Veteran Director KSR Das is no more

Veteran director KSR Das who has directed more than 100 movies has breathed his last today. He is known for introducing Hollywood action to Telugu films including making the first cowboy film of South.
 
Das, aged 76, is ailing from heart problem and lung related infection from a long time before succumbing to it at Chennai Apollo Hospital. He directed Telugu, Kannada, Tamil and Hindi movies, including hit movies like Mosagaallaku Mosagadu, Gudachari 116 and Yugandhar. Working with almost all the top stars of his time including NTR, Krishna, Shoban Babu, Chiranjeevi and Rajnikanth, he carved a niche for himself for his trendsetting chase sequences and hair rising sentiment scenes. He holds a record for directing Krishna in more than 30 movies. No doubt, Telugu Film Industry has lost one more jewel from its crown.
 
Gulte.com expresses deep condolence to his family. May his soul rest in peace.
