Vishnuvardhan Death?

One of the stalwarts of the Kannada film Industry Vishnuvardhan died of a heart attack in Mysore late on Tuesday evening. The popular Kannada actor, whose real name was Sampath Kumar, passed away. Vishnuvardhan was popularly referred to as the Phoenix of Kannada cinema. I'm so saddened by Vishnuvardhan's death. How many movies did he make?

Can't still believe Vishnuvardhan's death. Vishnuvardhan acted in 199 films, won 7 Filmfare Awards and many state government awards.

He is popularly regarded as one of the most versatile, talented, stylish and popular actors in the Kannada film Industry. His role in romantic, action, emotional, music, comedy or a family dramas have been widely popular in Kannada. Born Sampath Kumar, he adopted the name Vishnuvardhan at the instance of Puttanna Kanagal who directed his maiden film Nagarahavu.

Vishnuwardhan is married to Kannada actress Bharati on 27 February 1975 at Kuchalamba Kalyana Mantapa in Bangalore. He has two adopted daughters, Keerthi and Chandana. Keerthi is married to Anirudh, an upcoming actor in the Kannada Film industry. Vishnuvardhan has one elder brother and four sisters.
