Manikandan Achari, the talented actor who rose to fame with some notable roles in Malayalam cinema, entered the wedlock. Manikandan tied the knot with his longtime girlfriend Anjali in a traditional ceremony, which was held on April 26. The wedding, which was a low-key affair, was held at the Tripunithura temple.
The couple followed all the lockdown rules for their wedding, which was attended by the immediate family members only. Manikandan Achari and Anjali also set an example by donating an amount which was supposed to be spent on their wedding, to the Kerala Chief Minister's relief fund.
Several renowned celebrities from the Malayalam film industry, including Mammootty, Dulquer Salmaan, Nivin Pauly, Kunchacko Boban, Tovino Thomas, Aju Varghese, Joju George, and others wished Manikandan Achari and Anjali a happy married life, both personally and on social media. The audiences too congratulated the couple and heaped praises on them for donating a hefty sum to the CM's relief fund.
It is a love marriage for Manikandan and Anjali, who are family friends. Even though they knew each other since childhood, love blossomed between them only two years back. The girl's family was initially against the match due to the actor's age and profession, but later accepted the relationship.
Manikandan Achari made his acting debut in 2016 with the Dulquer Salmaan-starrer Kammatipaadam, which was directed by Rajeev Ravi. The actor earned rave reviews for his performance in the movie, and won the Kerala State Film Award in 2016 for the Best Supporting Actor.
He later appeared in several popular films, including Ezra, The Great Father, Kayamkulam Kochunni, Mamangam, and others. Manikandan Achari made his Tamil debut in 2019 with Petta, the Rajinikanth-starrer helmed by Karthik Subbaraj. The actor will next be seen in Thuramukham, the upcoming Nivin Pauly starrer directed by Rajeev Ravi.
