Rami Reddy, one of the famous names in the 90’s in Bollywood and in the South Indian film industry, passed away on April 14, 2011 without the film industry even batting an eyelid to it.
Born in Valmikipuram village of Andhra Pradesh’s Chittoor district on January 1, 1959, Rami Reddy was a journalism graduate from the famous Osmania University. After completing his course, Reddy ventured into acting. His career as a villain was a credible one as he acted not only in Telegu films but was also regarded as a successful actor in negative roles in Bollywood. His negative role as Chikara in the 1993 release ‘Waqt Hamara Hai’ and as Anna in ‘Pratibandh’ won him a lot of appreciation and made him a directors’ favorite choice in no time.
However, despite being such a famous name and more importantly a good actor, Rami Reddy died a tragic death as he was diagnosed with liver cancer. Thereafter, he started avoiding public appearances and tried to spend more time at the comfort of his home.
While fighting liver cancer, he received another body blow when he was diagnosed with severe kidney complications. His health thereafter started deteriorating at a faster pace.
The film industry is a one-of-a-kind place, where even legends are remembered as long as they are in the public eye. And Rami was just a good actor, trying to make his mark both in the South Indian and Hindi film industries.
Finally, the noted villain, who worked in more than 200 films, breathed his last at a private hospital in Hyderabad on April 14, 2011. At his deathbed, Rami was absolutely unrecognizable, being literally reduced to just a stack of bones from the well-bodied person that he was. Here’s a proof of the same:
