    Security cover for Mammootty

    2007/5/28 11:18:19

    Speaking at the DYFI conference, Mammootty said, "If communist organizations like DYFI had been in Gujarat, atrocities in name of religion would not have taken place." This very comment has sparked protest against him from political outfits. For this reason, police security has been given to him.

    This statement did not go down well with the BJP and the RSS. The Congress had other problems. If prominent stars like Mammootty take part in conventions like DYFI, it will strengthen the ruling Marxist party and spell doom for the Congress to come to power. So, they framed a case on Mammootty that he had illegally appropriated government lands.

    Following dissatisfaction by BJP and RSS, the police said that Mammootty's life is under threat. So, his Ernakulam house is given police protection.

    At present, Mammootty is in Kannur for the shooting of Pazhassi Raja. A group of protestors damaged a hotel where the film crew is staying, thinking that Mammootty is put up there. Cars were smashed and filming equipment and vans were destroyed. It is surmised that this could be the work of Hindutva groups who could not tolerate Mammootty's remarks on Gujarat.

    Following this incident, Mammootty has been given police protection.

    Vimala finally with Dileep

    2007/9/5 14:30:04

    Vimala Raman seems to the biggest find of the year in Malayalam, as she is cast continuously against big stars. Even though none of her films made big talk at the box office, still she has two big releases in Nasrani opposite Mammootty and in College Kumaran opposite Mohanlal.

    She had recently been with Dileep in Calcutta News in a short cameo, but not as his heroine.

    Kavya becomes numero uno in Malayalam!

    2008/3/7 15:29:09

    Though Kavya Madhavan fails to attract Tamil viewers, she is the numero uno at present in Malayalam film industry. Yes, she is going to play the lady love of both the superstars of Malayalam, Mohanlal and Mammootty in their forthcoming ventures.

    So far Kavya was never romantically paired with the two Superstars of the industry in any film. All her hits, where she played heroine, are with Dileep, Jayasurya and Pritviraj.

    From April 4, she will be shooting with Mohanlal in Madambi, directed by Unnikrishnan. She plays the role of Jayalakshmi, a girl who comes from nowhere to destroy the hero's dominance but ends up falling in love with him (as usual).

    It is a long time wish of Kavya to pair with Mohanlal for whom she has played his sister or in law characters only on screen.

    Kavya is playing Mammootty's heroine in Johnny Antony's (Cycle fame) next flick Pattanathil Bhootham. It is mentionable that the actress started her acting career as a child artist in Mammootty's Azhagiya Ravanan!

    Udit summoned again

    2006/7/22 16:30:35

    The Bihar State Commission for Women has summoned Bollywood playback singer, Udit Narayan Jha, to appear before it on July 28 at 12.30 pm in the Ranjana Jha case.

    Chairperson of the commission Manju Prakash, who had earlier given 15 days time, which ended on Friday, to both Udit and Ranjana so that they can arrive at a "meaningful reconciliation" and had asked the singer not to leave the country in this period, said Udit has to appear before the commission on July 28 failing which a case of bigamy would be lodged against him.

    Manju Prakash said the commission has enough evidence against Udit required for filing a bigamy case. It may be recalled that Ranjana Jha, a resident of Supaul, claims herself to be Udit's first wife.

    Ranjana had knocked the doors of the commission seeking justice which was nothing less then due recognition to her as Udit's wife. The commission hearing the prayer of Ranjana had issued summons to the singer to appear before it, but every time Udit had failed to comply with its order.

    Manju Prakash said the commission was not against an out of the court settlement between Udit and Ranjana, but also did not forget to mention that in this fortnight nothing concrete had taken place.

    Asked as to why she was setting a deadline for Udit, Manju Prakash said the commission had given enough time to the singer, but every time he had failed to appear on the due date resulting in waste of precious hours of the commission.

    She said though the prime responsibility of the commission was counselling, it was in no mood to waste time over the case as several other important cases were pending disposal.

    Mammootty in Annan Thampi

    2007/10/10 10:57:01

    Mammootty’s much-talked-about film with director Anwar Rasheed has been titled Annan Thampi. Mammootty plays the role of two brothers in the film; maybe that’s the reason why Rasheed chose this title. Marikkar Films will produce the movie with a script by Naayarambalam. Rahul Raj helms the music.

    Mammootty appeared in dual roles last year in Balaram vs. Taradas by I.V. Sasi. Mammootty, who is currently busy with Renji Panikkar’s Rudram, will begin the shooting of Katha Parayumpol soon. The film is being produced by Mukesh and Sreenivasan under the banner of Lumiere Films.

    Mammootty as Mammootty

    2008/5/3 11:25:31

    Malayalam Megastar Mammootty has set a record of acting in at least 10 films on his own identity as a film star’. Film circles say no other actor has acted in so many films as film actor.

    He is now preparing to act once again the role of superstar Mammootty in Prithviraj-starrer film, `One Way Ticket’.

    His most well known role as superstar is in the hit film, Katha Parayumbol, which is being remade as Kuselan in Tamil. The role of a busy big star who happens to be a boyhood chum of a barber (Srinivasan) remains green in cinema viewers’ memory. But, the most interesting was the scene in No.20 Madras Mail directed by Joshi. In this flick, Mammootty appears as Mammootty, the big star, traveling in a train. He is courted by a drunken stranger, but a fan (Mohanlal). Mohanlal puts up an incredible acting in the role of an innocent but a wonderstruck fan blabbering in a drunker stupor to Mammootty, the megastar. Without betraying his annoyance, Mammootty, braves the drunken fan’s intrusion.

    In Balachandra Menon film `Chiriyo Chiri, Lenin Rajendran’s `Prem Nazirine Kanmanilla’, Hariharan’s Prempoojari, K.G.George’s `Lekhayude Maranam oru flashback’ are others. In Azakhiya Ravanan film Mammootty’s a film maker. In Mutharamkuttu PO Mammootty is presented obliquely. His voice is read out in letters. In Vinayan’s Boyfriends Mammootty is presented by dupes. All this apart, in Rasikan film Mammootty and Mohanlal become a cause for two fans’ fights—one backing Lal and the other, Mammooty.

    Former Miss India Nafisa Ali to play Mammootty’s mom

    2007/1/25 8:14:58

    Malayalam superstar Mammootty is now getting glamour personalities, including acclaimed pop singer Usha Uthup and former model Nafisa Ali, to play his mother.

    "In my last film 'Pothen Vava' Usha Uthup played my mother. Now in 'Big B' Nafisa Ali is playing the role," Mammootty said from the sets of "Big B" in Kochi.

    Former Miss India Nafisa Ali, 49, is acting in Malayalam films for the first time. She has acted in eight Hindi and other films, beginning with the acclaimed "Junoon". Nafisa, according to Mammootty, is a bit scared because of the language.

    "We are giving her enough support and now, believe me, she is doing a fine job," said Mammootty, 53.

    Ace cinematographer Amal Neerad, who was behind the camera for Mammootty's earlier film "Black", is directing the film. This is Neerad's first foray into direction.

    "The film is all about action and suspense and is a thriller. Nafisa is Mary John, an activist who takes care of children, and I am one of her four adopted children. The film will do well," said a confident Mammootty.
