Veteran actor Sarath Babu has passed away at a city hospital in Hyderabad. The 71-year-old was suffering from kidney and liver-related issues leading to many speculations over his health in the past few weeks. Born as Sathyam Babu Dixithulu on July 31, 1951, in Amudalavalasa in AP, he adopted Sarath Babu for the screen. He started his career in films in 1973 with Rama Rajyam in Telugu but got a big break with K Balachander for the film Nizhal Nijamagiradu in 1978 which was remade into Idi kadha kaadu in Telugu.
He started acting in almost all the south Indian languages and became one of the busiest actors. His role in the 1987 Samsaram Oka Chadarangam was one the most relatable characters where he played a typical middle-class self-centred man in a joint family. This Tamil remake of Visu’s Samsaram Adhu Minsaram, put forth the subject in an entertaining narrative supported by Sowkar Janaki and Gollapudi Maruthi Rao. There were ten releases in Telugu alone in 1988.
Some of his significant films are Panthulamma, Maro Charitra, 47 Rojulu, Abhinandana, Sriramadasu, Magadheera, Animutym, Jeevana Jyothi, Chattamto Chadarangam, Prana Snehitulu and the recent one being Pawan Kalyan’s Vakeel Saab in 2021. Sarath Babu had a successful television stint as well, with series such as Antharangaalu (1997-2001) Janani (2000-2001) and Agnigundaalu (2005-26).
