Malayalam cinema’s superstar Tovino Thomas couldn’t have hoped for a better birthday. As he turned 33 on January 21 Tovino had a working birthday and a family party after that.
Says Tovino, “I was shooting with Keerthi Suresh for a Malayalam film called Vaashi till evening. The shooting of the film was wrapped up on my birthday and it’s now complete. After the shooting I rushed home to be with my entire family: my wife . my two children, my parents , sister and her husband.”
Tovino lives happily in a joint family of parents and siblings with his wife and children. In addition his family also includes various pets including a dog, 5 species of parrots and various other kinds of birds who co-exist in an open space.
Is this paradise or what?
“I am living a dream,” Tovino laughs in joy. “It’s a virtual paradise. And my one birthday wish would be, that my family and I continue living together forever.Even when I move into a larger place I will make sure we are together.”
So how was this birthday different from others, considering Minnal Murali has changed the course of his life and career? “Nothing has changed. My special day remained as special , as it used to be. No more no less.”
