Megastar Mammootty played the hero of both mother and daughter !
Mammootty is always young and people wonders how he keeps his youthfulness at this age of 65 years. But we have to admit the fact that he looks almost 20 years younger than his actual age. Now a rare thing had happened in his career as he had got the chance to be the hero of an actress, whose mother also played the female lead opposite him many years back. Yes, we are talking about Varalakshmi Sarathkumar who is playing the female lead in Mammootty’s upcoming film Kasaba. In Kasaba, Varalakshmi is not Mammootty’s pair but playing the female lead.
Almost 30 years before Mammootty had acted in a film named Makan Ente Makan in which Radhika Sarath Kumar was his pair. Radhika Sarath Kumar is the stepmom of Varalakshmi Sarath Kumar who is the daughter of Tamil movie actor Sarath Kumar. J Sasikumar had directed the film named Makan Ente Makan in 1985. Mammootty and Radhika had acted together in 1992 Telugu Film Swathi Kiranam as well. K Vishwanath had directed this movie.
Earlier Mollywood Super Star Mohanlal also got this rare chance in his career. In a film named Photographer, Saranya Bhagyaraj, the daughter or Poornima Bhagyaraj had played his heroine. Poornima had played the female lead opposite Mohanlal in many films in the 1980’s.
Mammootty also got the chance to play the hero of the actress who played his daughter earlier. The actresses who played his heroine later played his mother characters as well. This all shows his longevity in this field of Cinema.
