Popular stage, television and film actress Thodupuzha Vasanthi died today, according to family sources. She was 65.

Vasanthi was ailing for a while now.

In a film career that began in 1975, Vasanthi acted in over 450 films and was mostly seen doing side roles and even negative ones. Some of her popular films are Yavanika (1982), Poochakkoru Mookkuthi (1984) directed by Priyadarshan, and Nirakkoottu (1985).

In her four-decade-long career, she shared screen space with all the leading lights of the Malayalam film industry.

However, after she was diagnosed with cancer a few years ago, she was mostly in and out of hospital and it was only after local media reported her plight that the industry came to know about her condition.

The funeral will take place at Thodupuzha near her home town this evening.
