Malayalam actress Manju Warrier is Kerala’s pride, even though the actress is not Malayali by birth
Though it seems unlikely, Malayalam actress Manju Warrier was not born in Kerala.
The Mollywood lady superstar was born in Nagercoil in Tamil Nadu on September 10, 1978
She acted in Malayalam cinema for just three years before her marriage to Dileep and did only 20 films
In just three years, Manju won the state award for her performance in 'Ee Puzhayum Kadannu', opposite Dileep. She also received a special mention from National Award jury for her performance in 'Kannezhuthi Pottumthottu'
Her marriage to Dileep created headlines in the Malayalam film industry. She eloped with the actor after completing the shooting of 'Kannezhuthi Pottumthottu' in 1999. Newspapers even reported that the actress was missing.
She is the only actress who managed to make such a strong comeback and received the same popularity in her second innings, after 14 years.
In the second term, she ventured into different areas including social work. She is the brand ambassador of various government projects.
