The star-studded evening began with the crowd chanting Mammootty’s name hoping that the event would begin soon, as the superstar came late. Amidst all the screaming, the show began with four visually disabled children putting up a Bharatanatyam dance performance. Many of the great names from the Malayalam film industry such as Manoj KJ, Vineeth Kumar, Rehman, MG Srikumar, Biju Narainan, Indrans, Harisri Ashokan and Gayatri to name a few, graced the occasion and some even consented to perform. Following a dance and a song by Biju Narainan, one child from Samarthanam performed a flute recital. As soon as the recital was over, a thundering recorded voice accompanied by amazing music boomed through the speakers introducing Mammootty while the lights and lasers went crazy. The audience could not stop screaming when all of a sudden their favourite star drove through the entrance in a red vintage convertible. Style indeed!
Addressing a cheering audience, Mammootty said, “Being in Bangalore is absolutely fantastic and to be here in front of so many people for a cause so good is heart warming.” He also read out a speech he had prepared in Kannada, which was received by the audience with an applause.
As the night progressed, the event continued with more songs, dances and comedy shows. The Malayalees present, stared star struck as the superstars performed right before their eyes.
