Vijayakumar Menon, the father-in-law of Malayalam actor Prithiviraj, died today, November 15, at Manambarakkad House. He had died at the age of 71 years. Prithviraj’s wife Supriya Menon’s father, according to sources, has been battling cancer for quite some time. Due to a cardiac condition, he also had surgery.
Supriya Menon, Vijayakumar Menon’s sole daughter, and his wife Plakkott Padma Menon survive him. When Supriya met Prithviraj in Mumbai, she was a reporter. She returned to journalism after her marriage and is now a co-producer with Prithviraj Productions, the production business founded by her actor-husband.
Supriya has backed some popular movies including Driving License and Kuruthi. ‘Jana Gana Mana’ and ‘Kaduva’ are two future films that she is producing. She has worked with international and national news organisations such as BBC India and NDTV.
