Film-maker Sangeeth Sivan breathed his last on May 8.

The Kya Kool Hai Hum director was undergoing treatment for urinary infection at the Kokilaben Hospital in Mumbai. On Wednesday, he suffered a cardiac arrest, his brother Sanjeev Sivan confirmed.

After learning about the film-maker's death, Sunny Deol, who worked with Sangeeth Sivan in Yamla Pagla Deewana 2, took to X and paid his condolences.

'Shocked to hear about the passing away of my dear friend @sangeethsivan, can't believe that you are no longer amongst us, but you will always be with us in our hearts and memories. Om Shanti my friend may your family get the strength to overcome your loss,' Sunny wrote.
