Why Mammootty took long gap in Tollywood?

Hyderabad: About 25 years ago, the Malayalam superstar Mammootty played a leading role in K Vishwanath-directed Swati Kiranam. This was the only straight movie he did in Telugu film industry. However, he became popular with Maniratnam’s Dalapathi, a Tamil dubbed movie. Despite several offers, the complete actor didn’t take up any movie as they’re not justifying his talent and image, said a source close to Mammootty.

“The reason for long gap in Telugu film industry was lack of a suitable story for me. After Swati Kiranam, no one approached me with a heart-touching story and character for me,” said Mammootty, while adding that recently he watched two Telugu movies — Rangasthalam and Bharat Ane Nenu.

Mammootty was offered the role that played by Saikumar in Prasthanam, but the Malayalam superstar didn’t want to act in a negative role. He was away from the Telugu film industry for a long because non-availability of proper characters for him.

Mammootty’s second straight Telugu movie ‘Yatra’ is slated for release soon. Mammootty is reportedly okayed two more Telugu movies and gave call sheets for 2019, he said.

Mammootty did 399 movies in a span of 35 years. Telugu audience know him with movies Swati Kiranam and Dalapathi. Yatra movie is a biopic on late Dr YS Rajasekhara Reddy, former chief minister of united AP. The movie focuses on the Dr YSR’s sensational padayatra that eventually took him to chief minister’s post. “It’s really heart-touching subject as it narrates how YSR interacted with people during his padayatra and how he tried to resolve problems of society,” added Mammootty.

Yatra : Why going back and forth on Jagan’s role

0

Yatra is touted to be a glorifying biopic on former Telugu Chief Minister YS Rajasekhar Reddy. Directed by Mahi V Raghav, the film has stalwart actor Mammootty stepping into the shoes of YSR.

Ever since the biopic has been officially announced, there has been a lot of buzz regarding YS Jagan Mohan Reddy’s role. Initially, the makers have locked Tamil star hero Suriya for Jagan’s role. Now, it is speculated that Suriya’s brother Karthi is in talks for the role.

The reason for this indecision is Mammootty as he is reluctant to cast a top star for Jagan’s role. Sources say that he is not in favour to cast a well known face in that character.

The makers are planning to wrap up Mammootty’s scenes first so that they will have more flexibility in choosing Jagan’s character.

If both Suriya and Karthi are out of the race, it is going to be Vishal Reddy who will reprise Jagan’s role. We have to wait for some more time to end the suspense on this role.

No clarity over inclusion of Mammootty in ‘Kaala’

0

The makers of superstar Rajinikanth’s Tamil film “Kaala” haven’t reacted to rumours about Malayalam megastar Mammootty being part of the project, which is being directed by Pa. Ranjith and produced by Dhanush.

Social media is buzzing with reports that Mammootty has been signed on to play B.R. Ambedkar-like role in the film.

Reacting to the reports, a source from the film’s unit told IANS: “I’m not at liberty to speak. It’s best if the makers react to such things.”

In the film, Rajinikanth plays a slum-lord-turned-gangster.

Huma Qureshi, Nana Patekar, Anjali Patil, Samuthirakani and Pankaj Tripathi play key roles.

The project marks the reunion of Ranjith and Rajinikanth, who had previously worked together in “Kabali”.

Meanwhile, several shooting stills have been leaking from the sets of the film on a daily basis. The makers are finding it extremely difficult to control the leak.

“We are currently shooting in Mumbai, and most of it is happening outdoors. With Rajini sir on sets, it’s extremely difficult to stop people from taking pictures. Thanks to technology, great pictures are taken even while standing hundreds of metres away,” the source said.

The film has music by Santhosh Narayanan.
