Padmaraj Ratheesh is a famous actor from the Malayalam industry. He was born in Kerala to the couple Diana and the well-known veteran hero Ratheesh. His dad passed away when he was little, and his mother too is no more. Though his father already belonged to the industry Padmaraj along with his siblings were not given much exposure to the cinema field and considered their dad's office was just another "office." As they grew up, everyone studied very well and are in high positions now. But the junior Ratheesh always had the interest to become an actor and to follow his dad's footsteps. But before joining in films the actor had majored in Business Management and worked in a reputed company for about five years, but he had to resign as there was no one there to look after his sick mother.
Padmaraj's debut movie was named Fireman where he got to play a negative role. His next film was with one of the Mollywood superstar Mammootty. The film was given the title as Acche Din, and Padmaraj's acting was very well appreciated and praised by the audience. The artist also has a younger sister named
Parvathy Ratheesh who also is very well educated and she too entered in this field.
Both the siblings have got no formal training for acting whatsoever, but they grew up watching their dad's motion pictures which were just enough for them to do well in the industry. Karinkunnam 6S is the third film of the elder Ratheesh which is likely to be released this year, and he will share the screen space with the beautiful star Manju Warrier.
In this flick, he plays the role of a volleyball player, and Manju Warrier plays the role of a coach. It was the first ever movie made on the sport of volleyball in Mollywood. Deepu Karunakaran has directed this amazing flick who also happened to direct Padmaraj's first motion picture, Fireman. The superstar Mammootty is like a godfather for these two newbies in the industry. He was a close friend of their father's.
