Babu had been acting in radio plays while at college. Following his graduation in 1973, Babu acted in Paanchajanyam, yielding a good performance. Babu acted at Kalidasa Kala Kendram for two years, and was offered roles by the late O. Madhavan and K. T. Muhammed.
After acting in his first film Inayethedi in 1977, Babu started his drama troupe 'Kalasala' in Thripunithura, which had artists such as Thilakan, Surasu, amongst others. The troupe began with the play 'Thalavattom', scripted by Surasu, which became a big hit. In total nine plays were conducted, scripted by renowned personalities such as P. J.

Towards the end of 1999, Babu was cast in Kala, a 13-episode television serial. His role of the character, Rowdy Dasappan, was well received by viewers. Following this, Babu acted in around 28 mega-serials over the next three years.
Babu made his way back into cinema with Kasthooriman in 2003, since then acting in character and villain roles in many movies, and has achieved recognition for his performances, comfortably filling the acting space left vacant by late character actors such as N. F. Varghese and Narendra Prasad. He became more popular in the film Lion as father of Dileep. Babu had acted in a popular Malayalam serial AMMA as a retired judge Poomankalathe Gopinatha Menon which is daily telecast on Asianet channel from 2012 to 2015. He was paired with Kanya Bharathi and later replaced by Mammootty brother. Currently he is doing a Malayalam serial named SOORYAKALADI which is telecasting on Amrita.
