Playwright, actor and screenwriter Crazy Mohan died in Chennai today afternoon after suffering a massive heart attack.
Mohan qualified as a mechanical engineer at the College of Engineering, Guindy, in the 1970s. But his calling was elsewhere and he started his own drama troupe Crazy Creations in 1979.
Several plays and films followed, which include some hilarious comic sequences in Tamil films in partnership with Kamal Haasan.
After writing for other productions, Mohan decided to start his own troupe and founded Crazy Creations in 1979. The troupe has since created over 30 plays with original scripts and staged over 6,500 shows all over India and abroad.
His play ‘Chocolate Krishna’ had been staged 500 times within three years. His brother Maadhu Balaji, who is an actor, plays the hero in all his dramas.
