he will live in our hearts!!

A couple of months back, when I was in chennai, my father came down for some work. He went out somewhere in the afternoon and when he came back in the evening, he was looking a little disturbed. When asked, he told me : “I went to SRMC [sri ramachandra medical college] with mammootty to meet haneefa. His health isn’t looking very good.”

Later on, after a few days when I asked him about haneef uncle s health, he told me its better. But yesterday evening, right before I had a meeting with an aspiring actor, I got a msg like this: “nammude priyappetta eldo ini nammalodoppamilla. Our great haneefa passed away.”

It was shocking. But then, I had to focus on my meeting. I covered up my emotional side for a while, tried my best to make this actor as comfortable as possible, so that he would give me good results in front of my mobile camera [it was an unofficial audition]. But right after I left his hotel room, I called up a media person to find out about the situation. He told me that the body had already been taken away from chennai. I missed seeing him for one last time.

So many things are flashing through my mind right now.

Jagadish uncle [actor] making up stories about him, making all of us laugh, during a trip to dubai, when haneef uncle was right beside;

me and my family having lunch in his house in chennai [long time back], when my father and haneef uncle would laugh so loud, cracking jokes one after the other;

while shooting for cycle, the conversation I had with him about rajanikanth [he was telling me his experience working in Sivaji];

a flight journey I shared with him –   this can go on….

Sri Cochin Haneefa will live in our hearts. Its mourning day for all of us. Lets pray for his family.

Vineeth..

    Yes Vinee….We will miss him badly in the coming years. I’ve seen him only on screen and been an admirer of his directing and acting talent which made us laugh and cry. But today after going through the many blogs and reports on the net i came to know that how good a human being he was. As you said he will live in our hearts…

    “He was a person who struggled and rose to the heights. And his greatness was that he has helped numerous people in his life. He was immediately accepted by the audience when he shifted from being a villain to a comedian and this was because of his superior acting skills,

    Yesterday I was busy with many appointments [purely official]. From the visual medias, I came to know that public can see his body for d last tym @ ambedkar stadium between 2pm and 4pm. I arranged som tym to go there, after conviencing my bosss. The big crowd @ stadium reveals d fact hw mch hanifikka was loved by mallus. People from all walks of life including film personalities, politicians and cultural leaders turned up to pay homage to the actor as the body was brought for funeral prayers. Many were seen wiping their tears when the body was lowered into the crypt after the funeral prayers. Wit d help of salimikka [producer], I got green signal frm d security officers to stay near the body for few minutes n to hv a close watch on d body of tht gr8 actor.

    I came across this website just today.It looks like a great place to share thoughts.Seems like u were really close to Haneefa sir, Vineeth.He was indeed an amazing actor,comedian and am sure he was a wonderful person, though i dont him offscreen. I really loved all his work,he’s given so many ppl joy in his own way. Was really Shocked to hear abt his demise and felt really sad thinking how we’d all miss him and his movies. But happy that he doesnt have to suffer[illness] anymore and am sure he is in a better place now(for those who believe in afterlife)..REST IN PEACE Asaane!!

    i don’t know if u r in a mood to read this since u r a bit disturbed due to haneef sirs demise.but just noticed that everytime u write u unknowingly just leave behind a trace of the good human being u r.in this page u mention that u were meeting just an aspiring actor and u were extremely low due to sir’s demise.but the professional u r, u did not think about postponing the audition when u could have easily asked him to come another day.really nice that u tried to hold ur emotions and keep a smiling face so that he could perform well. if u would keep a dull face he would probably think that his perfomance was too low and would go home without any hopes.he might have gone home happy because of ur pleasant face.it was really caring of u.u mention that on the 9th of jan u were the 45th person who was nervous about the auditions. i was thinking “why” why should a judge be nervous before sentencing an accused.u could have been relaxed since u were on the judging seat but u preferred to be nervous for them. may be u just had a lot of feelings for those who were coming with a lot of hopes and u had connected with them though u dont know them personally. probably u just placed urself in their place and thought about how u used to feel before an exam.really hats off to the person who thinks that global warming is an important issue but even more important is to just respect the people around u.got bored?? im stopping .thanks 4 reading till this line… and dont regret not seeing haneef uncle for the last time as u r one of the lucky few who got to share a lot of memorable moments with him ,many of his admirors may have never been able to meet him personally.
