Kunchacko Boban is a Malayalam actor. He is the grandson of famous film producer Kunchacko of erstwhile Udaya Studios Alappuzha. He started his career through a superhit Malayalam film Aniyathipravu in 1997. His role in the film Harikrishnans made him one of the top actors of Malayalam industry. He married Priya Ann Samuel on 2 April 2005. He has acted in about 30 films in Malayalam. Although, for almost the past two years, he hasn't appeared in any films as the leading or supporting character.
He became an instant teenage heartthrob after his first film, the Fazil directed Aniyathi Pravu (1997), was released. He was a favourite among Kerala's college-campus scene after starring in numerous love stories, but once he finished college, he decided to focus on character roles with more scope.
He hails from the Maliampurakal family, who are credited with owning the first film studio in Kerala - Udaya. His favourite dish is Karimeen (fried fish).
His Niram (co-starring Shalini) directed by Kamal was a rage among teenagers and college students.
