Cherthala: In a remarkable achievement, actor Leena Antony, known for her performance in Fahadh Faasil starrer ‘Maheshinte Prathikaram’, aced the Class 10 equivalency exam at the age of 73.
The actor, who was unable to complete school education, decided to pursue her studies in order to get over the loneliness following the death of her husband and actor KL Antony.
Leena had appeared for the equivalency exam last September under the continuing education programme. When the results came out, she passed in all subjects except Mathematics and Chemistry.
Following this, she attended the SAY exam and cleared both papers.
Reportedly, Leena’s son Lasar Shine and daughter-in-law advocate Maya Krishnan are the ones who encouraged the actor to write the exams.
Meanwhile, the actor, who began her career as a theatre artist, has acted in several Malayalam films such as ‘Makal’, ‘Jo and Jo’ among others.
