Babloo Prithiveeraj (born 18 July 1966) is an Indian film actor, who has appeared in Tamil, Telugu and Kannada language films. He has also featured extensively on Tamil television serials throughout the 1990s and 2000s.

Career[edit]

Prithveeraj made his acting debut as a child artiste and featured in films including Naan Vazhavaippen (1979), under the stage name of Babloo. He made a comeback as an actor in the 1980s by acting in some low budget Malayalam movies before starring in Vaaname Ellai directed by K.Balachander. He then started acting in negative roles in movies like Aval Varuvaala before entering tele serials. In the 2000s, he played crucial roles in the serials Ramani vs. Ramani and the supernatural thriller Marma Desam, both directed by Naga. These serials gained him a breakthrough, while he also hosted the show Savaal in Jaya TV. He then appeared as transgender goon Ganga in Raadhika’s serial Arasi, before continuing to act further in the serials Raja Rajeshwari and Vani Rani.[1]

As film offers became less frequent, Prithveeraj spent a year competing as a part of the dance reality show, Jodi Number One during its second season. During the show, he was involved in an on-air altercation with actor and show judge Silambarasan.[2] Since 2010, he has predominantly concentrated on television roles and has featured as a lead character in the soap, Vani Rani. In 2014, he set up a bubble tea shop, Cha Republic, in Besant Nagar, Chennai after being inspired to set up a store following a visit to Malaysia.[3]

Personal life[edit]

Prithveeraj is married to Beena in 1994, and has a son called Ahed born in 1995. Ahed, who is autistic, was stopped at Bangalore Airport in 2005, and Prithveeraj made a public complaint against the security personnel's treatment of his son.[4]
