Mammootty's 1993 Bombay, March 12 was earlier scheduled to release on June 24 and the movie is being distributed by his Play House. But the actor delayed the movie release by a week after he came to know about the release of Adaminte Makan Abu, which is distributed by his friend Salim Kumar's Laughing Villa.
It could have caused a big loss to Salim Kumar, if both the films 1993 Bombay, March 12 and Adaminte Makan Abu had released on the same date. Although Mammootty had booked the cinema halls well in advance, the Megastar delayed his movie to avoid his friend Salim suffering financial loss. Hats off to Mammootty.
Adaminte Makan Abu has recently won the National and State Film Awards and its screening was banned following its producer's complaint against the director. It was reported earlier that the movie would be distributed by Mammootty's Play House. Now, sources claim that Dileep is helping Salim Kumar to get the theatres in Kerala.
