We, the people of Kerala can be proud of our Malayalam actors, who are unique in their own aspects. Most of the Malayalam actors have made it big at various award circuits, with their performances in films.
Today, we are about to discuss about one such prestigious award and that is the Kerala State Film Awards, which is considered to be the epitome of Film Awards in Kerala. The result of the year 2016 was announced recently and it was actor Vinayakan, who won the Best Actor title, this year.
Most of the Malayalam actors, including the superstars like Mammootty and Mohanlal have won this title, a good number of times in the past. In fact, even the young crop of talents like Prithviraj, Dulquer Salmaan, Nivin Pauly, Fahadh Faasil etc., have also made it big at the Kerala State Film Awards in the past.
But, there are a few Malayalam actors, who have been unlucky, as far as the title of the Best Actor at the Kerala State Film Awards are concerned. Here, we take you through some of the popular lead Malayalam actors, who haven't won this title yet. Read on..
He is one of the most deserving actors among the lot. Over the years, he has carved a place of his own as one of the most popular lead actors of the industry but he hasn't won the State Award for the Best Actor yet.
In fact, the actor has won two Kerala State Film Awards, so far. At first he won a special jury mention for his performance in Thooval Kottaram(1996). Later in 2000, he was adjudged the Second Best Actor for his performance in the film Swayamvarapanthal.
He is one of the most unfortunate Malayalam actors who had to miss out the Kerala State Film Award for the Best Actor in various occasions. In 2014, he was in the race for the Best Actor award for his performance in the film Apothecary, but he couldn't win an award. Later in 2015, his performance in Su.Su..Sudhi Valmeekam was much noted, but he had to be happy with a Special Jury Award for the performance.
Interestingly, this talented actor has won the Kerala State Film Award for the Best actor, a couple of times. In 1997, he won it for Krishnagudiyil Oru Pranayakalathu and in 2010, he fetched it for his performance in TD Dasan Std VI B. But, he hasn't been able to fetch the Best Actor title yet. Biju Menon, is one of the most bankable lead actors of present day Malayalam cinema and we hope that in the future, he would surely fetch some big awards.
It was in the year 2008 that Asif Ali, started his acting career. Over the years, he has grown as an actor, who is quite dependable. Disappointingly, the actor hasn't got the chance to portray those kinds of roles, which are worth winning awards. Hopefully, more author-backed and powerful roles would come on the actor's way in the future.
Here is another senior-most actor, who has missed out on the chances to win the Best Actor title. In fact, the actor was in the race for the Best Actor award in this year for his performance in the film Ayal Sasi. Earlier, in 2006, the actor did win a special jury award for his performance in the film Thakarachenda.
Kunchacko Boban hasn't won the Best Actor title yet. In his acting career, so far, seldom he has got the chance to play variety roles with good scope of performance. In 2004, his portrayal of the lead character in the critically acclaimed film Ee Snehatheerathu fetched him a special jury award. In fact, the actor had given a splendid performance in this year's film Vettah, as well, but disappointingly, that didn't fetch him any big award.
Indrajith can be easily termed as one of the most talented young actors of Malayalam cinema. The actor has mesmerised many a times with the effective portrayal of some well-etched characters, with utmost ease.
But, he has been unlucky, as far as his tryst with Kerala State Film Awards is concerned. He doesn't have any major title under his belt. Earlier, there were reports that, the actor was in the race for the Kerala State Film Award for the Best Actor of 2016, for his performance in Kaadu Pookkunna Neram.
