Information about Parvathy Thiruvothu

During her struggling days to get a film, people from the Malayalam film industry asked her for sexual favours in order to get a role, but she said NO.  Her debut Kannada film 'Milana' (2007), did 1000 days run at the box-office.  Besides acting, she is a fabulous Bharatanatyam dancer.  Parvathy was born into a Malayali family of advocates.  She is very choosy about her roles and in the initial 10 years of her acting career, she did only 17 films.  Does Parvathy Thiruvothu smoke?: Not Known  She loves learning different languages and knows Hindi, Tamil, Kannada, French, Malayalam, and English.  She rose to fame with the super-hit Malayalam film 'Bangalore Days' (2014), where she played the role of vivacious 'RJ Sarah.'  Does Parvathy Thiruvothu drink alcohol?: Not Known  Earlier, she was a non-vegetarian, but after she met a photojournalist named Joan MacArthur in Finland during the making of her film 'Ennu Ninte Moideen' (2015), she turned vegetarian. Not only this, she doesn't consume dairy or animal-based products and has quit using leather products as well.  Her surname 'Menon' is a product of media misconception. According to Parvathy, she never had a surname in any of her official documents except her birth certificate, which holds the name- 'Parvathy Thiruvothu Kottuvatta' (Thiruvothu Kottuvatta being the title of her maternal family house). Due to the transfer certificate errors during her schooling, she lost that surname. As a result of it, her 10th standard certificate, her driving license, her voter card, and her passport only holds the name – 'Parvathy', with no surname.  She is an introvert and doesn't like socializing and partying.  During her studies, she was a victim of eve teasing, online predators, and stalking.  In 2006, she made her acting debut with a small role in the film 'Out Of Syllabus', but didn't get much recognition. The same year, her Malayalam film 'Notebook' released and people started recognizing her.  She has been a successful VJ at Thiruvananthapuram based TV channel 'Kiran TV.'
