The 32-year-old star had recently visited the holy places like Dharmastala and Kukke Subramnya. His health condition was not good when he returned on this Saturday. Immediately, he was admitted to a private hospital in Bangalore, but he could not recover, says his family sources.
The actor completed his primary schooling in Sri Kumaran's School and joined National High School in Jayanagar. He got graduation in BBM from Jain College Bangalore. Right from his college days, he was interested in acting and he acted in a couple of plays like 'Naanu Neenu'.
Naveen Mayur debuted in Kannada films with Sunilkumar Desai directed movie Sparsha, which featured Sudeep in the lead. Later, he acted in movies like Lava Lavike, Upendra's Uppi Dada MBBS, Poorvapara, Ninagoskar, Preeti Mado Hudugarigella, Nanna Hendti Kole, Avanandre Avane, Neela and Hello.
He was one of the 25 persons selected from South India for The Regional Scanning of Graviera Mr India in 1997. He was a descent actor, but he was unnecessarily dragged into controversy of Kudlu Ramakrishna's Hello film. Later, he was proved innocent at KFCC.
According to his family sources, Naveen's brother Shreyas, who is staying in the USA, had invited him to visit America. He had even booked an air ticket for him. But the actor's fate did not allow him to go there. Naveen's sudden death is an irreplaceable loss to Kannada film industry.
We, at Oneindia, express deepest condolences to his family. May his soul rest in peace.
