Kannada Superstar Yash became a popular name in Tamil Nadu with the buzz and the release of his mega budget venture, KGF. Yash turned 33 on January 8th, however, he had already clarified that he wouldn't be celebrating this year's birthday, as a mark of respect to the late Kannada legend, Ambareesh.

Actor Yash's fan sets himself on fire - commits suicide

On his birthday, a 26 year old ardent fan of Yash, named Ravi Raghuram, wanted to meet the star, wish him on his birthday and take a picture with him. Ravi had met Yash on his previous birthdays, however, this year he couldn't meet, as the actor was apparently held up in Mumbai for one of his personal works.

Being dejected by this, Ravi Raghuram made an unexpected move by setting himself on fire in front of Yash's house in Bangalore. The passersby and the security personnels at Yash's house rushed Ravi to the Victoria Hospital. After hearing about this incident, Yash made it a point to go and meet him at the hospital to wish him a speedy recovery. However, after treating him with medications, the doctors reportedly declared him to be dead as 80 % of his body sustained burns.

Talking to the media about this shocking incident, Yash expressed his disappointment. He was supposedly quoted as saying, "He has clicked selfies with me on my birthday. I’m sorry to say but this is not fandom and I don’t believe he can be a fan. I request my fans to never take such drastic steps. A few days before my birthday, I had put out a video saying I am not celebrating my birthday this year. This is very hurtful".
