The best actor award went to popular comedian and character actor Suraj Venjaramoodu for his roles in "Android Kunjappen" and "Vikurthi". He left seasoned veterans like Mammootty, Mohanlal far behind and also edged out his nearest rival Fahad Fazil, who had to settle for the best character actor award.
"This is a great responsibility for me and I am greatly happy about this award. I am really thankful to those who took me in the two films. Now my wish is we all want the old normal to return, as Covid has really caused havoc. We all want the theatres to open and the audience to be back and wish and pray it happens," said Venjaramoodu.
