Sudev Nair, the actor who won the Best Actor trophy aong with Nivin Pauly in the Kerala State Film Awards 2015, has already become a sensation in Mollywood. He has definitely found a place for himself in M'town.
Interestingly, media and audience were almost clueless about who Sudev Nair is when the awards were announced. Sadly, the movie My Life Partner hasn't received much recognitions from the industry, as it deals with a sensitive subject- homosexuality.
But, Sudev Nair's fantabulous performance in the movie made him eligible to receive the most prestigious award of the industry. The actor, who hails from Aluva, is an alumni of Pune Film Institute.
Sudev Nair's role in the movie, Kiran was initially offered to some popular young actors of the industry. But all of them rejected the film, as they were not courageous enough to play a homosexual onscreen.
Later, director Padmakumar finalised Sudev for the role, after watching some of his short films. Sudev was completely confident about playing a gay onscreen and feels that homosexuality is absolutely normal.
The young actor will be next seen in the Prithviraj starrer movie Anarkali, directed by popular scenarist Sachi. Sudev Nair, who made his acting debut with Gulabi Gang, is planning to be active in the industry.
