Full Biography of Actor Nizhalgal Ravi

Nizhalgal Ravi (born: Ravichandran Shyamanna)is an Indian actor who has performed in Tamil, Malayalam and Telugu films. He mostly uses Tamil as his major mother tongue language. He started his career in 1980 with the film Nizhalgal.  He has completed acting in 500 films.

Nizhalgal Ravi, an actor in South Indian film industry, started his career under the baton of veteran director Bharathiraja in the Tamil film Nizhalgal which fetched him his sobriquet Nizhalgal. He played the role of an aspiring hero who falls in love, a performance which took him to the pinnacle of glory, but has not been blessed with a good break as a top hero. He has had many character roles including films Vedam Puthithu, Nayakan, Chinna Thambi Periya Thambi, Annamalai, Marupadiyam, Aasai, and more. He portrayed his roles with as a kind hearted father, a ruthless villain, or a ditcher.

He dubbed for Amitabh Bachchan for the program Kaun Banega Crorepati in Tamil. He acted in more than 25 movies in Malayalam during the 80s. He was born as Ravichandran to Shyamanna and D. Rajammal in an orthodox family. He did his B.A. in Economics in P.S.G. Arts, Coimbatore. He acted in director K. Balachander\'s telefilm Rayil Sneham, which became a hit in the late 80s and early 90s. He also acted in Nayagan, which became one of the best Tamil movie of all time.

His performance in the TV serial \"Jannal\" was one in which he played the character of a normal middle age business man who has more negative pages in his personal life. The last climax episode of this serial is a master piece of his performance, as well as director Mr.K.Balachander\'s distinct directorial feat.

In Tamil speaking community, the program \"KBC\" got huge reception, due to the dubbing voice performed by Nizhalgal Ravi.  The voice exactly matched Mr. Amithab Bachan\'s stiff and rigid voice. When asked about how he could deliver such a suitable voice in the program, in an interview for a Tamil weekly, he replied, \"I was delighted when i got a call for dubbing opportunity for Amitabhji.. but when i saw the original program... i thought of how to match his voice familiarity...then i found out that, during early morning when i wake up, my voice used to be little bit above normal vocal.. so i decided to do the dubbing by early morning 5.00 am in the studio...for which i wake up at 4.00 and get ready and go.. and this is how it has happened\".
