A Balu Mahendra assistant who has worked with director Hari in 13 films passed away today around 3.30 PM in his residence due to cardiac arrest. Hailing from Virudhunagar, he started his career with Balu Mahendra and then worked with director Maniratnam and KS Ravikumar.
There are many films to his credit like Thenali, Singam series, Vel and he was currently working in Saamy 2 starring Vikram and Keerthy Suresh. He has had a long association with director Hari. It is indeed a big loss to the crew and Tamil Cinema.
RIP cinematographer Priyan
