Well known producer Chandrasekaran , best known for producing superhit films like Suriya’s Ghajini and Dhanush’s Sullan, passed away in Salem, his home town, on Monday.
The producer, who had been receiving treatment for Covid 19, succumbed to the virus on May 10 after treatment failed.
Apart from having produced films like Ghajini, which was then remade in Hindi with Aamir Khan in the lead, Chandrasekaran also made a number of other films like February 14, Killadi, and Sabari, which did not do as well in the box office.
Ironically, although Ghajini, which was directed by A R Murugadoss, made quite a lot of money, Chandrasekaran himself did not benefit much from the film.
The well known producer also owns a theatre in Salem.
