It turns out to be much disappointing news to the entire world of cinema as veteran filmmaker K. Balachander passed away before few minutes at a private hospital giving up his private battle with prolonged illness. His wide span of years of in Tamil cinema running up to 45 years commenced in 1965 with his maiden debut Neer Kumizhi…. Turning the global spotlights on with his directorial prowess, heavy punch of unconventional stories and hitting straight on reality grounds ennobled him as a maverick filmmaker of all times. He holds some of the most prestigious honours like Kalaimamani, Padma Shri, Dadasaheb Phalke Award and ANR National Award.
The multi-faceted versatile personality has endowed the entire Indian cinema with the greatest pillars like Superstar Rajnikanth and Ulaga Nayagan Kamal Haasan.
