    If you see Anton's house in Wallaw Watta, Ratmalana, you will be surprised. A sad fact that most tele drama actors are not rewarded for their work in Sri Lanka. RIP

    One of the most talented actors to come up in recent times. Even though he mostly played the role of a comedian he was extremely talented and could play any character convincingly. A great loss to Sinhala cinema and music.We shall surely miss him. May his soul rest in peace.
