Kaka Radhakrishnan (c. 1925 – 14 June 2012) was an Indian film actor who acted in Tamil language films from the 1940s onwards. He is also notable for having introduced his childhood friend, Sivaji Ganesan, into films.
Kaka Radhakrishnan had the prefix "kaka" (crow) attached to his name after a role he played as a young boy, in a film made in his debut film Mangaiyakkarasi (1949). In the film, he literally climbed a tree to catch a crow and since has been associated with the crow, earning him the nickname.
Radhakrishnan died on 14 June 2012 following a brief illness.
