Yakshagana legend Gopalakrishna Bhat passes away

Prominent Yakshagana artiste Gopalakrishna Bhat(88) passed away on Tuesday around 2.30 pm at a private hospital in Kasaragod.

Gopalakrishna Bhat, who had been popularly known as 'Sheni', was instrumental in analysing characters from the Puranas and presenting them in a new perspective. Hence, Bhat was also known as the 'Kulapati of yakshagana'.

Gopalakrishna Bhat was a real legend as he could attract people towards Yakshagana through the use of thought provoking dialogues.
