Tovino Thomas is an actor who in a short span of time became a ‘star’ in the Malayalam film industry. The actor was able to find a place of his own in the Malayalam films in seven years. His entry to the Malayalam films was not that easy. He had no film tradition, what he had was only the ‘dream of films. The actor now opens up on the support of his better half.

Tovino got married to Lidiya after dating for 11 years. Although both our families knew each other, I met her and became closer to her when both of us were in the same school for plus one, he said.

The actor said, “We went together for engineering in Coimbatore. We were in two different colleges, but used to meet once in a while and go for films. Since I had no money, I used to watch movies in Rs 10 ticket. If she is with me, have to take tickets of higher fare. So, I used to go alone. She knew my passion for films. She was a great support. I had only a small role in my first film ‘Prabuvinte Makkal’. I didn’t have films for some time after that. If she had discouraged me then, I would have disappeared from films, luckily that didn’t happen,” he said.

He got emotional while talking about his wife in an interview given to a famous media. The two got married in 2014. The couple has a three-year-old daughter Iza.
