Actor Jayaram had a pet elephant named Kannan. In Kerala, it is usual for people to fend for elephants like they to do for cats and dogs. Jayaram and his elephant have appeared in few advertisements.
In a negative development, the elephant fell ill. A heartbroken Jayaram showed the elephant Kannan to doctor. But, the elephant Kannan died not responding to treatment.
Now, Jayaram seems to be very upset. Some people are consoling him by suggesting that he fends for another elephant. But still, Jayaram is plunged in grief as the elephant, which he treated as family member died.
