48-year-old K R Sachidanandan, popularly known as Sachi suffered a cardiac attack on Tuesday and was put on life support. His latest film 'Ayyappanum Koshiyum' released in February was a big hit and also a major attraction over the OTT platforms in the lockdown months. Already, talks are on to remake it in all southern languages and Hindi too, if reports are to be believed.
As the news broke, the entire star cast of the film led by Prithviraj and Biju Menon who played the lead roles was in touch with the medical team and they have even told the doctors that if need be the sick director can be moved to a bigger hospital for better treatment.
With sudden demises rocking the Indian film industry beginning with Rishi Kapoor, Irrfan Khan and lately Sushant Singh Rajput, it is worrisome for the entertainment industry as it attempts to balance health and professional pressures at the same time.
