Veteran actor Thilakan is reportedly in a critical condition. He has been going through various health problems for sometime now and was hospitalized recently.
Thilakan, who is 74 years old now, started his career as a stage artiste. He started doing roles with films like Ulkkadal and Kolangal. Later on he carved out a niche for himself as one of the finest actors ever in Malayalam cinema.
His performances in several films, including Yavanika, Yathra, Perumthachan, Panchagni, Thaniyavarthanam, Kireedam, Sphadikam, Veendum Chila Veettukaryangal and many others.
He has never dared to make his opinions public without fear and that has landed him in trouble. Recently, he came up with an outstanding performance in Indian Rupee.
He is suffering from pneumonia and has been undergoing treatment at a hospital in Thiruvananthapuram.
