Asatha Povathu Yaaru fame Kovai Ramesh passed away

Kovai Ramesh


Tamil Mimicry artist Kovai Ramesh also known as Ramesh Kumar, who is known to leave his audience in fits of laughter, had them in tears on Saturday, he died in a road accident on his 40th birthday. Coincidentally, it was the birthday of driver Karthikeyan who also died in the fatal accident.

Kovai Ramesh started his career as a mimicry artist performing at stage shows. His acquaintance with Kovai Guna and Kovai Ashok lead him to the talent show ‘Kalakkapovadhu Yaaru’ telecast by Vijay TV in 2005. Since then there was no looking back for this talented artist who captivated the viewers by dressing in female attire and imitating yesteryear heroinesโ€™ voices.

Well, I gotta say that I am a big fan of him when it comes to mimicking actresses body language as well as their voices, such as those of Oorvasi, Banupriya, Banumathi, Saroja Devi and so on. Those were classic! Unfortunately, sad to say that he is no longer alive now. Although I rarely watch Asatha Povathu Yaaru nowadays as how I used to do last time, he would always be one of my top picks from that show. May his soul rest in peace.

    I am in utter shock. It’s so hard to believe that there is only a bunch of memories left that will remind us of his immense talent. For sure, the show will never be the same again. He was definitely one of the major attractions of the show. He will be greatly missed.
    May his soul rest in peace ?

    It is very very shocking news among the Australian Viewers ( Australia). Ramesh acting in Asatha povadhu yaaru show was so popular particularly in his dancing , singing and mimikiri lady Voices ( all famous film actresses) and it is very sad news for me and all other viewers. Eedu katta mudiyadha oru periya illapu. My heartly condolences to his family members and his friends including Asatha povathu Yaaru kuzhu Kudumbathukku.

    May his soul rest in peace.
