Director-writer N Seetharam took to Facebook to mourn the demise of Hulivana Gangadhar.

He wrote, “The passing of my friend Hulivana Gangadhar has caused me a lot of pain. His performance as a driver in my play Aaspota not just made him popular, it also made the play a big success. When George Fernandes saw the play, he liked his performance the most. He played the role of chief minister Rajananda Swamy in my serial Muktha Muktha and earned everyone’s appreciation. He was part of 127 stage shows of mine and worked for 3 and a half years on the TV serial. We had become very good friends. Later, he got full time into farming back in his native, after which we rarely got to meet each other. It was seven or eight days ago, I last saw him. Today, the news of his demise has brought me pain.”
