The actor, who was living with his family in Anagaputthur, was suffering from severe Jaundice and was undergoing treatment for the same. His health condition deteriorated in the wee hours of Friday (7 March) and he was taken to the hospital. Doctors could not save him and the actor breathed his last. Balaji is survived by his wife and three children.
Besides appearing in television shows, Balaji has reportedly done several films in Tamil, including Simbu's "Silambattam" and Karunas's "Dindigul Sarathy". He has also written dialogues for actor Siva's 2013-release "Thillu Mullu", a remake of the Rajinikanth starrer of the same name.
Balaji known for his comic sense, was very popular in comedy shows that spoof Tamil films and make it a laugh riot.
The sudden death of the actor, who was popularly known as "Lollu Sabha Balaji", has come as a shock to many.
Last November, comedian Chitti Babu passed away after he slipped into a coma. The actor who was known for his hit TV shows, "Hari Giri Assembly", "Comedy Time" and "Asathapovadhu Yaaru", was admitted to a private hospital, where he passed away on 8 November. The demise of Balaji within a few months of Chitti Babu's death will be another shock for Tamil cinema fans and small screen viewers.
Actor Santhanam, who has starred in "Lollu Sabha", will be arriving in Chennai to pay his last respects to Balaji, according to a report in Behindwoods.
