Malayalam movie industry and the audiences bid goodbye to their favourite actor Kalabhavan Mani, yesterday. Mani's funeral was held at Chalakkudy, yesterday with the complete state honours.
Mani's sudden death was a huge shock to his industry friends, who were totally unaware of his health condition. Popular actors, including Mammootty, Dileep, Nadhirshah etc shared their memories about Mani, through the media.
Kalabhavan Mani, who was in the most critical stage of liver cirrhosis, was hospitalised a few days back after he was found unconscious in his outhouse. But he succumbed to death, on February 6th, evening.
But shockingly, traces of poison was found in his body, which led into a huge controversy. The case is being investigated by the Thrissur police, and the actor's body was sent for postmortem. Actor Jaffer Idukki was questioned upon the same.
As per the latest updates, the forensic lab confirmed that there was no external poison in Mani's body. It was the excess alcohol content, which later turned into poison and resulted in his death.
Kalabhavan Mani was in a stage which even medicines stopped reacting in his body. The actor was advised to not drink alcohol, as it was the same habit which resulted in the liver dysfunction.
But Mani chose to ignore the advice of his doctors and pretended to be fine in front of his friends. However, the police is planning to close the investigation, as it is proven that it was a normal death.
