Popular Tamil producer Deepak Samidurai passed away recently due to Covid 19 complications. Director Era Saravanan of Kathukutty fame shared the news on his official social media pages and he was completely heartbroken about the demise of Deepak Samidurai. In his Facebook post, Era Saravanan mentioned that Deepak was less than 40 years and it is unfortunate that the talented producer lost his life at a young age. Deepak Samidurai was supposed to produce Era Saravanan's next film after Kathukutty, but due to various reasons, the project did not take off as planned.

Era Saravanan, in his post, recalled the beautiful moments that he shared with Deepak Samidurai during the production of his film. Producer Deepak was supposed to team up with actor Santhanam for his next production venture and the pre-production works for the film were reportedly happening in full swing. Unfortunately, the project will now be shelved. Director Era Saravanan's tweet read, "தில்லுக்கு துட்டு கன்னட பதிப்பின் தயாரிப்பாளர் தீபக். சந்தானம் சார் நடிப்பில் அடுத்த படத்தைத் தயாரிக்கும் பணிகளில் தீவிரமாக இருந்தவரை கொரோனா வீழ்த்திவிட்டது. ஐ.டி துறையில் பெரிதாகச் சாதித்தவர், சினிமா மீதான ஆர்வத்தில் தயாரிப்பாளர் ஆனார். என் பேரன்புக்காரனுக்கு கண்ணீர் அஞ்சலி...".

The tweet is loosely translated in English as "Deepak is the producer of Kannada remake of Dhillukku Dhuddu. When he was busily working on his next production, starring Santhanam, Covid took him down. After achieving huge success in the IT field, he entered cinema production with the utmost passion. My heartfelt condolences,". As Era Saravanan has stated in the post, Deepak Samidurai bankrolled the Kannada remake of Santhanam's Dhillukku Dhuddu and the Kannada version was called Gimmick. The film which featured Ganesh and Ronica Singh in the lead roles was directed by Naganna.

At this moment, Galatta Media expresses heartfelt condolences to Deepak Samidurai's family and prays for the departed soul to rest in peace. Era Saravanan, who shared the news about the death of producer Deepak, is the director of Jyotika's upcoming film, co-starring Sasikumar, and Samuthirakani. The film is produced by Suriya's 2D Entertainment.

As the second wave of Covid 19 is getting intense and severe with every passing day, Galatta Media urges you to wear a mask, follow the rules and restrictions imposed by the State and National Governments. Stay safe!
