Praveen Prem is an Indian Artiste, who predominantly appears in Malayalam movies. Praveen is from the village Maruthoorkadavu, in Trivandrum, Kerala. From a young age, he has been passionate about films and this desire drove him to complete a certification course in Video Editing, from the state institute, Keltron. In the year 2008, he entered into Mollywood as an Assistant Editor, under
Mahesh Narayanan. He enhanced his knowledge and experience, by working in several endorsements and short films.
He realized that he was more interesting to be in front of the camera, rather than behind it and hence left the job as an editor to pursue acting. After a year, in 2009, Prem became a part of the Soorya Theatre Group and appeared in two noteworthy dramas- Soorya-Pulari and Sookshma Charcha. The theater experience taught him many valuable lessons and made him eligible to shift to the silver screen. In the year 2010, his acting dreams were fulfilled when he was approached by the Director Sathyan Anthikad, to act in the film Kadha Thudarunnu.
The movie that had Jayaram and
Mamta Mohandas, as the lead, gave Prem the platform to exhibit his acting skills. He got his first vital role in the film Tournament- Play and Replay, in the same year 2010. In this flick, he shared the lead role with
Fahadh Faasil and
Rupa Manjari. The movie was a super hit and fetched Praveen a good name in the industry.
Other roles to his credit are as Balan in Snehaveedu (2011), Unnipilla in Sim (2013), Unni in Rebecca Uthup Kizhakkemala (2013), Kiran in Crocodile Love Story (2013) and a few more. Praveen’s latest movie in Malayalam is 7th Day, which was released in the year 2014. He played the role of Cyril Samual, in this Prithviraj starring cop movie.
The fame he attained in Mollywood landed him in a Tamil movie,
