Anil Nedumangad (also known as P. Anil; 30 May 1972 – 25 December 2020) was an Indian film actor who appeared in Malayalam films.

Acting career[edit | edit source]

He made his debut in Thaskaraveeran with an uncredited appearance.[1] His breakthrough was in the 2014 film Njan Steve Lopez, directed by Rajeev Ravi.[2][3][4][5] Other movies where he played important roles were Ayyappanum Koshiyum, Kammatipaadam, Kismath, Paavada and Porinju Mariam Jose.[6][7][8][9]

Early life[edit | edit source]

Anil was born in Nedumangad, Trivandrum, Kerala, as the son of C. Peethambharan Nair, a retired teacher, and Rajamma. He had an elder brother, Anand, an Ayurvedic Doctor. He studied in Mancha School, MG College (BA Malayalam) and School of Drama, Thrissur.[10][11][12] He started his career as a TV anchor and program producer for TV Channels Kairali TV, Asianet, JaiHind TV, Reporter TV and Kairali News.[13][14][15]

Death[edit | edit source]

Anil died from drowning at Malankara Dam while bathing with friends during a break of the film Peace on 25 December 2020, aged just 48.[16][17] He had come to bath there since there was a break due to Christmas. He re-entered the dam for bathing after already having a bath, and suddenly got trapped in an undercurrent and went under. Eventhough his friends searched for him, they could not find him, and thus took the help of Kerala Fire Force and local people, who finally found Anil. Though he was taken to the nearby hospital, his life could not be saved. Locals say that it is difficult to swim on Malankara Dam, even for extremely good swimmers.
