We fondly remember Ambareesh as an Indian actor, media personality and politician from the state of Karnataka. Ambareesh's acting career commenced with a brief phase of portraying antagonistic and supporting characters. He established himself as a lead actor in a number of commercially successful films and still continues to hold a matinee idol status in Karnataka. Ambareesh was a three-time member of the Lok Sabha, the lower house of the Indian Parliament representing Mandya first from Janata Dal and the latter two times from the Indian National Congress, a member of which he remained till his death.
Ambareesh was an ardent supporter of Samarthanam and encouraged its initiatives. We are deeply grateful for his patronage. He has actively participated in similar events and constantly motivated us and remained a great source of strength for all of us.
