Music director Johnson, the two-time National award winner for music direction, passed away last evening in Chennai. Johnson suffered a cardiac arrest and was rushed to a private hospital where he was declared dead.
He had scored music for more than 300 Malayalam films and had won the National award for best background score for the films Ponthan Mada in 1994 and Sukrutham in 1995. Johnson also won the state awards five times in his career spanning over three decades.
We offer our heartfelt condolence to the bereaved family.
