Siddique Ismail, a legendary film director, died just days after turning 69.

After suffering a heart attack on Sunday and being admitted to a private hospital in Kochi, India, Ismail died of cardiac arrest.

He’d been in the hospital since early July, being treated for pneumonia and other respiratory ailments.

The filmmaker was allegedly in critical condition before passing away.

He directed scores of films after making his directorial debut with “Ramji Rao Speaking” in 1989.

Ismail made popular Hindi films such as “Friends”, “Kaavalan”, “Englal Anna” and other Tamil memes and pop culture.

He also acted in a few films and television shows, winning the Mammootty Best Actor Award for his portrayal of a judge in “Asianet”.
