Malayalam actor Augustine passes away!

A sad news for Malayalam film fans

Malayalam film actor Augustine died at a private hospital today morning. The ailing actor was 58 and is survived by his wife and two daughters, one of whom is upcoming actor Ann Augustine.  His funeral will be held tomorrow.  Beginning his acting career through theater, Augustine entered the Malayalam film industry in the mid eighties and since then he has acted in more than 100 films.  Augustine suffered a stroke in 2010 and since then even though not fully fit, he acted in a few films.  Recently his health deteriorated further and was hospitalised frequently. Even though never a front line actor, Augustine excelled when he acted alongside superstars Mammootty and Mohanlal.  Notable among his films were Commissioner, Devasuram, Ekalavyan, Aaran Thampuran, Kazhcha and Katha Paryumbol. “He did not become an actor overnight. Instead he made use of small roles that came his way and peaked…he had extremely talented film professionals as his close friends,” said Innocent, the president of the actor’s body, AMMA.

His last film was Shutter that was released early this year.  Prominent director Renjith kept him company all through his career and was seen in every film of his. RIP Augustine!
