Kollam: Godfrey died in a motorbike accident like in the climax of his short film which he acted. The accident took place near the location where the film was shot four years back.
The final moments of Chavara native Godfrey’s life has a lot of similarities to the short film in which he was the hero. The short film was titled as ‘The lovers’.
The theme of the film was related to the organ donation of the youth who dies in an accident. The shooting of the funeral ceremony in the film was arranged by Godfrey’s aunt, Prakkulam native Bijitha. While shooting the scene in which Godfrey was lying inside the coffin, she even cried loudly.
Godfrey’s bike hit against a wall after he visited his aunt at her house in Prakkulam. Since he lost a lot of blood while lying on the road, he died immediately after he was taken to the hospital. In another coincidence, Godfrey’s body was taken to the church by the same ambulance driver, Abdul Saleem, who took the hero’s body to the cemetery in the short film.

Abdul Saleem was the one who dressed the hero’s body in the short film. The other day, Saleem was urged by the family to dress Godfrey in the same clothes, which was used in the short film, causing people who had gathered there to break down uncontrolably.
