Actor Kamal Haasan's elder brother Chandra Haasan passed way at his daughter Anu Haasan's house in London on Saturday night following a massive cardiac arrest.

Chandrahasan who was a lawyer by profession, was associated with the home production banner of Raaj Kamal Films International. Though he was not interested in acting, his daughter Anu Haasan was well interested in acting.

Earlier, in January this year, Chandrahasan's wife Geethamani had also passed away at the age of 73.

The South Indian Film Artistes Association, also called as 'Nadigar Sangam'condoled the death of Chandra Haasan and offered its condolences to the bereavedfamily members. He played a crucial roles in holding talks with Muslim groups in the run up to the release of Kamal's film Vishwaroopam in 2013. It was later released with a few cuts.

Ulaganayagan has two elder brothers - Charu Haasan (father of actor Suhasini) and Chandrahasan. Chandrahasan is survived by his daughter actor and TV host Anu Hasan. We can understand how deeply his brother's demise has affected Kamal. "I did not even fulfill half of the dreams he saw for me", read a rough translation of Kamal's tweet, which was written in Tamil.
