Chief Minister Pinarayi Vijayan on Monday said that Nedumudi Venu has played a significant role in elevating the acting standards of the overall Malayalam filmdom.
“Nedumudi Venu is a talented actor who has established a permanent presence in the minds of the audience by playing different roles. As an actor, he took a keen interest in literature and played a leading role in everything from folk songs to experimental plays. The folk songs sung by him will be in the minds of the people for a long time to come,” he said.
“The demise of Nedumudi Venu, who loved literature and acting alike, is an irreparable loss to our cultural arena,” the CM added.
