Once upon a time, theater actresses ran from stage to stage. What they have today are the memories the arena gave them. Putting aside the infirmities of old age, Jayashree began to speak. Back then, I lived in Thrissur Poongana during my childhood. Father Neelakandan Nair works at Sitaram Mill. Low income. He was first called in a play when he was in the ninth grade.

He did small roles in films like Moodupadam, Chemmeen, Mudiyanaya Putran, Salt. | Married at 22 years old. Unnikrishnan Nambiar’s husband. His departure was too soon. He died aged 40.
