RS Sivaji, an actor and comedian, passed away unexpectedly at the age of 66 after experiencing a cardiac arrest.

The Kollywood actor, who was well-known for his Tamil film roles, passed away on Saturday morning in Chennai, India.

It happened just a day after his most recent movie, Lucky Man, in which he co-starred with Yogi Babu, was shown in theaters.

Over 100 films, including Sathya, Apoorva Sagodharangal, Michael Madana Kama Rajan, and Anbe Sivam, were directed by Shivaji.

The information about his passing was confirmed by a Facebook post that was likely shared by a relative.

“My appa RS Shivaji had a cardiac arrest and died suddenly,” it said.

“Appa’s body is at the Narayani Apartments in Chennai’s Kamaraj Salai neighborhood. I appreciate everyone’s assistance at this time.

On X, formerly known as Twitter, journalist Ramesh Bala also paid homage to the comedian who made his film debut in the 1980s.

“Popular Tamil comedy/character actor #RSShivaji passed away in Chennai this morning,” he wrote.

“He performed in this Friday’s film, LuckyMan, and has played a number of iconic roles, such as #ApoorvaSagodharargal, among others.

“God rest his soul.”

Shivaji is the brother of Kollywood actress and director Santhana Bharathi and the son of actor and producer M.R. Santhanam.

He charmed audiences in comedic roles in Tamil films while also making an impression in a number of somber dramas.

The actor received praise for his portrayal of Sai Pallavi’s father in the 2022 movie Gargi.

Soorarai Pottru, Kolamavu Kokila, Villain, 8 Thottakkal, and Parris Jeyaraj are a few other roles worth mentioning.

Tamil film fans frequently quote his infamous phrase “God, you have gone to another level” from the 1989 film Apoorva Sagodharangal.

Shivaji was not only a renowned actor but also a gifted assistant director, sound designer, and line producer.

On TV programs like Kula Vilakku, Ethanai Konam Ethanai Paarvai, Anbulla Snehidhiye, Maruthani, and Vallamai Tharayo, he also demonstrated his acting skills.
