The accident occurred near the Kozhikode University campus around 4.30 a.m. Saturday when the Innova car carrying him hit a divider. The driver of the car escaped with minor injuries.

Jagathy was on his way from Thrissur to Coorg in Karnataka to join the location of director Lenin Rajendran’s latest film.

Due to the accident, more than a dozen films in Malayalam which are under various stages of production will be affected.
