Fazil last day in an interview said that now-a-days the new generation has a wrong notion among them that senior actors and directors are a liability to the industry or they don’t have much value now in our industry. But Fazil says that it is a wrong notion. He go specific with Mammootty in this matter. As he said that Mammootty is still a super star of mollywood and Fazil attracted the attention of everyone who believes that Mammootty’s star value has gone to the success of his latest film named Bhaskar The Rascal.
Fazil told that many of them disrespect senior artists and film makers through insulting comments but they don’t realize the fact that Mohanlal and Mammootty are the ones who still ruling the industry with talent and star value other can only dream of and senior film makers still have the ability to do better films than the so called new generation ones.
