Kalidas Jayaram, son of Mollywood actor Jayaram, has already made his entry into films following his father’s path. He first appeared in Sathyan Anthikad’s Kochu Kochu Santhoshangal. He later appeared in an AD of Diary Milk Silk. He made his Tamil debut with Oru Pakka Kathai which is in the pre-production stage now. His second Tamil movie Meen Kuzhambum Mann Paanaiyum is in the production stage. Now he is all ready to make his lead debut in Malayalam with the upcoming project of Abrid Shine.
Recently, in an interview Jayaram said about an interesting incident of how he got the name ‘Kalidas’. It was during the time when Jayaram-Parvathy couples were waiting to be blessed by a child. They were in Mookambika temple and Jayaram noticed a cute little child in the premises. When he came near, Jayaram asked him his name and he replied with a naughty smile “Kalidasan”.
Even though the boy disappeared into the crowd, his name remained in Jayaram’s heart. At that moment only he said to Parvathy “ If our child is a boy, we will name him Kalidasan”. A boy was born to them and we know the rest.
