Chennai, April 13 (IANS) Actor-cum-AIADMK leader J.K. Ritheesh died of cardiac arrest on Saturday.

Ritheesh, 46, is survived by his wife Jotheeswari and a son.

Returning to his home in Ramanathapuram district for lunch after campaigning for BJP’s Ramanathapuram Lok Sabha candidate Nainar Nagendran, he had complained of uneasiness and was rushed to the hospital where doctors declared him dead.
