The Kerala film industry plunged into sadness when the news came of ailing popular film director and scriptwriter KR Sachidanandan passing away at a hospital in Thrissur on Thursday night, film industry sources said.

Popularly known as Sachy, the 48-year-old was recovering from hip surgery when he suffered a cardiac arrest on Tuesday. He was admitted to the intensive care unit (ICU) of a leading hospital in Thrissur.

Sachy, a practising lawyer in the Kerala High Court, turned to the film industry first by jointly writing scripts before going solo. His second film as a director, ‘Ayyapanum Koshyum’, turned out to be the biggest grosser this year, till the lockdown kicked in.

His brief film career began in 2007, when he scripted the film, ‘Chocolate’, along with Sethu with whom he wrote four more scripts.

He wrote his first solo script for the Mohanlal starrer, ‘Run Baby Run’, in 2012 and went on to write another six scripts, which included ‘Anarkali’, his first film as a director, in 2015.
