Acting career[edit]

Biju Menon [5] started his acting career through Malayalam television serials such as Ningalude Swantham Chanthu, Parudeesayilekulla Patha and Mikhayelinte Santhathikal. He made his debut in films with Puthran, the sequel of Mikhayelinte Santhathikal. He acted in a number of movies as villain and second hero. During the second half of nineties, he was considered to be the superstar in making. But most of the films with Biju Menon as hero failed in box office,in spite of his good performance, though his roles as second hero were very popular. He acted with Suresh Gopi in a number of super hit movies like Pathram, F. I. R., and Chinthamani Kolacase. During the later 1990s and early 2000s he appeared in a few offbeat movies with directors like T. V. Chandran, Lenin Rajendran, and Kamal in the films Mazha, Madhuranombarakkattu, Anyar, and Meghamalhar.

He is considered to be one of the favourite actors of director Lal Jose, as he has appeared in the majority of movies directed by him, including Oru Maravathoor Kanavu, Chandranudikkunna Dikhil, Randaam Bhavam,Pattalam, Rasikan, Chanthupottu, Mulla and Spanish Masala.

He won the Kerala State Film Award for Second Best Actor twice in his acting career for his roles as Akhilachandran in Krishnagudiyil Oru Pranayakalathu(1997) and Nanda Kumar in T. D. Dasan Std. VI B(2010). He also acts as an antagonist in Tamil films as well and has been successful in films like Majaa and Thambi.
