Anil Murali is an actor who has won the hearts of the Malayalees through his villainous roles. Actors of Malayalam cinema came on stage to offer condolences on his demise. The memoir written by my friend and director M Padmakumar about Anil Murali is touching. Padmakumar says that despite having acted in over 200 Malayalam films, Anil’s acting is recognized and acknowledged as only in Tamil cinema. He opened his mind through Facebook.
