Tovino Thomas has had a slow and steady rise in Malayalam cinema. Starting as a model, to playing cameo and supporting roles in films, he got his big break with the Prithviraj starrer Ezra. Post the film's success he made his debut as leading man in Oru Mexican Aparatha in 2017. The film did well at the box office and Tovino Thomas had arrived.
He has not had a great start in 2018, but looks like he is all set to change that with two of his upcoming films; Theevandi, a political satire and Maradona, a romantic thriller. Directed by debutant Vishnu Narayanan, Maradona is expected to release on June 22. Sharanya plays the heroine. On June 29, Theevandi directed by Fellini TP will hit the screens. Samyukta is cast opposite Tovino in this film.
