THIRUVANANTHAPURAM: Veteran Malayalam actress Srividya passed away at a private hospital in Kerala Thursday evening after suffering from cancer. She was 53.

She acted in more than 300 Malayalam films, and played the female lead with all the big names of the film industry.

Daughter of eminent classical singer M.L. Vasanthakumari, Srividya entered the film world at a very young age doing a prominent role in the Sivaji Ganesan-starrer ‘Thiruvarul Selvar’. She, however, made it big in Malayalam ever since her debut film ‘Chattambikavala’ in 1969. Apart from acting she was also a popular dancer and singer. 


Her funeral will take place here Friday.
