Veteran south actor Sarath Babu no more; leaders, stars condole his demise
Hyderabad/Chennai, May 22 (PTI) With a bespectacled face and a charming smile, Sarath Babu was the ageless "friend" who either travelled with the hero or fell out of favour, setting the stage for interesting duels with the male lead, which in most cases was either Rajinikanth or Kamal Haasan.
The 71-year-old actor breathed his last on Monday at Hyderabad after battling illness for some time. Stars and actors condoled his death and fondly recalled their professional and personal relationship with the thespian.
In a career spanning nearly five decades, he acted in about 250 films in his mother tongue Telugu, besides in Tamil and Kannada.
