The veteran photographer and cinematographer, Sivan has passed away due to a Cardiac Arrest on Thursday, 24th June, morning. The national award-winning cinematographer and director took his last breath at his home in  Thiruvananthapuram at the age of 89.

He started the 'Sivan Studios' at Thiruvananthapuram Statue junction in 1959 and rose to fame for his work in the film titled Chemeen. He brought popular and inspiring movies like Abhayam, Yagam, Kochu Kochu Mohangal, Kilivathil, Keshu, Oru Yathra to the Malayalam industry and made everyone proud and respect him by winning the national award three times.

Difficult to imagine a world without you but we will continue to trudge the path you have paved for us, safe in the knowledge that you would be guiding us from your place in the clouds & stars. Forever indebted."

Sivan was the first government press photographer in Travancore and worked his way up by himself and became one of the best and most respected cinematographers and directors in the Malayalam film industry.
