    I have also seen the news of the death of the artist in a hospital in Bengaluru today. It is a sad news. He was a fine artist having knack for direction and series acting. He was well recognised for his contributions in Indian cinema. I pray to Almighty for his soul to rest in peace.

    I always hold him in high esteem as an artist. As Swami's father in Malgudi Days he was superb, so was he in a movie titled Swami, directed by Basu Chatterjee. He was extremely educated, which made him a respectable personality. May his soul rest in peace!

    My respects for the departed soul. Mr.Girish Karnad, apart from his contribution to the film industry, was a legend in the theatre and had written many books. He also lent his voice and support against the social problems faced by the people of Karnataka.
