TE Kishore, who is known for his extra ordinary editing skills is now critical in a private hospital in Vadapalani, Chennai. Kishore, who recently won the National Film Award under Best Editing category for Aadukalam was at work when he collapsed.
Sources close to the editor have revealed that Kishore was inside the editing room discussing some important points along with the Aadukalam director Vetrimaran for their next film when he suddenly fainted.
After being rushed to the hospital, it was found out that Kishore had a clot in his brain and thus had to undergo an operation immediately. Unfortunately, he has been in coma for the past two days and has not regained consciousness.
Kishore began his career with the 2009 thriller Eeram for which he was nominated by Vijay Awards for Best Editor. He then went on to work in Aadukalam, Radha Mohan's Payanam, Engeyum Eppodhum, Kanchana, Bala's Paradesi, Ethir Neechal, Nedunchaalai and many more hit movies.
He has worked in a few Telugu and Kannada films as well. He has also worked in more than 70 Tamil, Telugu and Hindi films as an assistant editor under famed editors B Lenin and VT Vijayan before making his debut as an independent editor.
Aged 36, TE Kishore shot to fame with his very first film and was truly on the right path on achieving something substantial. Hopefully, he recovers soon and gets back to the editing table to create the kind of magic he had been creating all these days with a pair of virtual scissors.
