    Why do we go after these Indian garbage?? Do Indians appreciate OUR actors??

    bandara Friday, 20 July 2012 06:21 AM

    so many of our SL actors have been awarded prestigious awards in India. If you are ignorant just speak to Malini Fonseka who was one such lucky receipent.

    asfsf, only if there was anything to appreciate- garbage you summoned it up

    Deepest sympathies to his family. His kathi Pathan song will
    be remembered for ages.

    buffaloa citizen Wednesday, 18 July 2012 11:28 AM

    Buddhism is not a religeon and one cannot bless anybody to attain Nibbana...no not even the Mahanayake's, as it directly reflects on a persons good karma, if any in this life.

    buffaloa citizen Wednesday, 18 July 2012 11:29 AM

    Great actor. My deepest sympathies to his family members.

    Ralph Anthony Kernr Thursday, 19 July 2012 06:51 AM
