Prominent film personalities such as actor Prithviraj, Biju Menon, directors Renjith and B Unnikrishnan have come to the rescue of ailing writer-director KR Sachidanandan to make sure he receives the best medical aid.
The 48-year-old, popularly known as Sachi, is currently admitted to the intensive care unit of a leading hospital in Thrissur.
He had a cardiac arrest on June 16 and doctors treating him said that the next two days are very crucial. So close friends of Sachi got together and are now trying to connect with top experts to work with doctors treating him. They have also expressed their desire to hire an air ambulance to move him to another hospital, if the situation demands.
Director was recovering from a hip surgery when he suffered a cardiac arrest.
He was a practicing lawyer at the Kerala High Court, but turned to the film industry by first jointly writing scripts before going solo. His second film as a director, ‘Ayyappanum Koshiyum’, was one of the highest earning Indian films this year, until the lockdown kicked in.
