Atlas Ramachandran, a well-known businessman and president of the Atlas group and filmmaker, died in a Dubai hospital. He suffered from cardiac arrest.
Hailing from Madhukkara, Ramachandran started his career as a bank employee and later ventured into the gold business. He later successfully expanded his business into other sectors such as film production, real estate, and healthcare.
Even as a busy businessman, he was active in art and culture. He produced popular films like Vaisali, Dhanam, and Sukrutham. He also acted in films like Arabikkada, Malabar Wedding, and 2 Harihar Nagar. His company distributed films like Kouravar, Venkalam, and Innale.
In a setback to a successful career, he was jailed in Dubai in 2015 after a court convicted him of issuing bounced checks to two banks as collateral. He was released in 2018. According to family sources, after his release, he worked on a plan to repay all his loans and restart the business.
