Dear Mammooka, I am Writing this message closer to the release just to share my happiness and feelings on being a part of Mamangam and getting to make my debut with you in it. Honestly I was very new to everything down south when Mamangam came to me. I have grown 2 years older with this project. Mamangam journey has taught me way more in 2 years than what sports taught me in 10 years. I feel Sports has prepared me to be a part of this industry. I have grown mentally strong with whatever roller coaster of feelings I went through in last 2 years. It was very very tough for me in a lot of ways. I was so over whelmed with happiness that I just couldn’t control my tears since the time you entered the hall yesterday. It was a great moment for me. I might have not seen most of your blockbuster films. But the main reason for me to be another name added to your ever lasting fan list is for the great human being you are. You feel like family. I have closely observed you so much for me to be able to feel like that. And I didn’t know how to sum up everything in short on the stage and communicate it to you at that platform. I am fortunate and blessed. You will always be my inspiration in various ways. Thank you for being you. Loads of love, healthy and long life to you Mammooka ❤️ Fan Girl- Prachi . @redxmedia
