Arun made his debut with 4G which starred GV Prakash and Gayathri Suresh. The film was completed a couple of years ago but was delayed for unknown reasons. GV Prakash express his condolences in his mother tongue. His tweet closely translated to: “I am deeply saddened by the demise of my dear friend Venkat Pakkar, who always brims with positivity. My deep condolences to his friends and family members. I will pray to the almighty for his soul to rest in peace.” Have a look at his tweet here:
எப்போதும் நட்போடும் நம்பிக்கையோடும் பழகும் ஒரு இனிய சகோதரன் என் இயக்குனர் வெங்கட் பாக்கர் சாலை விபத்தில் மரணமடைந்த செய்தி கேட்டு மிகுந்த துயருற்றேன்…
அவரை இழந்து வாடும் உறவினர்களுக்கும் நண்பர்களுக்கும் என் ஆழ்ந்த இரங்கல்..

4G was supposed to be the comeback of Suresh Menon in Tamil films but things didn’t pan out it seems.
Rest in peace, Arun.
