Drishyam Director Nishikant Kamat Dies At 50

Nishikant Kamat has died in a Hyderabad hospital. Mr Kamat, 50, was suffering from chronic liver disease.

A bulletin from AIG Hospitals this morning said that Nishikant Kamat was “currently on ventilator support and in critical condition.”

The hospital a week ago had said the filmmaker was “critical but stable.” The statement from the hospital read: “He has been suffering with chronic liver disease and other infections. He is in the intensive care unit for monitoring under the supervision of a multidisciplinary team of senior consultants, Hepatologists, Critical Care and others.”

Nishikant Kamat was best-known for directing the Hindi remake of Malayalam hit Drishyam – the remake starred Ajay Devgn and Tabu.
