The New Indian Express notes that most of Sivakumar's neighbours complained of a foul smell on Thursday which compelled them to notify the Virugambakkam police. On arriving, the police had to break open the door and found Sivakumar dead in a seated position on a chair. According to the report, the police found no injury marks on him and suspect he might have had a cardiac arrest while watching television.

Sivakumar used to assist the well known director-cum-actor K Bhagyaraj before he started making his own films. After becoming independent, Sivakumar has directed two films, Rettai Jadai Vayasu, featuring Ajith, and Ayudha Poojai, starring Arjun.

His death has shocked the South Indian film industry, with many directors as well as producers offering their condolences on social media platforms.
