Kochi: The funeral of popular Malayalam actor and anchor Subi Suresh (41) was held at Cheranalloor cemetery in Kochi. She was cremated after being kept at Puthenpally auditorium, Varapuzha for public homage.

Eminent personalities from the film-television-political fraternities, friends and fans came to pay their last respects to the actor, who died on Wednesday while undergoing treatment for liver-related ailments.

Although Subi’s relative was ready to donate her liver, the transplantation did not happen as her condition worsened the other day. She passed away around 10 am.

Known for her slapstick roles, and spontaneous on-stage dialogue delivery, Suresh had a huge fan following among audiences in small and big screens.

Beginning her career as a mimicry artist in the Cochin Kalabhavan troupe years ago, she gradually created a niche for herself in male-dominated comedy shows on stage and television.

Within a short period, she had become an inevitable presence in the live stage shows, organised by various television channels, and won the hearts of audiences through her hilarious avatars in famous TV series like "Cinemala."

She also proved her mettle as a successful TV host in various channels. Entering the tinsel town in 2006 through the movie "Kanaka Simhasanam", Subi Suresh essayed small but memorable roles in over 20 films, including "Elsamma Enna Aankutty" and "Happy Husbands".

She is survived by her parents and brother. People from various walks of life expressed shock over the unexpected demise of the actor-anchor.

Condoling her death, Chief Minister Pinarayi Vijayan said that she won a place in the hearts of Malayalis through reality shows and comedy programmes. A promising artist, who had a great future ahead, has been lost through the demise of Subi Suresh, he said in his message.
