Malayalam superstar Mammootty is celebrating his 70th birthday today
Mollywood megastar Mammootty is celebrating his 70th birthday today and wishes have been pouring in from stars across the industry including Mohanlal, Kamal Haasan and Tovino Thomas. Prithviraj Sukumaran, who completed the shoot of his directorial Bro Daddy on Monday, also posted a heartfelt message, wishing Mammootty.
Along with a photo more than a decade ago, Prithviraj said, “You have no idea how much you mean to me like you do to a zillion other dreamers and aspirants.” The actor also thanked Mammootty for his children – Dulquer Salmaan and Surumi – along with saying, “I love you… the world loves you”.
Prithviraj and Mammootty have shared screen space in One Way Ticket and Pokkiri Raja. The actor had also expressed his wish to direct the megastar soon with a script by Murali Gopy. Prithviraj’s two directorials – Lucifer and Bro Daddy – had Mohanlal in the lead.
During the pandemic, Prithviraj also formed a close bond with Dulquer. It was recently rumoured that Prithviraj could play a cameo in Dulquer’s upcoming film King of Kotha, which is directed by Abhilash Joshiy. While there has not been an official confirmation regarding this, we hear that there is space for a cameo in the script of the gangster action-entertainer, which could go on floors next year.
Mammootty, meanwhile, has wrapped up the shoot for Amal Neerad’s Bheeshma Parvam and will join the shoot of Puzhu next. The latter, which is directed by debutante Ratheena Sharshad, also has Parvathy in the lead. He also has CBI 5 set to begin shooting by later this year.
