think each and every person in Kerala today is busy celebrating
Onam, the ultimate festival for all Malayalees all over the world,
you are mistaken! Of course, there will be many who cannot
participate in the colourful celebrations due to many reasons,
mainly physical. But what do you say if superstar Mammootty does
not join the celebrations due to an avoidable, petty reason: too
busy schedule shooting! We can only say, "Alas!"
Mammootty, who is now busy shooting for his upcoming venture
Maya Bazaar, says that he has so much work that he can't
think of taking a break during this festive season. "Yes, I am on
the Ramzan fast, but I just cannot afford to sit idle on this
pretext. Even on Friday, which is Thiru Onam day, the most
important day for all Keralites, I am busy shooting," Mammootty
Mammootty, who turned 55 last Sunday, was able to spend time
with his family, only because the shooting of the film was taking
place in his hometown. Don't you think that is a little too much?
Apart from Maya Bazaar (directed by Thomas Sebastian)
scheduled to release for Ramzan on October 1 or 2, Mammootty is
also busy shooting for internationally-acclaimed director Shaji N.
Karun's Kuttyshranku and his much-anticipated magnum opus
Pazhassi Raja, a historical film about Kerala Varma Pazhassi Raja,
being directed by Hariharan. Mammootty's other projects include
Rafi-Mecartin duo's Love in Singapore and debutant director Aashiq
Abu's Daddy Cool.
