Kochi: The funeral of Malayalam actress, television host and stage-show performer, Subi Suresh, who died on Wednesday, will be held at Cheranalloor cemetery here on Thursday afternoon.

At present, the body has been kept at the mortuary itself. It will be brought to her residence at Varappuzha by tomorrow 8 am. Her body will be kept for public homage at the nearby Puthenpally auditorium from 10 am to 2 pm. The funeral will be held at 3 pm.

She was 42 and was reportedly under treatment for liver related ailments for some time. 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 the male-dominated comedy shows on stage and in television. Within a short span of time, 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 "Kanakasimhasanam", Subi Suresh essayed small but memorable roles in over 20 films, including "Elsamma Enna Aankutty" and "Happy Husbands".

She is survived by parents and a 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.
