Director KV Anand died on April 30 early morning due to a massive cardiac arrest. However, the latest reports suggest that Anand was diagnosed with Covid-19 and his mortal remains have been handed over to the Corporation officials for cremation. His body has been taken directly to Besant Nagar crematorium in Chennai. His family members were allowed to pay homage only for a short time.
Two weeks ago, KV Anand’s wife and daughter had tested positive for the novel coronavirus. Reportedly, they quarantined themselves and sought treatment from the doctor. In the meantime, the filmmaker developed breathlessness and chest pain.
He drove his car to a private hospital in Chennai to get it checked. Due to Covid-19 complications, he suffered a massive heart attack and breathed his last. KV Anand’s Covid-19 results turned out to be positive.
Since KV Anand contracted the virus, his mortal remains will not be handed over to his family members. The corporation officials will cremate his body at the Besant Nagar Crematorium in Chennai. His family members were allowed to pay homage to him for a few minutes.
Malayalam superstar Mohanlal, who worked with KV Anand in his last film Kaappaan, took to social media to pay his last respects to the filmmaker.
Here’s the post:
