A Tamil actor who is recognized for his role in the movie En Uyir Thozhan has passed away at the age of 60. He has been bedridden for the past 30 years.
In the early 1990s, during a shoot of the movie Manasara Vaalthungalaen, Babu met with an accident. In the scene, the actor had to make a high jump, and despite the team’s suggestion of using a body double, he attempted the stunt by himself and suffered a serious back injury.
That horrible accident marked the end of his film career. Despite undergoing multiple surgeries, the veteran actor was completely bedridden for 30 years.

The Indian film actor and director Bharathiraja visited Babu in person to inquire about his well-being before his death. Also, as per the information available, his health condition got too weak, and he was admitted to the hospital. But he died in bed. His death has left the film industry in mourning.

Unfortunately, due to a tragic accident on a film set, he spent more than three decades bedridden.
