Actor Salim Kumar and his wife are celebrating their 24th wedding anniversary.
In a note shared on his social media page, the award winning actor praises his wife and wishes her on the joyous occasion.
“ ‘If I ever get married, it would only be to a mimicry artist,’ it’s been 24 years since this woman made this precarious yet firm statement. It was this same determination that held me back even when I had been on the verge of leaving this world, many times. I don’t know how to thank her. There aren’t any celebrations. I believe that all of your prayers are with us,” Salim Kumar wrote in his quintessential humorous style.
He and his wife Sunitha have two sons, Chandu and Aaromal.
He once told an interviewer that his father was an atheist and a follower of the veteran social reformer Sahodaran Ayyappan, who was also from North Paravur, and so named his son Salim Kumar to avoid religious associations.
