Chennai: AIADMK general secretary J. Jayalalithaa Tuesday said Tamil director K. Balachander made women-centric movies and would dwell on problems faced by them.

Condoling his death, Jayalalithaa in a statement issued here said the legendary director also made his mark in Hindi, Telugu and Kannada movies.

Jayalaltihaa said Balachander's death was a great loss to the movie world and the void created by his demise cannot be filled by anybody else.
