Sachy, who was 48 years old, died of a cardiac arrest. He was undergoing treatment at a private hospital in Thrissur.

Sachy had undergone a hip replacement surgery and a few hours post the operation, he suffered a cardiac arrest, according to the hospital.

He directed Sukumaran-starrer Ayyappannum Koshiyum recently, which became a hit and won much applause for its unique narrative and portrait of a police officer played by actor Biju Menon.
