Director Thamira breathed his last today (April 27) morning. He was reportedly diagnosed with COVID-19 a few days ago and was admitted to a private hospital in Chennai. The treatment didn’t work for him and he succumbed to the deadly virus. His mortal remains will be taken to his native place, Tirunelveli.

Thamira had worked as an assistant to famous directors like K Balachander and Bharathiraja, and he also directed the films Aan Devathai and Rettaisuzhi.

Covid-19 second wave has been taking many lives. Last year, Kayal actor Florent C Pereria also passed away due to COVID.
