Director Abhaya Simha had narrated the story of the Kannada movie Shikari to Mammootty a year ago and the Malayalam superstar, who was eagerly waiting for an apt script to debut in Sandalwood, had found it interesting and agreed to act in the movie. Ever since then both the director and producer K Manju were excited and eagerly looking for the day of muhurtha of the movie.
Finally, the muhurtha of the film Shikari was held in Bangalore on last Sunday. It was really a grand gala event and besides popular Sandalwood stars, Mammootty was the centre of the attraction in the function. His presence had made K Manju the happiest man on the earth. He was on the cloud nine because he had become the first man to introduce the Mallu Superstar to Kannada audience.
Now, the excited producer is reportedly taking care of the superstar in all ways and trying to keep him at ease. He has provided all class one facilities to him to avoid the actor face any trouble in Bangalore. Sources claim that K Manju had bought a brand new Toyota FJ Cruiser car worth Rs. 24 lakhs and offered it to Mammootty to travel in Bangalore.
Director Abhaya Simha is also all excited to work with Mammooka. He is trying to find everything 100% perfect and he does not want to tolerate even small shortcoming on the sets because he feels that it is an insult to the Mallu actor. Recently, a set was raised with a whopping amount in Bangalore to shoot the movie Shikari. The director found a small mistake in the set. Irked by this, he postponed the shooting and order to recreate the set again.
Let us hope that Mammooka will have nice time in Bangalore.
