In a shocking and unexpected turn of events, popular Tamil actor Babu (Pallu Babu) was found dead inside an auto in Chennai. It is said that Babu was suffering from poverty due to the lockdown and was roaming on the roads of Chennai. Earlier this morning (March 23), he was found dead inside an auto where he slept last night. Though it is said that he died due to a cardiac arrest, an official word regarding the cause of death is awaited. Babu's demise has come as a shocking news for the people of Tamil Nadu and everyone is mourning his demise on social media.

For the uninformed, Babu got his breakthrough and wide popularity with his brief role as Viruchigakanth in the Bharath - Sandhya starrer Kaadhal, directed by Balaji Sakthivel and produced by Shankar. Though he appeared only for that one particular scene, it gave him a wide reach and his dialogues became a viral content on social media. His role as an aspiring actor who wants to become only a hero was very interesting and the sequence cannot be erased from the memories of the Tamil audience. All of us would have seen at least one meme with his shot from the film.

However, Pallu Babu did not manage to get more opportunities after Kaadhal and life turned upside down. A few years before, he was found begging on the roads and the videos of him begging went viral on social media. Seeing his plight, actors like Mansoor Ali Khan, Bigg Boss Aari Arujunan, Abi Saravanan, and others came forward and lent their helping hands to Pallu Babu. It is highly unfortunate to hear about this tragic demise of actor Pallu Babu and let us pray for the departed soul to rest in peace. According to reports, Babu's brother and mother had died recently of cardiac arrest. Further details are awaited.
