Popular Tamil filmmaker Rama Narayanan died in a private hospital here Sunday, a family source said.

“He was undergoing treatment in Singapore for kidney-related issues. He passed away after he failed to respond to the treatment. His body will be brought to Chennai Tuesday,” the family source said.

Rama Narayanan, who started his career as dialogue writer, had directed 126 films across multiple languages in over three decades.

Known for devotional and commercial comedy entertainers, he made his directorial debut with 1980 Tamil film Meenakshi and went on to direct several Tamil blockbusters such as Veeran, Sahadevan Mahadevan, Anjatha Singam and Kandha Kadamba Kathir Vela.

Some of his best devotional hit films include Aadi Velli, Durga,  Thai Poosam and Bhairavi. He was also known for including a lot of animal characters in most of these films.

Naryanan’s last film was last year’s Arya Surya. In the last few years, he had been distributing several Tamil films under his home banner Sri Thendral Films.

He had also served as the president of Tamil Nadu Film Producer Council for three consecutive terms.
