      Sharing the news of his demise, the Twitter handle of Nadigar Sangam (South Indian Artistes' Association) read, "#RIPSrikanth !!" Rajinikanth too mourned his loss, as he tweeted in Tamil, "I am deeply saddened by the demise of my friend Srikanth. May his soul rest in peace." (loose translation)

      The actor made his acting debut opposite late J Jayalalithaa with the 1965 film Vennira Aadai directed by CV Sridhar. In a career spanning over 40 years, Srikanth played main hero, villain and even character roles, which were all well-received by the audiences.
