Prominent actor-director of the Kannada Film Industry Vijay Raghavendra lost his wife Spandana Vijay to cardiac arrest this Monday in Bangkok, Thailand. She was 44.

Actor Vijay Raghavendra's Wife Spandana Died At 44:

The news has sent everyone in the Kannada film industry in shock waves as Raghavendra's brother Sri Murali announced the news quoting his brother who informed the family from Thailand. He reportedly said, his wife Spandana went to sleep and didn't wake up the next morning. The cause of death is said to be cardiac arrest and is suspected to be due to complications that arose because of low blood pressure.


Raghavendra and Spandana were married for 16 years and have a son named Shorya. The couple had their wedding anniversary this month on 26 August. 

Spandana is the daughter of retired ACP B K Shivaram and niece of prominent Congress MLC B K Hariprasad. While Spandana made a cameo appearance in her husband's film Apoorva, she has produced four films of her husband. 

The deceased mortal remains are said to be brought back tomorrow to India in Bengaluru where her last rituals will be performed. 


After hearing the tragic news of the family, a video shot just 2 months ago of Raghavendra surfaced on the Internet where the actor is seen giving an emotional speech about his wife expressing his gratitude for her support with teary eyes. 

<blockquote class="twitter-tweet"><p lang="kn" dir="ltr">This was just 2 months back!💔<br><br>ಯಾಕ್ ದೇವ್ರು ಒಳ್ಳೆಯವ್ರಿಗೆ ನೋವು ಕೊಡ್ತಾನೆ? ರಾಘು ಸರ್ ಆ ದೇವ್ರು ನಿಮಗೆ ಈ ನೋವು ಭರಿಸೋ ಶಕ್ತಿ ಕೊಡ್ಲಿ🙏🏻<a href=";ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw">#Spandana</a> <a href=";ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw">#VijayRaghavendra</a> <a href=""></a></p>&mdash; Ullas (@Ullasshetty48) <a href="">August 7, 2023</a></blockquote> <script async src="" charset="utf-8"></script>

The actor's emotional speech can be loosely translated as talking about his long journey in life and facing ups and downs but having a very supportive family. He can be seen giving this emotional speech holding hands with his wife on a stage talking about how years later she came into his life and held his hands saying don't worry she will be always there with me in any situation, and that we had to face life and enjoy its beautiful moments together. 


As the whole Kannada Film Industry has been in shock, many prominent actors have expressed their grief for Raghavendra and their family in these difficult times.
