Actor-politician Suresh Gopi achieved a historic victory for the BJP in Kerala's Thrissur Lok Sabha constituency, as congratulatory messages poured in from the film fraternity on social media.

Notable Malayalam film stars, including Mammootty and Mohanlal, expressed their hearty congratulations on platform 'X'. "Hearty Congrats Dear Suresh on your victory," Mammootty posted, while Mohanlal wrote, "Congratulations dear Suresh."

At Nedumbassery international airport, comedian Tini Tom greeted Gopi with a saffron shawl and a warm hug. "Congratulations Suresh etta," Unni Mukundan posted on Facebook, with similar sentiments echoed by film producer Antony Perumbavoor who also said, "Congratulations on your victory, dear Suresh chetta!" Actress Shwetha Menon and producer Listin Stephen added their congratulations as well.

Suresh Gopi triumphed over CPI leader V S Sunilkumar, receiving 4,12,338 votes against Sunilkumar's 3,37,652, according to Election Commission figures. Congress's senior leader K Muraleedharan came third with 3,28,124 votes.

This result was a significant setback for the ruling CPI(M)-led LDF and the Congress-headed UDF, both of which had dismissed exit polls predicting Gopi's win.
