Nanjil Vijayan is a rising comedian who became well-known after taking part in the popular comedy show 'Kalakka Povathu Yaaru S4'.

The comedian, who rose to fame via the show, recently revealed his tragic life story.

He revealed his father became an alcoholic when he was still a kid, and his mother who got frustrated with his father's habit set herself on fire and burned to death in front of her children.

Soon after his mother's death, Vijayan's father abandoned the children. Vijayan and his siblings were left orphans, and it was his grandmother who took care of them.

After successfully completing his college, Vijayan got a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to take part in Kalakka Povathu Yaaru. Despite getting eliminated in the first round, that opportunity helped him to kickstart his journey as a comedian.

Nanjil Vijayan mostly dresses up as a lady when delivering his comedy, and can be seen pairing up with comedian Raamar on and off.
