BackgroundEdit

He completed his primary education at Krist Raj Highschool, Kollam and Bachelors in Arts from Sree Narayana college, Kollam[4]

Since his father was a Railway Station Master who was working at Kollam, he was brought up at Kadappakada in Kollam and adopted Kollam as the suffix for his name.[5]

He went to the director Padmarajan to become an assistant director but, seeing his talent, Padmarajan cast him in his movie Parannu Parannu Parannu, and thus made his debut in a Malayalam movie in 1984. After that, he was a permanent actor in all Padmarajan movies. He turned a director and scriptwriter in the Malayalam movie Calling Bell.[6]

He was married to Prameela. The couple had a daughter Gayathri and a son Sreehari. They resided at Kochi.[7]
