Mammootty and Sulfath, one of the most loved star couples of the Malayalam film industry are celebrating their 41st wedding anniversary today. As per the reports, the couple had a simple anniversary celebration this year with their immediate family members. However, Mohanlal made this anniversary very special for Mammootty and Sulfath, with his adorable post.
The complete actor, who shares a great bond with Mammootty and Sulfath, wished his dear Ichakka (that's how Mohanlal addresses the megastar) and bhabi by sharing a lovely pencil sketch of the couple along with a sweet note. 'Happy wedding anniversary dear Ichakka and baabhi @mammukka', wrote Mohanlal. Mammootty, on the other hand, retweeted Mohanlal's post with a thank you note. 'Thank you dear Lal 😊 @Mohanlal', wrote the megastar.
Here's a glimpse of Mammootty and Sulfath's love story. Have a look...
It was purely an arranged marriage for Mammootty and Sulfath, who were introduced to each other by their family members. The couple tied the knot in 1979, the same year in which the megastar made his official acting debut.
Interestingly, Sulfath initially refused to believe that Mammootty is acting in a film since he was practicing as a lawyer during their wedding time. Later, the megastar took the permission of his director to bring his wife to the sets of the movie for a day, to make her believe that he is indeed an actor.
Mammootty and Sulfath are blessed with two kids, daughter Surumi and son Dulquer Salmaan. Surumi, who has always stayed away from the limelight, is a painter and entrepreneur by profession. She is married to Dr. Rehan Sayeed and the couple has two kids.
Dulquer Salmaan, as we all know, is one of the leading pan-Indian actors of the contemporary cinema. He also launched his production banner recently. Dulquer Salmaan is married to architect Amaal Sufiya, and the couple has a daughter, Maryam Ameerah Salmaan.
Mammootty's Best Friend
Mammootty has always stated that his wife Sulfath is his best friend and pillar of strength. According to the megastar, Sulfath keeps him grounded. As the entire industry knows, the megastar makes sure that he reaches his home by evening if he is shooting in Ernakulam district, to spend time with his wife.
Sulfath's Bond With The Industry Members
For all of the Mammootty's colleagues, especially Mohanlal, Sulfath is their dear 'Bhabi' who treats them with yummy food whenever they visit the megastar's residence. For the young generation actors like Indrajith & Prithiviraj Sukumaran, Fahadh Faasil, Nazriya Nazim, and so on, she is 'Sulu Aunty', a motherly figure to them.
