Veteran music director in the Malayalam film industry, MK Arjunan, fondly called Arjunan Master, has passed away at his residence in Palluruthy, Kochi. He was 84.

In an illustrious career spanning over five decades, Arjunan scored music for more than 500 songs in over 200 Malayalam films. He also worked extensively in plays.

As per a report, Arjunan made his debut as a composer in Karuthapurnami in 1968. He was known for his association with lyricist Sreekumaran Thampi, with whom he composed the music for nearly 50 films, emerging as the most prolific composer-lyricist partnership in the Malayalam film industry.

Arjunan is also said to have given AR Rahman his first break in 1981 when the latter stepped into the music world as a keyboard player for Malayalam movie – Adima Changala. Arjunan was also a close friend of Rahman’s father RK Shekhar.

Sharing the sad news of Arjunan’s demise, Resul Pookutty tweeted, “My heartfelt condolences …. many of your tunes are etched in my memory, your artistry has shaped up many generations of music lovers! Your absence is a vacuum…. RIP (sic).”
