Acharya Ravi, best known for directing Vijay's film Shahjahan, died of a heart attack early this morning.

Ravi served as Bala's assistant director before directing 'Acharya,' which earned him the prefix before his real name.

He was hospitalized at Meenakshi Mission Hospital in Madurai when his health deteriorated and had a cardiac arrest before taking his last breath. He will be cremated today.
