Vivek Gopan Malayalam Actor

Vivek Gopan

Vivek Gopan is a young, talented, good-looking actor from the Mollywood film industry, who has become the favorite of the small screen family audience ever since he started playing the lead role, Suraj, in the mega serial, ‘Parasparam’, on the Asianet channel. Vivek is more popular among the youth as the star player of the Amma Kerala Strikers cricket team in the Celebrity Cricket League (CCL). Vivek Gopan was born in Trivandrum in 1983. He did his schooling at Trivandrum. His family, being musically inclined, provided Vivek with the opportunity to get trained in music and classical dance. During his school days, he went on many stages for both his vocal and Bharatanatyam performances. His passion for the game of cricket overtook his passion for dance and music, which finally got him a place in the Under 19 Kerala state cricket team. After his studies, he worked in the pharma sector for some years. However, it was his talent as a cricketer which got him a place in director Priyadarshan’s cricket club, which later brought him to fame in CCL. Vivek had his moments in both CCL 2, 3 and 4, and he won the “Man of the Match” award in the match against Mumbai Heroes in CCL 3. Getting selected in Priyadarshan’s cricket club was the turning point in Vivek’s life, which paved ways to his acting career in movies. His debut movie was with Superstar Mohanlal in Priyadarshan’s ‘Arabiyum Ottakavum P. Madhavan Nairum’, in 2011. Since then, he has done many small sidekicked roles and villain roles in Malayalam movies like Ee Adutha Kalathu, Nakhangal, My Fan Ramu and Thalsamayam Oru Penkutty. He also got casted in a small role in Priyadarshan’s Bollywood movie, Kamaal Dhamaal Malamaal, in 2012. It was the Malayalam serial ‘Parasparam’, directed by Purushothaman and telecasted on Asianet since 2013, which brought out the real acting talent in Vivek Gopan. Vivek bagged the Best Actor award at the Asianet Television Awards-2014 for his role as Suraj in the serial. Another Version of this Bio... Gopakumar Vivek Gopan was born on the 3rd of April, 1983. in Thiruvananthapuram. We know him as Suraj from the TV serial, ‘Parasparam’, and it is without a doubt that everyone would be surprised to know that he is also a trained classical dancer, as well as a singer. He has undertaken performances on stage for both the arts, but after his schooling, he found his calling in cricket. Little did he know then that it would lead to an entirely new platform as such. He has played for the under 19 state team and this, in turn, gave him the opportunity to be a part of director Priyadarshan’s cricket team, post his seven-year work experience in the pharmaceutical industry. While playing for the director’s team, he heard of his upcoming cinematic venture in Malayalam, ‘Arabiyum Ottakavum P.Madhavan Nayarum’, and upon selection post some photo auditioning, he made his debut with the movie in 2011. It had Mohanlal and Mukesh in the lead roles. ‘Ee Adutha Kaalath’, a critically acclaimed as well as commercially successful film, saw him part of it next. This success was followed by movies like ‘Nakhangal’, ‘My Fan Ramu’ and ‘Thalsamayam Oru Penkutty’. In Hindi, he made an appearance in Priyadarshan’s ‘Kamaal Dhamaal Malamaal’. In the Celebrity Cricket League (CCL), he played for Amma Strikers Kerala. Among the younger section of the population, this led to a wider acclaim and acceptance, as well as following for the actor. But his fame stands on solid ground when it comes to his lead role in the television series titled ‘Parasparam’, on the Asianet channel. He plays the role of a baker, who marries an IAS aspirant, Deepthi. The serial traces the difficulties Deepthi has to overcome in a patriarchal setup to follow her dreams. Her only support source is her illiterate yet informed husband, Suraj. Suraj too is encouraged by Deepthi in his cooking endeavours on National competitions and other platforms. ‘Parasparam’ is supposedly a retelling of the Hindi television serial, ‘Diya Aur Bati Hum’. It is not much of a surprise that while film actors are extremely popular, these actors from television series strike a chord with people of all ages, in the sense that they identify their everyday struggles, happiness, and aspirations with these ordinary yet inspiring characters. In this context, Vivek’s significance cannot be stressed enough.

R.Sreekandan Nair

R. Sreekandan Nair can be easily named as the first superstar of Malayalam television. R. Sreekandan Nair was not only the TV presenter but also the scriptwriter and content producer of many shows in various Kerala TV channels. When television was in its nascent stage, his experiments with TV shows created such an enormous impact in the minds of audiences that he had reigned the TV domain as host, presenter, and even sat on a throne as vice-president of a channel, etc. When he was provided the opportunity to become a TV presenter of a program ‘Oru Nimisham’, for Trivandrum Doordarshan, he was just thrilled. That was his first break as a TV presenter. When Asianet was launched, he was the Chairperson of the channel and took a new initiated to launch a talk show. He generated more popularity for a talk show '‘Nammal Thammi' which was telecast in the Asianet TV channel for a long-duration of 15 years without a break. He took the leadership of the event management division of Asianet and made it a profit making company. We all believe that this dream was a seed planted by R. Sreekandan Nair, who just made headlines nationally to make Asianet Channel a Rs 300 crore company. Later, of course, STAR Group took over the Asianet channel. Soon, another new TV channel surfaced in the hearts of Kerala state and Malayala Manorama prepared for its launch in October 2011, and he was engaged as a consultant to the Entertainment Television operations of the channel. This TV became more popular since its launch and Nair’s association with the channel remained intact. Earlier to this, he was even a popular radio broadcaster for All India Radio and even had the privilege of being a presenter of ‘Sreekandan Nair Show’ on Asianet Radio operating from the Middle East and FM stations of Kerala. Nair was also the producer of a very popular talk show named ‘Samadooram’ which was telecast in Mazhavil Manorama GEC.
