Actor Mammootty

Mammootty has had many great moments during his legendary career spanning over 35 years. And awards, whether they are national or state awards, are not new to him. As we move towards the year-end, looking back, the actor had probably the best year compared to others. Now, Mammootty has created a new, unparallel record by becoming the first ever actor in the history of Filmfare Awards to get nominated in the best actor category in three different languages in the same year. His performances in the movies Unda (Malayalam), Peranbu (Tamil) and Yathra (Telugu) have earned him the nomination. His fans and critics are eager to know if the actor would win all the three, elevating the master actor’s career to another level.

Mammootty already has more than 13 Filmfare Awards in his kitty.  

Ajay Vasudev, the director of Mammootty’s upcoming movie Shylock, revealed the news through his Facebook page. His character in Unda, Sub-Inspector Mani, was one of the best in the actor’s long career.

In Peranbu, he showcased once again the subtlety he poses while handling complex characters. The performance earned him many accolades, both from the audience and the critics. In Yathra, he portrayed former Chief Minister of Andhra Pradesh S. Rajasekhara Reddy.

The actor is hoping to end a great year on a high note with the release of the most awaited movie of the year, Mamangam, which will hit the screens in December.

Mamangam is all set to become the biggest Malayalam film in terms of budget and technical brilliance.   

Recently, a die-hard fan of Mammootty from Paravur changed his wedding date to avoid a clash with the release of the film. Originally shot in Malayalam, the movie will be dubbed into Tamil, Telugu, and Hindi.

Interestingly, it has been reported that Mammootty dubbed in ancient Tamil for his character in the film with the help of director Ram. Kavya Film Company’s Mamangam is directed by M. Padmakumar and produced by Venu Kunnappilly.
