Ram Gopal Varma is bereaved. His cousin P Som Shekar, who is a less-known film personality and businessman, has succumbed to Covid-19.
Shekar, who was a go-to man for RGV on films like Rangeela, Satya, and Company, was undergoing treatment for the virus in Hyderabad. After helming the Hindi-language film 'Muskurake Dekh Zara', Shekar didn't show much interest in direction.
RGV said that Shekar had not been in touch with him for years because he was busy with his business activities.
JD Chakravarthy, the actor-director, mourned the demise of his friend, who he said shared a lot of likes in common with him.
