Kerala film industry plunged into sadness when the news came of ailing popular film director and script writer K.R. Sachidanandan passing away at a hospital in Thrissur on Thursday night.

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 a as director, in 2015.
On Wednesday, his close aides, including leading film personalities like actor Prithviraj and Biju Menon, and directors Renjith and B. Unnikrishnan, joined hands to see how the best medical care could be given to him and even expressed their desire to hire an air ambulance to shift him to another hospital.
