Playwright, actor and screenwriter Crazy Mohan has passed away after suffering a massive heart attack. 

Earlier today, actor Sathish, known for being a part of Crazy Mohan's drama troupe, took to social media and said that his 'mentor and legend' was dead. Twitter was quick to register its shock to the news.

When we contacted a source in their drama troupe, they confirmed that Crazy Mohan had indeed suffered a heart attack and had been admitted to a hospital, with doctors working hard to revive him. However, they were unsuccessful and the veteran playwright was officially declared dead at 2 pm.

Sathish, whose tweet lead to a Twitter maelstrom, deleted it soon after, but condolences began pouring in. Popular television and print news media also tweeted and deleted the news on their respective handles, before the official word came in.

Tributes to the legendary screenwriter are flowing in on social media, and Crazy Mohan's closest collaborator, Kamal Haasan, took to Twitter and shared a long, heartfelt message.
