Contrary to media reports that Srihari died of liver problem and cancer, actor-filmmaker Prabhudeva said that he died of cardiac arrest. He said Srihari was shooting with him and he knows what exactly happened. He says just because Srihari’s grieving family didn’t reveal the cause of death, doesn’t give media the privilege to write their own reasons.
Prabhudeva added that Srihari was shooting with his with Rambo Rajkumar, when he suddenly fell unconscious and was later rushed to a hospital. He said Srihari was as fit as a lion and whatever happened was unexpected and people should speculate his cause of death.
Srihari passed away Wednesday in Bombay. Reacting to the news, Prabhu said that he was always treated by Srihari as a brother. He said they were best friends and he always enjoyed working with him. Since he loved his performance so much that he decided to cast him opposite Shahid Kapoor in Rambo Rajkumar.
