Vishnu Through Someone's Eyes

Industry suffers one more shock today. Phoenix actor Dr. Vishnuvardhan is no more. Isn’t it an irony that he breathed his last in his hometown? Dad got a call around 2:30am last night asking to rush to Vikram hospital on security grounds. That’s when we knew.

I have known the Decent Star pretty close; not as a fan but through the eyes of a hard core fan. About his upcoming movies, number of well wishers he had, how he married Bharathi, the gun shot accident that occurred during the shoot of Gandhadagudi, his “Snehaloka” project and more such.

His fans most of the time talked about “always-offering-his-helping-hand” stories; be it Manohar or Dwarakish.

At office today while we discussed about the sudden loss someone asked “Are you a big fan?”
I said “Yes, not just of an artist but of a man who spread happiness with his presence”
