Jayan, Peter Handley Evans and Harry Key play pivotal roles in the film which has music by maestro Ilayaraja and songs penned by poet O.N.V. Kurup.


Mammootty says politics not his cup of tea

Thiruvananthapuram, March 22 (IANS) Malayalam superstar Mammootty, who considers himself a “liberal Leftist”, has said that he was neither interested in entering politics nor predicting the election results as he is a busy actor and not a politician.

“Astrology is not my business and since I am not into politics, I will refrain myself from saying something that I don’t know. Ask me about my profession and I will reply,” Mammootty told IANS over phone from Kochi when asked about his views on the coming Lok Sabha polls.

“Let it be over and I will tell you,” he added on a lighter note.

Questions are often raised about the superstar entering politics as he is the chairman of Kairali TV, a channel promoted by the Communist Party of India-Marxist (CPI-M).

Mammootty, who is busy shooting for family entertainer “Daddy Cool” in Kochi, said three of his films are ready for release and he is equally upbeat about all three.
‘Pazhazzi Raja’, ‘Patanthil Bhootham’ and ‘Kutti Shranku’ are all different in treatment and the audience can expect a good experience. Similarly, my hands are full for the rest of the year too. So right now I am fully occupied and I do not have the time to think of anything else,” Mammootty said.

Pattanathil Bhootham Stalled

Ee Pattanathil Bhootham, which has Mammootty playing the hero, was in trouble recently. This time it was van drivers of the Pollachi region. The van drivers in the Pollachi area in Tamil Nadu created a stir yesterday stalling the shooting of the Malayalam film E Pattanathil Bhootham. The van drivers in that area had been stressing that local cars and vans must be rented and no vehicles from outside should be permitted. However, the crew from Kerala did not heed to their requests and this was apparently the
cause for the rouse. On the intervention of the police and their assurance the van drivers were pacified. Following the incident the shooting resumed.
