Up and coming actor Dileepan, who played the protagonist in the recently released 'Sembattai', passed away in Madurai on Friday.
It is said that he was suffering from fever and stomach ailment and hence was admitted to a private hospital in Madurai, which is close to his native village.
However, without responding to treatment, the 32-year-old actor breathed his last Friday morning. He is survived by two brothers and a sister.
After playing supporting roles in movies such as 'Azhagia Theeye', 'Pattiyal' and 'Sindhanai Sei', Dileepan, a former student of Koothu Pattarai, got the chance to enact the lead character in 'Sembattai'. May his soul rest in peace.
