I feel hatred towards Mammootty, writes MB Padmakumar
Actor/director MB Padmakumar in his official Facebook account had recently written a controversial post about actor Mammootty which he later deleted. In the post, MB Padmakumar had written that he hates Mammootty for being part of too many commercial masala movies.
He has written that Mammootty is trying to do all sorts of gimmicky to forcibly stop his age and as a result he is wasting his karma to try and elevate Malayalam cinema to an international platform.
When Malayalam cinema arranged a felicitation ceremony to honour Resul Pookkutty after he won the Oscar award, Mammootty said that the foreigners will award Malayalam with an Oscar if they ever get to see the work done by a Malayali.
Padmakumar urged that Mammootty from the times of Ponthan Mada, Vidheyan and Thaniyavarthanam should return back. He should do away with the current trend and doing upper class Malayali roles and return back to his good old days atleast occasionally. Padmakumar concluded the post by requesting it as someone who loves both cinema and Mammootty.
Padmakumar has acted in several movies and television serials. His directorial debut My Life Partner finished second best in the 45th Kerala State Film Awards, and also won him the award for Best Lead Actor.
