Thiruvananthapuram: Popular Malayalam actress Saranya Sasi died at a private hospital here on Monday, sources close to her said. The 35-year-old actress was diagnosed with brain tumour years ago and underwent surgical procedure several times as part of the treatment.
When she faced a severe financial crisis, Saranya’s friends and well-wishers had raised funds for her treatment.
While she was undergoing treatment for tumour, she contracted COVID-19 in May this year. She recovered from the virus infection but her health condition worsened due to related complications.
Hailing from Pazhayangadi in Kannur district, she had acted in a few Malayalam movies like ‘Chacko Randaman’ and ‘Chotta Mumbai’ and was a popular TV actress in the state. PTI
