The news has taken everyone by shock and people are sharing their condolence messages on social media. It should be noted that Anitha Sampath got evicted from the ongoing season of Bigg Boss Tamil and returned home, just two days back. The situation is highly unfortunate and we hope she gains the strength to overcome these testing times. Anitha Sampath has always loved her family so much and we have seen her expressing her love for them in several occasions during the Bigg Boss show.

Anitha’s father played a key role in cultivating the usage of Tamil which helped Anitha majorly in becoming a talented newsreader. RC Sampath is known for writing the Tamil novel, Krishna Devarayar. He has written several other books in Tamil. We at Galatta Media prays for the departed soul to rest in peace and express our heartfelt condolences to Anitha’s family and friends.
