    Default Actors and Actress Profile


    Name: Mohan Lal
    Date of birth: May 21st, 1960
    Family: Father: Viswanathan Nair, Mother: Santhakumari, Brother: Pyare Lal (died), Wife: Suchitra, Children: Pranav, Vismaya
    Debut Film: Manjil Virinja Pookkal (Malayalam)

    Mohanlal was born on May 21, 1960(which incidentally makes him a Taurean, and he seems to fit the bill) in Pathanamthitta district of Kerala State (India) to Sri Viswanathan Nair and Smt. Santhakumari. He also had an elder brother named Pyare Lal. In his mother's own words, 'quite, a very quite child' is how we can characterize young Mohanlal.

    He did his schooling from Mudavanmukal School and Model School (Thiruvananthapuram) and completed his BCom from M.G. College (Thiruvananthapuram). Incidentally, he knows famous director and his personal good friend Priyadarsan(with whom he has worked in the maximum no. of films -27) from childhood. Though not the best of friends at the time (Priyan recalls them fighting over the same girls), they had one common passion that brought them together-Cinema. Priyadarsan still fondly remembers the hours they'd spend together in the college canteen discussing cinema.

    Mohanlal and his mother

    It is a little known fact that Mohanlal won a Best Actor Award when in the sixth standard in school, an award usually won only by the people from tenth standard. His genuine interest led him and his friends to establish a company named 'Bharath Cine Group'. On September 3, 1978 they began shooting for 'Thiranottam'. The team included Suresh Kumar, Unni, Priyadarsan, S Kumar, Ashok Kumar among others. Mohanlal played the role of a mentally challenged servant in the film. The location for shooting was in and around Mohanlal's house at Mudavanmukal and Suresh's house. Even after tiding over financial problems, the film ran into rough weather with the Censor Board and was never released.

    But this setback did little to sway the hold of deep love for acting. Even when in college, he went with friends to Chennai (then Madras)-one of the melting pots for South Indian Film Industry-in search of a job as an actor. They occupied Room No 3 of the famous Swamy's lodge. This is when they came across an ad in the Malayala Manorama daily looking for a youngster for a role in a film. Unhappy with the way he looked in photograph, he declined from applying. But Suresh, aware of his natural talent, secretly sent his photograph anyway. Mohanlal received a telegram the next day and very soon was displaying his skills in front of an interview panel comprising of the likes of Fazil, Sibi Malayil and Jijo. As a result, he received the role of the villain in Fazil's 'Manyil Virinya Pookal'.

    Mohanlal's family old picture

    This began his fulltime career as an actor in Malayalam films. A workhorse, he would at one time have 35-40 releases in a year. His major break came in 1986 with the all-time hit 'Rajavinde Makan'. This was also the year when he married Suchitra, daughter of a former actor of Tamil films, Balaji.

    He won his first State Award for the film T .P. Balagopal M.A (1986). He has won 4 of them to date. He won his first Filmfare Award for the film Sanmasullavarkku Samadhaanam (1986). He has won 5 Filmfare Awards to date. He won his first National Best Actor Award for the film Kireedam released in 1989-albeit the jury award. Later he won Best Actor National Awards for Bharatham (1991) and Vaanaprastham (1999). Apart from this, he has won numerous awards over the years for various films.

    The hallmark of Mohanlal's acting is the spontaneity of performance. It is quite a well-known fact that he doesn't seriously rehearse or prepare for his roles. He just becomes the character he is playing for the duration between 'Action' and 'Cut'. So it is not uncommon to hear a reply like 'I don't know' from him when asked about how he carries out something like not blinking when he turns mentally retarded in the film 'Thalavattam', a characteristic even he wasn't aware of at the time; about how he gets the nuances so very right. In his own words " If you study it and then act the role, everything will flounder. Good acting just happens. And personally I don't think one needs to work on the character unless one plays a historical character." For those in front of the screen (the audience), the best thing about Mohanlal is his versatility. It seems he can play absolutely any role under the sun convincingly. And unlike many versatile actors who have traded intensity owing to their versatility, Mohanlal can be most intense if the role demands, the proof being his performances in the numerous action films he's worked in. Priyadarsan calls him the best actor India has ever produced.

    Mohanlal established Pranavam Arts to be able to produce the kind of films he had an intense desire to create. And 'Beautiful' is the least we can say to describe some of his creations. His film 'Kaalapani', released in 1995, won 5 National and 7 State Awards. Another splendid creation, 'Vaanaprastham', released in 1999 won the National Award for Best Film.

    In recent years, he has concentrated on working on one film at a time to devote more to quality. In his own words, he's more concerned about whether the script is a good one or not rather than whether the movie will be a big hit or not. A gentle human, he'd do films for friends regardless of the kind of project and the monetary returns. His jovial behaviour with cast and crew has endeared him to one and all.

    Mohanlal's innate character is guided by the principle of lack of attachment. He was witness to an unfortunate incident wherein an actor with whom he was performing suddenly collapsed to death in front of him. This incident created a deep impact on his attitude to life. It explains his outlook to life and the reason he has now set his priorities the way he has.

    Initially averse to working in Tamil films (his reason being 'too much masala' in them), he has now been part of quite a few, including the controversial 'Iruvar' loosely based on the life of Tamil actor and former Chief Minister of Tamil Nadu M.G.R. directed by the very famous director Mani Ratnam. He commented after the making "Hereafter, I will never work with a man of whom I am a fan." The reason being he often forgot to say 'Cut' while shooting!!!

    His commitment to his roles is seen in his involvement during the making of the film. It is a well-known fact that he learnt Bharatnatyam for his role in 'Kamaladalam' and learnt 'Kathakali' for his role in 'Vaanaprastham'. Though, typical of this simple and humble human, he often downplays his efforts pointing that it is nothing in comparison to what the masters of the art have put in during years of practice.

    Leading a contented life in Chennai (Tamil Nadu) with his wife and two children (Pranavam and Vismaya), he leads a life convinced that there is a force above guiding him through life to whom he gives credits for all his achievements.

    We mortals can only wait and pray to continue to be witnesses to the performance of his art while he continues to leave footprints on the sands of time through the medium of cinema.

    Default Mammootty


    Mammootty as Muhammed Kutty at Chempu near Vaikom, Kottayam (district, Kerala) is a popular Indian film actor. He has acted in more than 300 films, which is most of them in Malayalam cinema. He is the recipient of 4 National film awards for Best Actor, five State awards and 5 Film fare awards in the “best actor” category. He was awarded the Padma Shri by the Government of India in 1998 and he is called as the Super Star of Malayalam Cinema along with Mohanlal. Mammootty is rated as one of the talented actors in Indian film industry. He is also the current Chairman of TV channel Kairali. He was born to Ismail (an agriculturist) and Fatima (a homemaker). Mammootty has two younger brothers, Ibrahim and Zakariah; and three sisters, Ameena, Sauda and Shafina. Mammootty received his education from Maharaja’s College, Ernakulam and then studied law at Ernakulam Government Law College. It was during his days at Maharajah’s that Mammootty got his first role in Anubhavangal Paalichakal (1971). He practised as a lawyer in Manjeri, Kerala for two years. He got married in 1980 to his wife, Sulfath, and has a daughter, Surmi and a son, Dulquar Salman.

    Mammootty first film as an actor, Devalokam (World of Gods), was not released in theatres. Famous writer and auteur M. T. Vasudevan Nair and Film director K. G. George played an important part in his career. Mammootty’s talent was noticed in films like Vilkanundu Swapnangal directed by M T Vasudevan Nair and films like Mela and Yavanika, by K.G George.
    One thing that sets him apart from his contemporaries is the fact that from the beginning itself, he has been able to treat both art-house cinema and commercial potboilers with ease. He made his mark during the early period of his career itself by enacting roles in films of stalwarts like M. T. Vasudevan Nair, K.G. George, Padmarajan, P.N. Menon, and Bharathan. Later on his talent was utilized by internationally renowned directors like Adoor Gopalakrishnan, T. V. Chandran, and Pavithran. Mammootty was a regular in movies of Harikumar, Mohan, et al. The movies by M.T. Vasudevan Nair and Padmarajan, arguably among the best of Malayalam writer-directors, widened Mammootty’s acting horizon.
    It may be mentioned that two of M.T. Vasudevan’s movies which bear his autobiographical elements were enacted by Mammootty - Aksharangal and Sukrutham (Harikumar).
    The film New Delhi, directed by Joshy, was a turning point in his career and the film was based on the novel, “The Almighty” by Irving Wallace. The hero’s portrayal of a victimized journalist, who systematically took revenge on politicians who beguiled him, was noticed and well accepted well by the masses. By then he had achieved superstardom.
    His, Oru CBI Diary kurippu, was also a major landmark in the history of Malayalam Cinema. It brought to fore a new concept of an investigative thriller, fresh presentation of politicians and above all a refreshing idea of the hero.The film went on to create box-office history in Kerala.

    Following the success of the first CBI film three more murder mysteries sequels were produced with the same cast of characters: Jaagrutha (1989), Sethurama Iyer CBI (2004) and Nerariyan C.B.I (2005, all directed by K Madhu, with Mammootty as Sethurama Iyer, an efficient but unassuming CBI officer.
    He touched the pinnacle of his career in [[Oru Vadakkan Veeragatha]] (roughly translated as ‘A northern heroic folklore’), again an M. T. Vasudevan Nair creation. His depiction of a Chekavan of distinguished velour but vilified by circumstances won him the top honors of the country, National Award for best acting. His histrionics matched the literary genius of M. T. in each and every minute detail.
    It was his acting talent, coupled with his willingness to go to any extent to rationally portray the roles that enabled him to act in both offbeat and commercial movies.
    He became almost a regular face in Adoor Gopalakrishnan’s films. Mammootty starred in three of his movies, Anantharam(’Thenceforth’), Mathilukal(’Walls’) and Vidheyan (’The Servile’) and the easiness with which he illustrated on screen the protagonist in Mathilukkal(based on Mathilukal, a novel by the Malayalam literary genius Vaikom Muhammad Basheer) was also instrumental in getting him his first National Award for Best Actor. His performance in two commercially off-beat movies, Ponthan Mada by TV Chandran, and Adoor Gopalakrishnan’s Vidheyan won him the award for the second time. His performance in “Ambedkar”, an English movie by Jabbar Patel, won him the National award for a third time. Mammootty is also a recipient of Padma Shri, one of the highest civilian awards in India.
    Mammootty had briefly crossed the boundaries of Malayalam cinema and acted in Tamil, Telugu, and Hindi films. Though he proved that only a moderate success in Tamil after Mani Ratnam’s Thalapathi, his fan following is on par with other Tamil film stars. Mammootty’s notable successes in Tamil include Anandam by Linguswamy and Kandukondain Kandukondain by Rajiv Menon. Unfortunationaly however, his maiden Hindi film, Dhartiputra went unnoticed. Mammootty, nonetheless made his presence felt on the national level with the biographical film on Dr. Baba Saheb Ambedkar Directed by Jabbar Patel.
    All though he has been criticised as unable to portray comic roles, his latest movies Rajamanikyam, Thommanum Makkalum, and Thuruppugulan gave a fitting reply to critics. He, though a hugely popular star, is an exception in Indian films where dancing skills have to be a necessary part of an actor’s repertoire but the emotion and the depth that he lends to his characters makes him a well revered actor and makes up for his shortcomings.

    Actor Surya Profile

    None expected, indeed the actor himself. Saravanan Sivakumar completing his graduation at Loyola College never knew that he would make it so bigger in tinsel town.

    Awards: Kalaimamani Award (2005), Filmfare Best Award (2003 and 2004)

    Turning Point: Nanda, Pithamaghan

    Though Saravanan had a sound knowledge about film due to his father's presence, he had no plans to step into film industry. As his close friends say, 'We were completely astonished to hear that Saravanan is going to make his debut in Tamil film industry'. First, he joined a garments factory as a merchandizing manager. For everyone's surprise, his first month salary was Rs. 1000/- and he gifted his mom with a saree.

    Directors Mani Rathnam and Vasanth had just met him at an occasion and called forth a photo shoot, which he took up casually. Well, a particular snapshot was about him putting his around Simran that he felt shy…. Then as he made his debut with 'Nerukku Ner', he happened to be the uprising star.


    His debut Film Nerrukku Ner was released in 1997. Directed by Vasanth, he teamed up with his college mate Actor Vijay. Actress Simran paired up with him. The very next year beginning had his film 'Kadhale Nimmadhi' where he paired up with Actor Murali. The film was released in January 1998. During the same year, his film 'Sandhipoma' was released in June. The very next year in 1999, 'Periyanna' had him featured alongside with Actor Vijayakanth. Again, Surya was casted by Director Vasanth in his 'Poovellam Kettupar' and it was the same film where Jyothika was introduced. Indeed, Director Vasanth was the matchmaker for both of them miraculously. Again, Surya-Jyothika paired up for 'Uyirile Kalandhadhu' that hit the screens where his father Sivakumar donned the same role.

    Again, on Jan 14, 2001 both Surya and Vijay paired up for 'Friends' directed by Siddique. The film happened to the most stunning comedy entertainer with emotional factors. The same year Surya witnessed the greatest turning point in his career. Yeah! It was all about Bala offering him to perform the lead role of a different shade in his 'Nandha'. The film won him the biggest laurels across the globe as hit the screens on November 14, 2001. It was a no turning back situation for the actor… His next film 'Unnai Ninaithu' again featured Surya together with Laila (she was the heroine in Bala's 'Nandha'). The film directed by Vikraman had Sneha too in the female lead. It was a poignant touch of romance and won awards for a good entertainer film. A couple of months later, his another film 'Sree' was released where he played an action packed mass hero role and indeed it turned to be a flop movie. During the yearend, his another film 'Mounam Pesiyadhe' was released on Dec 14, 2002. Director Ameer made his debut directorial with this film. The film introduced Trisha to the film industry and Laila performed a cameo role.

    And here comes the most top-notching films from Surya where every piece turned to be great grosser at box office.

    'Kaakha Kaakha' directed by Gowtham Menon had again made Surya, Jyothika to pair and this was the moment when both of them became so closer. The film was released on August 1st, 2009 and within couple of months for Diwali another magnum opus 'Pithamaghan' was released for Diwali. Directed by Bala, the film had Surya and Vikram and won several awards…

    On May 6, 2004, 'Perazhagan' had Surya and Jyothika playing dual roles. During the same month, another film 'Aayitha Ezhuthu' directed by Mani Rathnam was released on May 21, 2004…. The film had Madhavan, Trisha, Meera Jasmine, and Siddarth together in lead role.

    And nearly for a year, he didn't take up any projects….

    On March 2005, 'Maayavi' directed by Bala's assistant Singam Puli had Surya and Jyothika pairing up together…. The same year had yet another blockbuster 'Ghajini' directed by Murugadoss hitting screens on September 2005. Year end was another commercial entertainer 'Aaru' releasing.

    'Sillunu Oru Kadhal' directed by Gowtham's assistant Krishna featured Surya and Jyothika in lead role. The film was released on September 8, 2006. He took a long break after his marriage and joined hands with Director Hari for 'Vel' releasing in November 9, 2007. Again after a year, on November 14, 2008 his magnum opus 'Vaaranam Aayiram' was released. The directed by Gowtham Menon had Sameera Reddy, Divya Spandana and Simran in lead roles. A

    His forthcoming film 'Ayan' is ready to hit the screens where he pairs up with Thamannah and directed by K.V. Anand. Also, he has started shooting for K.S. Ravi Kumar's 'Aadhavan'. Meanwhile, he has signed up for another films 'Singam' directed by Hari and 'Mugamudi' that will have Mysskin handling direction…

    Family life…

    Surya isn't just a perfect actor, but a great family man too. Being an obedient son, he won his parents' wish in marrying Actress Jyothika. The marriage took place on September 11, 2006. The following year, they were gifted with a beautiful daughter 'Diya'. His sister Brindha was married first before his nuptials. His brother Karthi made his debut in 'Paruthiveeran' and it was scoring triple century on debut match…

    Prithviraj Profile

    Prithviraj Sukumaran born October 16, 1982 in Trivandrum, Kerala, India) is an Indian film actor. He made his debut in 2002 with the critically acclaimed Malayalam film Nandanam, and has since established himself in Malayalam cinema through a variety of roles in films such as Ananthabhadram, Chocolate, Vaasthavam, Classmates, Thirakkatha and Thalappavu. He has also made strides in Tamil cinema with hits like Kana Kandaen, Parijatham and Mozhi. Prithviraj was introduced to cinema by Renjith who cast him in his directorial debut film Nandanam. After this he was flooded with offers and was able to appear in films directed by the leading figures of Malayalam film industry such as Lohithadas, Vinayan, Kamal and Bhadran. He was noted for his performances in Stop Violence and Swapnakoodu, films that did well at the box-office. Shyamaprasad, who cast him in lead role in his much acclaimed film Akale, comments that Prithviraj's advantages are his talent and intelligence irrespective of his box office successes. He was critically acclaimed for the portrayal of Sub Inspector Solomon Joseph in Vargam. In this film his character had to go through a wide range of emotions. In the first half of the film he was the corrupt and malicious Inspector, in the second half he falls victim to his arrogance and repents and tries to turn a new leaf.

    In 2006, Lal Jose\'s Classmates was released and it turned out to be one of the biggest blockbusters in Malayalam cinema. The film had an ensemble cast consisting of Jayasurya, Narain, Indrajith and Kavya Madhavan. After Vargam, Prithviraj acted in another film Vaasthavam with the same director, M. Padmakumar. It was a hard hitting film in which Prithviraj again got noticed for his intense acting. The role fetched him the Kerala State Award for Best Actor for 2006, and in the process Prithvi became the youngest actor to win the award. In 2007, his film Chocolate directed by Shafi received glowing reviews. His performance in the film has been praised as contributing to the success of the film. In 2008, he starred in Thalappavu directed by Madhupal and Thirakkatha directed by Renjith, in which he took up roles which serve as pivotal characters. One of the reviews of Thalappavu describes it as a film which is truly the coming-of-age film for Prithviraj the actor and that there is a spartan dignity that he brings into his commanding portrayal of Naxalite Joseph. Thirakkatha also received widespread praises from the reviewers.

    Prithviraj made his Tamil debut as the villain in Kana Kandaen in 2005. His performance as the handsome, sophisticated and suave villain grabbed quick attention and was praised for his unconventional portrayal of the character. Soon he got an opportunity to act under the direction of Bhagyaraj in the film Parijatham. Bhagyaraj has said in an interview that he became keen on involving Prithviraj in his project essentially influenced by the Media acclaim the actor received in Tamil Nadu following his amazing performance in Kana Kandaen. "The entire media unanimously appreciated him in Kana Kanden. So it was with that confidence that I signed him". His performance in Parijatham also received similar attention and appreciation in Kollywood. In 2007, Mozhi was a film in which his splendid performance was highly praised. The film ran in packed houses for more than 100 Days. He also starred in Satham Podathey and Kannamoochi Yenada, both of which were moderate successes. The success of the films and his own intense performance in them have helped him to enhance his stardom in Tamil tinsel world. The subtle performance of Prithviraj in Kannamoochi Yenada has received special mention by many reviewers. In 2008, Prithviraj starred in Vellithirai, the Tamil remake of Udayananu Tharam, a Malayalam box office success. Most reviewers of the film unequivocally praise Prithviraj's performance.

    He was described as "flawless" in his role as an aspiring director. "His character demands underplaying and he exactly does the same. Prithviraj was able to express the anger and agony of being cheated with aplomb. The way he reacts to the betrayal stands out". Yet another review echoes the same feeling: "Prithviraj makes the best of his assets - his expressive eyes, which glint in fury, soften with love, or brim over with frustrated tears". It was Fazil, a leading Malayalam film director, who introduced him to Renjith. Following a decent performance in Nandanam he was flooded with several exciting offers from the industry so that he decided to take a break from his studies and concentrate on acting.

    Award: Won the Best Model Award of Kerala (2002)ENTRY TO THE TELUGU FILM INDUSTRY:

    Nayanatara entereted the tinsel world debuting in the Malayalam film “Manassinakkare”, directed by Sathyan Anthikad opposite Jayaram (2003).The Kerala-born Christian girl from Tiruvalla, whose real name is Diana Kurien, had completed her B.A. literature and was doing her Chartered accountancy when films beckoned her. Her striking appearance and acting talent was appreciated by the Kerala audience. The huge commercial success of “Manassinakkare” helped her career in a big way.

    Then came her second film, “Vismayathumbath”(2004) by Fazil, with super star Mohanlal. Though the film did not fare well at the box office, Nayanthara has become a noted actress in Kerala film industry. Her pretty looks captured the attention of Malayalam film buffs. She again did a film with Mohanlal, “Natturajavu”.

    The pretty actress stepped into Tamil films with “Ayya” (2005) where Sarat Kumar was her hero. Her second release in Tamil was the much awaited “Chandramukhi” where she paired with superstar Rajnikanth. Barely out of her teens and hardly a year in the industry, nayantara seems to have done good career-wise. But strangely her pairings have all been with senior heroes. In between she came back to the Malayalam industry with two films ‘Thaskaraveeran’ and ‘Raapakal’ where Mammootty was her hero After crossing the border she has changed her ‘seedha sadha’ image and has started taking up glamorous roles. Nayanthara and Simbu’s intimate life-sized posters in “Vallavan” created shock waves in Chennai. Similar excitement resulted when glamorous posters of “Kalvanin Kadhali” were posted all over Chennai. Her maiden Telugu film ‘Lakshmi’ has made a big splash in Tollywood. This glamour queen is one of the busiest actresses in the southern film industry today.


    * Nayanatara means “star eyes”.

    * Completed her B.A. in Literature. Was not able to continue with her C.A. studies though due to her film commitments.

    * Her favorite film is “Manassinakkare” (2003).

    * Won the Best Model Award of Kerala in 2002.

    * Hails from Thiruvalla, a small town in Kerala where her parents, Kurian and Omana Kodiyattu, settled after her father retired from the defense service. She has one brother, Lenu, who lives in Dubai.


    “I’ve begun my career working with older heroes. The people I had been fan of, I now work with them. It’s a great opportunity for me.”
