The 87-year-old actor is survived by his wife, son and two daughters. The last rites of Kaikala will be performed at Mahaprasthanam crematorium in Jubilee Hills on Saturday.

He has received several awards, including the 2011 Raghupati Venkaiah Award, the 2017 Filmfare Awards for lifetime achievement award for Telugu cinema and the Andhra Pradesh government’s Nandi film awards.
Born on July 25, 1935, in Krishna district, Kaikala completed his primary education in Gudlavalleru and intermediate education and graduation in Vijayawada. Kaikala was first noticed by DL Narayana, who offered him a role in his film Supayi Koothuru directed by Changayya in 1959.
Though the film did not do well at the box office, his acting chops were noticed for his resemblance to NT Rama Rao. Following this, he was offered a role by NTR in his film Aproova Sahasra Siraccheda Chintamani in 1960 helmed by SD Lal.
