Sreeram, who hailed from Nannilam in Nagapattinam, was a popular martial art exponent in Chennai and was reportedly teaching on the terrace of his house when he suffered a fatal fall. He was 60 years old.
The late actor had taken up Krav Maga, the self-defence art form at the age of 45 years. The martial art form was developed by Israeli defence forces and reportedly he became a sought after instructor in the city.

Following his well-received debut in Sillu Karuppatti, he played several supporting character roles in films.
