Jayan, one of Malayalam Cinema’s first superstars, amazed the Malayali audience with his charisma, powerful dialogue delivery and his daredevilry stunts. He has acted in several blockbuster movies like Sharapancharam, Angadi, Manyshya Mrugam, Aavesham etc.
Unfortunately, Jayan passed away in 1980 while shooting a risky stunt for the movie Kolilakkam.
Jayan is still remembered by millions of Malayalis all across the globe. Even after three decades of him passing away, mimicry artists imitate him in television shows and programmes. His mannerisms, dialogue delivery and colourful attires are still popular among the Malayali movie lovers. Let’s hope Tom Emmatty’s movie turns out to be a fitting tribute to the legend.
