Film director K. Subhash, who directed over 20 movies in Tamil and was involved in several Bollywood films, died on Wednesday morning. He was 57 and had been admitted to a hospital in the city following health complications. He is survived by his wife and two daughters.

Subhash, the son of R. Krishnan, who was a part of the Krishnan-Panju filmmaker duo, started his career by assisting the duo in several projects. He made his directorial debut in 1988 with the movie Kaliyugam and went on to direct movies such as Bramma , starring Sathyaraj, Ajith-starrer Pavithra and Abhimanyu and Sabhaash starring Parthiepan. One of his most successful movies was Sathriyan , starring Vijayakant in the role of an honest police officer, which was released in 1990 and went on to become a huge success. Recently, he had made a foray into Bollywood and was the story writer for Chennai Express and Housefull 3 featuring an ensemble cast, which released earlier this year. G. Dhananjayan, founder of the Blue Ocean Film and Television Academy (BOFTA), said that he had interacted with Subhash a month ago for a documentary he was making on Krishnan-Panju.

The cremation will take place at 11 a.m. at the Nungambakkam crematorium.
