Tamil comedian and television anchor Chitti Babu aka Sajjadh Adeebh died in a private hospital here Friday. He was 49.

"He was admitted to Royapettah Government Hospital on Wednesday after he fell unconscious due to high diabetes in his house. On Thursday, he slipped into coma and never regained consciousness. He passed away this evening," a family source told IANS.

Chitti Babu underwent a bypass surgery recently.

"Even though he worked in a few films in the last two years, he couldn't work as actively as before because of the bypass surgery," the source added.

He started his career as a television anchor of a comedy show. In 2002, he made his cinematic debut with Tamil romantic-drama "Five Star".

He has starred in films such as "Ottran", "Dhool" and "Sivakasi". His last film "Madha Gadha Raja" is awaiting release.

Chitti Babu is survived by his wife and son.
