Sreenath (Malayalam: ശ്രീനാഥ്; August 26, 1956 – April 23, 2010) was a popular Malayalam film and television actor. He acted in many hit films, including Shalini Ente Koottukari, Ithu Njangalude Katha, Oru CBI Diary Kurippu, and Kireedam.[1]

Sreenath was a Shiv Sena candidate from the Attingal Lok Sabha constituency in 2009 Lok Sabha elections.[1]

Personal life[edit]

At the start of his film career, he worked with actress Shanthi Krishna in a few hit movies and fell in love during the shoot of Ithu Njangalude Katha.[2] He later married her at Guruvayoor Temple in September 1984. But the marriage didn't work and the two parted ways in September 1995.[3]

He wed again to Latha later. The couple has a son named Viswajith.[4]

Career[edit]

Sreenath began his film career in the 1980s, but slowly shifted his focus to television acting although he continued to act in films occasionally.

His popular films include Shalini Ente Koottukari, Ithu Njangalude Katha, Oru CBI Diary Kurippu, Kireedam, and Devaasuram. Sreenath's last film was the 2009's Kerala Cafe, a movie that had 10 short films woven around a common theme.

Sreenath was winner of state award for best TV actor twice.[5]

Death[edit]

Sreenath was found dead in a hotel room in Kothamangalam in Kerala on April 23, 2010. Police have not ruled out the possibility of suicide as his wrist was found slashed.[6] He had been in Kothamangalam for the shooting of Malayalam film "Shikar" starring Mohanlal.

Sreenath's younger brother Satyanath held a press meet and said they suspected foul play in his death. Sreenath was shooting for Malayalam film 'Shikar' starring superstar Mohanlal. Satyanath said it was shocking that no one from the sets of 'Shikar' came to attend the funeral and did not even call the actor's family. Meanwhile, reports said the actor was omitted from the film 'Shikar' since he was not a member of the Association of Malayalam Movie Artistes (AMMA). Kerala Home Minister Kodiyeri Balakrishnan said Police have been ordered to probe the death of Sreenath.[7]
