Malayalam actor Prithviraj Sukumaran had shocked many of his fans five years ago after he secretly got married to Supriya Menon in a private ceremony in Palakkad on April 25, 2011. Since then, the audience have seen many ups and downs in the career graph of Prithviraj, who has now become one of the most bankable actors of the industry, with his back-to-back blockbusters.

On his fifth wedding anniversary on Monday, April 25, the actor called Supriya his best friend and thanked her for being part of his good and bad times. He also thanked her for giving birth to the biggest happiness of life â€" their one-and-a-half-year-old daughter Alankrita Menon.

"It's been 5 years today since I got married to Supriya in a small private ceremony in Palakkad. Like all phases of life..this one too has had its share of ups and downs..but through all those..especially when I thought life had challenged me with rather unfair odds at times, I had my best friend by my wife! So I guess it's fair to say a big THANK YOU to the best thing that's happened to me. Thank you Supriya for being who you are and for giving birth to the biggest happiness in my life. I love you [sic]," Prithviraj posted on his Facebook page.

Meanwhile, on the career front, Prithviraj has been basking in the success of his previous releases, "Ennu Ninte Moideen," "Amar Akbar Anthony," "Anarkali," "Paavada," and "Darwinte Parinamam." Meanwhile, the upcoming movie of the actor, "James and Alice," which was earlier scheduled to hit the theatres has been postponed to May 5. 

Prithviraj seems to be the busiest actor in Malayalam with an handful of projects in his kitty for the next two years. The upcoming projects of the actor include RS Vimal's big-budget movie "Karnan," James Kottakal's "Beautiful Game," Pradeep M Nair's "Vimaanam," Rosshan Andrews' "Naale Ravile," Jinu Abraham's "Adam," Blessy's "Aadujeevitham" and epic drama "Kunchirakkottu Kaali."
