Actor-Cinematographer Shaman Mithru Dies Of COVID-19
New Delhi: Actor-cinematographer Shaman Mithru passed away in Chennai on Thursday due to Covid-19 complications. He was 43.
Reportedly, Shaman worked on several projects as a Director of Photography (DOP), made his acting debut with the film Thorati in 2019.
In an interview, the actor revealed that he became an actor by chance. “Thorati is a film that delves into the lives of shepherds who walk miles in search of pasture for their goats and sheep. This story happens in a village. And the lead actor who plays a shepherd needed to look like one. Not many actors would be willing to take the risks involved in getting tanned, losing tons of weight, and walking barefoot. So, I decided to take the plunge and do the role myself,” he had said while promoting the film.
Shaman Mithru is survived by his wife and five-year-old daughter.
