image Prominent film personalities and several thousand avid fans of actor Nagesh attended the mourning procession from his residence at Mylapore to Besant Nagar crematorium on Sunday.

The veteran comedian, who sizzled the screen for over five decades with his humour, passed away on Saturday.

His mortal remains were cremated at Besant Nagar crematorium on Sunday. Earlier, AIADMK supremo J Jayalalithaa visited his house and placed a wreath. Jayalalithaa, recalling the actor’s multi- faceted talent, said he had donned the roles of a comedian, character artist as well as that of a villain during his illustrious career.

She remembered the time she shared screen space with Nagesh during her film career three decades ago. Jayalalithaa recalled a particular song enacted by them in the movie ‘Naan’ which had gone down well with the audience. His loss is an irreparable one to Tamil cinema.
