Kannada actor and politician Ambareesh, who was lovingly called Mandyada Gandu, breathed his last yesterday on November 24, 2018 as he suffered from a cardic arrest and left a deep void in the Sandalwood film industry which can never be filled again. His sudden demise has brought sadness and grief all across Karnataka and he will surely be missed by one and all. Ambareesh was an avid fan of horse races and attended the Kingfisher Derby every year in Bangalore without fail. Here's a timeline of pictures of Ambareesh attending the Kingfisher Derby from 2013.
