Netherland actress Caroline Bech, who is playing female lead in Mollywood's forthcoming movie Manglish, has said that the lead actor and Malayalam's mega star Mammootty has made her feel very comfortable on the sets. The actress plays the tourist Michelle in the movie, which is being directed by Salam Bappu.
In her recent interview to leading daily Kochi Times, Caroline
Bech has said that she had a different image of Mammootty, when she
saw people falling for him. Later she understood the down to earth
attitude of the actor, which made her to feel very comfortable on
the sets of Manglish. She also said that it was totally a
new experience for her to work in the movie.
"I had neither heard about Kerala nor about any Malayalam actor,
leave alone Mammootty. In Holland, there's no stardom. You will
find an actor riding around on a bicycle and no one will bother. I
was taken aback seeing the madness people showed when Mammootty
stepped out. I was very nervous initially and thought that with so
much fan following, he would be arrogant. But Mammootty made me
feel very comfortable, cracked jokes and also explained certain
shots to me. In between he would also ask about Holland. To act
with Mammootty would be a dream come true for many actors and I
feel blessed I was able to do that," says the Caroline, who is
currently busy with the last bits of dubbing for the film.
