The year 2020 has been a rank bad one for the film industry which not only is reeling under the pressure of the COVID 19 lockdowns but has also lost many of its members to the virus and other causes.

Popular film editor Kola Bhaskar has passed away today in Hyderabad at the age of 55. It is said that he was suffering from oral cancer for some time and complications arouse due to it.

Bhaskar is known for his long association with director Selvaraghavan editing many of his acclaimed films including '7G Rainbow Colony', 'Pudhupettai', 'Mayakkam Enna', 'Aayirathil Oruvan', '3' and 'Irandaam Ulagam'. He also worked in Vijay's blockbuster film 'Pokkiri' and 'Villu'.

In 2016 Kola Bhasker produced the film 'Maalai Nerathu Mayakkam' in which his son Balakrishna Kola made his debut as a hero. The film was written by Selvaraghavan and directed by Gitanjali Selvaraghavan. Tributes are pouring in from the Tamil and Telugu industries and we pray for the talented technician's soul to rest in peace.
