Comforting Words From Director J. Mahendran's Son
By Vivek Raj [ January 22, 2018 ]
One of the few filmmakers, J. Mahendran had established himself as a thinker of films during the 1970s.
He’s known predominantly for making Mullum Malarum with 'Superstar' Rajinikanth. It must be noted the two shared the common stage last month when the veteran actor met fans prior to his entry into politics.
Mahendran, aged 78, was admitted at the Meenakshi Hospital in Pudukottai yesterday (January 21) after he had experienced discomfort and breathing problems while he was resting in his hotel room. After being put in the ICU for monitoring, the iconic filmmaker is said to be recovering well. His son, John Mahendran, also a director, took to his Twitter page to keep fans informed on the progress of his father’s health in successive tweets.
