Late Malayalam director K. R. Sachidanandan, known in the film fraternity and among fans as Sachy, passed away in June last year due to cardiac arrest after complications following an earlier hip replacement surgery. The writer-turned-filmmaker worked on a number of acclaimed and successful box office ventures, which earned him a huge fan base in Kerala, including wide respect among those in Indian cinema. Having turned director in 2015 with Anarkali, Sachy made a huge impact with his second directorial, Ayyappanum Koshiyum, which came out only a few months before his demise last year. 

An action drama, Ayyappanum Koshiyum starring Prithviraj Sukumaran and Biju Menon, set the box office on fire, while also earning rave reviews from critics and film aficionados around the country. When the news of Sachy's death made headlines, it came as a massive blow for the Malayalam film industry, with many paying their tributes, including film lovers, who took to social media to express their condolences. Post his death last year, it was also revealed that a discussion had taken place between Sachy and Tamil superstar Ajith Kumar to collaborate on a venture, which eventually went on to be unfulfilled due to the unfortunate tragedy. 

Now, in a video, Siji Sachy, the wife of the late director in an interview to Malayalam media has confirmed that a conversation had indeed taken place between 'Thala' Ajith and her husband, who expressed his desire to work on a film together. Siji states that the phone conversation took place last year and Ajith had also offered to come meet Sachy in Kochi. Sachy, on the other hand, informed Ajith that he himself would pay him a visit when he comes to Chennai once the coronavirus pandemic subsided. She added that Ajith, who will next be seen in H. Vinoth's Valimai, was enthusiastic about collaborating with Sachy for a story which he had in mind and had disclosed a few details about it such as the story being set in Dhanushkodi and would have required a large-scale production. She added that Sachy called it his dream project and was hopeful of elevating him to the next level.
