Actor Mada passes away

Sunday, October 25, 2015 (All day)

Senior actor Mada Venkateshwara Rao breathed his last today (Oct 24) after battling with lung problem for days. He was recently admitted in Apollo Hospitals in Hyderabad and later was discharged when he seemed he was on way to recovery. Better known for his role in Chillarakottu Chilakamma (1977), Venkateshwara Rao had done comedy roles in many films.

But he won popularity for his song "Soodu Pinnamma Paadu Pilladu" which was a rage in the 70s.
