Niranj menon is a Malayalam actor and the son of Maniyanpillai raju, a well established and a famous star of the Malayalam film industry. He had contributed immensely through his films to the Malayalam cinema and therefore there are high expectations from his son niranj, since he decided to trace the footsteps of his father. Niranj was born in Trivandaram on 4th may 1981. He is pursuing bachelors degree in commerce from Mar Ivanious college. Junior menon was always interested to go to abroad for gaining higher education and so he rejected innumerable offers that fell in his zone to act in some big and good projects. Lately he did his silver screen debut through the movie ‘black butterfly’, made under the direction of Ranjith, who himself was a debutant. Although he was accompanied by new comers like Malavika, mithun and sanskriti, who gave him tough competition, niranj managed to create a space for himself in the industry through his confident approach and powerful performance without any hesitation in spite of facing the camera for the first time. Niranj was appreciated by the late actor Thikkurissi who saw a superstar in him that would come out in front of the whole world very soon. The display of emotions through his acting is something in him that can impress anyone. He is undoubtedly talented and wishes to reach the zenith through his continuous efforts. He does not want the world to see him as being dependent on his father for the stability in his career. He is continuously gaining offers to work in movie and will be seen very soon once again.
