Kannan Rangaswamy, director of the thriller film Dhayam, died today at a hospital in Sriperumbudur. He was 29. The director had suffered a heart attack recently.
Satish Selvam, music director of Dhayam and also a close friend of Kannan, told Silverscreen, “He was admitted in the hospital last month due to a sudden heart attack. That was his first ever attack. For the past 40 days he was in the hospital for the treatment. Last 15 days he went into a coma and died this morning at 5 AM in the hospital. I’m shattered as I have lost my very dear friend and a good human being. He was so young and wasn’t so old to die this early.”
Kannan hailed from Pondicherry and Dhayam was his first film, which was released in March this year.
