Comedian and his friend Ali said, "He never lets anyone have any kind of bad feelings towards him. He is a good person and we know how well he used to treat people in his neighbourhood. He always used to help people in need by giving ration for two to three months. He was very sick during MAA elections but he worked for betterment of the association without letting any of us know. Recently he was discharged from the hospital and again, he succumbed to the same disease. I can't express how void I feel now"
Sivaji Raja said, "I, Ali and Uttej used to go for events and he joined us as a mimicry artist. He is an extremely funny person and a man with good heart. We will miss him!"
Dr. Rajasekhar said, "I came to the hospital few days ago and he welcomed with a broad smile. He said he will recover and act with me soon. He used to make us all laugh on sets and the films I worked with him gave him good name as an actor. He always used to wish me and my family for every festival and to think that he is no more, makes my heart swell in sadness. May his family find strength in his absence!"
