    It will be a grate lost to Sri Lankan music and film industry. He was the one who kept the film music going after the grate H.R. Jothipala passed a way. The song “AMMA PEW KIRI SUWANDIN ME LOWA METHARAM HADA UNE” tells all about him what won him awards. The voice matched many actors. “AADARA SEENUWA” the song of love for decades. He left all this memories with us. We thank you sir for entreating us with your golden voice. May you Rest in Peace – Hassan Abu Dhabi

    Malkanthi, you should not say such things in a public forum such as this one.
