    Tony and Gamini were the most talented actor in the Sinhala Cinema. We are very sad to hear his demise. May he attained Nibbana.Susil

    If I say the most veteran films stars invented by the Sri Lankan cinema in its history were Joe, Gamini and Tony no body would disagree with me.

    First ever film I remember vividly is " Duhulu Malak" Tony played the part of an aggrieved husband to perfection and from that day on wards he was one of my favorite actors. RIP Dear Sir.

    When a man has done what he considers to be his duty to his people and his country, he can rest in peace. I believe he has made that effort and that is, therefore, why he will sleep for the eternity. May your soul rest in peace.
