National Award winning lyricist Na Muthukumar died here on Sunday due to jaundice, a source said. He was 41.

“He passed away at his residence. He was suffering from high fever and succumbed to jaundice,” the source close told IANS.

When he began his career, he wanted to be a director. It was with the 2000 release Tamil film “Veera Nadai” that Muthukumar started his journey as a lyricist.

In a career lasting over a decade, he wrote around 1,000 songs. He holds a special record for penning 103 songs in 2012.

Most popular for his collaboration with composers Yuvan Shankar Raja and G.V Prakash, he reportedly wrote over 200 songs in the latter’s composition.

“Can’t believe this. Na Muthukumar is no more… He’s written more than 200 songs in my films. A huge loss. May god give strength to his family,” Prakash tweeted.

“My music career started with his lyric in veyilodu vilayadi … He had written all the songs in #KIK ,” he added.

Prakash added that his musical career started with Muthukumar’s song “Veyilodu Vilayadi” from the National Award winning Tamil film “Veyyil”.

Two of his songs “Aanandha Yazhai Meetugiraai” (from “Thanga Meengal”) and “Azhage Azhage” (from “Saivam”) fetched him National Awards.

Some of his other popular songs include “Suttum Vizhi”, “Devathaiyai Kandaen”, “Mun Andhi” and “Venillave”.

    Something very fishy in his death. This is second death of cinema personalities attributed to jaundice in the recent months. Kalabhavan Mani is the other. Did these people do anything against GoI or in support of Eelam Tamils? Then there is a possibility of causing their death by GoI. We should not forget the brutal macre of 20 Tamils in Andra Pradesh on the orders of GoI.

          It is really unbelievable to say that the Lyricist Muthukumar died due to Jaundice at the age of 41 and unable to understand why the Doctor's failed to treat the decease or due to wrong diagnosis. May his soul rest in peace and the Tamil Film World loses one of its finest Lyricists and deep condolences to his family members.

            Muthukumar's death reminds me that of Bharathiar, who died young at the age of 39 as an unsung hero of Tamilnadu.
