Director Sangeeth Sivan, the man behind Hindi films Kya Kool Hain Hum and Apna Sapna Money Money as well as the Malayalam hit Yoddha died after suffering cardiac arrest at the the Kokilaben Dhirubhai Ambani Hospital Mumbai hospital on  Wednesday. He was 65.

 

His cinematographer-brother Santosh Sivan confirmed Sangeeth's death to PTI via a WhatsApp message.

 

According to Santosh, Sangeeth was admitted to hospital and died after suffering cardiac arrest.

 

His last rites will be performed on Thursday at the Oshiwara cemetery at 4 pm, he added.

 

The eldest of three sons of filmmaker Sivan, Sangeeth made his debut in 1990 with the Malayalam movie Vyooham, starring Raghuvaran and Urvashi.

Down south, his directing credits include the popular 1992 release Yoddha, starring Malayalam superstar Mohanlal. He reunited with the actor for Gandharvam (1993) and Nirnayam (1995).

 

The 1998 film Zor, starring Sunny Deol and Sushmita Sen, marked his Hindi directorial debut. Chura Liyaa Hai Tumne, Ek – The Power of One, Click and Yamla Pagla Deewana 2 are among some of his Hindi directorial ventures.

 

Kerala Chief Minister Pinarayi Vijayan condoled the filmmaker's demise.

 

Actor Sunny Deol, who worked with Sangeeth on Zor and Yamla Pagla Deewana 2 said he was shocked to learn about his friend's death.

 

"Shocked to hear about the passing away of my dear friend @sangeethsivan, can’t believe that you are no longer amongst us, but you will always be with us in our hearts and memories. Om Shanti my friend, may your family get the strength to overcome your loss," he wrote alongside a series of on-set photos with the filmmaker.

 

Actor Riteish Deshmukh said he was saddened by Sangeeth's demise. They worked together on comedies such as Kya Kool Hai Hum and Apna Sapna Money Money.

 

"Deeply saddened and shocked to know that Sangeeth Sivan Sir is no more. As a newcomer all you want is someone to believe in you and take a chance.. can’t thank him enough for Kya Kool Hai Hum & Apna Sapna Money Money.

 

"Soft spoken, gentle and a wonderful human being. Am heart broken today, my deepest condolences to his family and loved ones, his wife, kids, brothers. I will miss you Da !!!!! And your infectious laughter!!! Rest in Glory…." Deshmukh wrote in an X post.

 

Deshmukh's Kya Kool Hain Hum co-star Tusshar Kapoor said he was at a loss for words upon learning of Sangeeth's passing.

 

"Don't have words to describe what I’m feeling right now…. A mentor of sorts, someone who introduced me to comedy with #KyakoolHainHum is no more! Sangeeth ji, I had the honour of working with you again recently but it’ll take me a long time to get over this sad news! RIP sir you will be missed! #SangeethSivan #gem," Kapoor wrote on X.

 

The actor most recently worked with Sangeeth in the upcoming horror comedy Kapkapii, also starring Shreyas Talpade.

 

Sangeeth also directed the 2019 web series Bhram, starring Kalki Koechlin.
