There is a story behind music director Bijibal’s tattoo. The composer has tattooed his wife Santhi’s picture, with the lines “ente chundile chiri… chankile chora”.
The lines mean, the smile on my lips… the blood in my heart.
Santhi, a well-known dancer, passed away on 29 Aug this year, following a stroke. Her death came as a shock to all. The couple has two children.
Bijibal, one of the finest musicians in Malayalam, is known for his melodious tunes. He has won the National award and the Kerala State film awards.
Bijibal’s gesture has been widely discussed by the social media.
