In a surprising tragic incident, the senior actor popularly known as ‘Yo My Love’ for his role in popular comedy serial ‘Tito Satya’ had died. The actor was performing in a theatre play at the time of his death. Mid-way in the play, he had suddenly died in the evening of January 3, 2017, Tuesday in Rastriya Naachghar, Jamal, Kathmandu.
The 80-years old actor is the second actor of ‘Tito Satya’ who has died in a month. Last month, another comedy actor popularly known as Ladalam, RP Bhattarai had died. They both have died of heart failure.
The actor had been active in the Nepali film and theatre for about five decades and was living alone. His wife had died previously and his sons were living separately.
In ‘Tito Satya’, Bishnu Bhakta Phuyal was featured as the father of Deepa Shree Niraula.
At the time of death, Phuyal was playing king Janak in a play titled ‘Maharshi Yagyawalakya’. He was performing well and after a dialogue delivery he stood up to tell another line of dialogue. But, he collapsed on the shoulder of his fellow co-artist. He was rushed to the emergency of Bir Hospital, where he was pronounced dead. The last rituals of the artist is being scheduled on January 4 at Pashupati.
I wish the deceased soul rest in peace.
