Chavara: Disabled social worker Krishnakumar was on cloud nine as his two-decade old dream came true as he met popular actor Mohanlal the other day here in Kerala's Kollam district.
Krishnakumar, fondly known as Kuttu, became very emotional as the superstar hugged him and exchanged pleasantries. Recently, Krishnakumar got the ‘Youth Icon’ award of the Kerala State Youth Commission for his efforts to provide succour to patients despite his physical disability.
Many, including noted actress Manju Warrier, had felicitated Krishnakumar when he received the award.
The wheel-chair bound Krishnakumar, who is suffering from muscular dystrophy, hails from Pattathanam near here in Kollam district and is at the helm of affairs of ‘Mind’, an organisation working for the welfare of people suffering from muscular dystrophy.
Krishnakumar’s long-standing desire to meet Mohanlal was conveyed to block panchayat member Arun Raj by his friends Anoop Pattathanam and Sreekuttan. The meeting was made possible at a hotel after Arun Raj informed former minister Shibu Baby John about Krishnakumar’s dream to meet the legendary actor.
