At the age of 92, renowned Malayalam cinema producer and distributor PKR Pillai passed away on Tuesday. He was the financier of several films that established the career of superstar Mohanlal, including Amrutham Gamaya (1987), Chithram (1988), Vandanam (1989), Kizhakkunarum Pakshi (1991), and Aham (1992).

At the age of 92, KR Pillai passed away on Tuesday in Kerala. In an homage to the veteran, actor Mohanlal, who had collaborated with him on films like Chithram, Vandanam, and Arahatha, referred to him as "brother" and said that his name should be written in golden letters in Malayalam cinema

 Additionally involved in politics, Pillai was a member of the Indian National Congress

In 1984, PK Ramachandran Pillai made his debut in the movie business by directing Vepraalam, which had Sukumari, Adoor Bhasi, Lakshmi, and Menaka in the key roles.

One of the highest-grossing Malayalam movies at the time, it included Mohanlal, Ranjini, Nedumudi Venu, Lissy, Poornam Viswanathan, Sreenivasan, MG Soman, and Sukumari in it. Chithram was directed by Priyadarshan and featured Mohanlal, Ranjini, MG Soman, Sukumari, and Ranjini. Later, four language remakes of the movie appeared: Alludugaru in Telugu, Pyar Hua Chori Chori in Hindi, Rayaru Bandaru Mavana Manege in Kannada, and Engirundho Vandhan in Tamil.

Ailments associated with aging caused PKR Pillai's death. The 2002 movie Pranayamanithooval served as his final effort as a producer. Mohanlal offered his respects via a lengthy Malayalam post on Facebook.

Dear Pillachettan, who is equal to my older brother, has passed away, according to the translation of the post. When I was in Chennai for the filming of Malaikottai Valiban, I learned the tragic news. In the annals of Malayalam cinema, the name PKR Pillai is inscribed in gold. He was a generous man who supported many artists, including me, by creating a number of excellent movies that will live on foreverHow many romantic moments I have with Pillachetan come to me right now. One cannot overstate Pillachettan's affection and support for my development as an actor. It has been really important. A heartfelt tribute to the legendary figure in Malayalam film.
