Popular Telugu child artist Gokul Sai Krishna, also known as Junior Balakrishna, passed away on Thursday (October 17) due to Dengue. Gokul was famous for mimicking Telugu actor Nandamuri Balakrishna's antics. He rose to fame through the popular reality show, Drama Juniors, which aired on Zee Telugu.

Gokul hailed from the Madanapalli town of the Chittoor district. According to reports, the actor was down with a fever a couple of days and was about to be shifted to a private hospital in Bengaluru for further treatment when his condition deteriorated and he breathed his last before he could even make it to the hospital. Actor Balakrishna offered his condolences to Gokul's parents. "There is nothing more valuable to me than my fans. Gokul is one among them and his sudden death has broken my heart. He admired me so much and I am always in awe of his dialogue delivery and histrionics," his post on Facebook read.

Drama Juniors' anchor Anasuya Bharadwaj, who was devastated upon hearing the news, posted, "I loved and love you always so much... I pray for strength to his mother and father who were an inspiration to parents who support their children to pursue what they want.. #GoneTooSoon #RIPGokulSai My child...
