31 Engineering Graduate(Btech) Mollywood Celebrities


  • Its is purely based on my research and i have no agenda of promoting or de-promoting any stars listed here.

Even if we search world cinema i am not sure about listing much engineering graduated film stars. But when i eagerly researched about such a category in Kerala film fraternity,i was sure about listing at least 10 and see later it turned to 10+. And to find this kind of  list from an art form ,where educational qualification is not mandatory is just amazing and i truly believe that our highly civilized and literate culture in Kerala are the reason for this. But to be frank i am not sure how many in the list passed out engineering successfully .
