The mortal remains of Kannada actress Vaishali Kasaravalli, who died of kidney failure at 5.00 pm on Monday at Manipal Hospital Jayanagar in Bangalore, was laid to rest. Her funeral was held according to her family tradition at Banashankari Crematorium in Bangalore yesterday evening (28th September). Earlier, it was reported that her cremation would be held at Wilson Garden Crematorium in Bangalore. But it was shifted to Banshankari due to traffic problems.
Before the funeral, Vaishali's body was kept for public darshan at Samsa Rangamandir in Ravindra Kala Kshetra Bangalore between 12.00 and 3.00 pm. Thousands of film fraternity, writers, politicians, friends and fans paid their last respect to her departed soul. Her body was taken to Banshankari Crematorium, where the final rites were performed in the evening.
However, Vaishali Kasaravalli had been ailing from diabetic, which caused her liver damage and kidney failure. Recently, she was admitted to the Manipal Hospital Jayanagar in Bangalore. She died at the hospital while she was undergoing dialysis for renal malfunctioning.
Vaishali had acted in hundreds of plays, films and TV serials. She had directed a few popular serials like 'Moodala Mane', 'Muttina Torana' and 'Mauna Raga'. She had even translated a few Hindi and Marathi plays to Kannada. Her untimely death is a great loss to the Kannada film industry.
May her soul rest in peace and may god give strength to her family to bear her loss.
