mammootty

BJP state vice president A N Radhakrishnan has come out in support of megastar Mammootty, who has been the victim of cyber attacks and hate campaigns. Radhakrishnan wrote on Facebook that the great actor Mammootty has been an open book to the Malayali public for the past five decades.

In the note, he clarified that he has known Mammootty personally for decades and there is no need to associate an artist like him with any extremist ideas and agenda in the film industry.

Mammootty was subjected to cyber attacks and hate campaigns in connection with the film 'Puzhu'. It is after the film's director Rathina's ex-husband Shershad gave an interview to an online media, the hate campaign started against the actor. The cyber attack is alleging that the 'Puzhu' movie is anti-Brahmin, contains religious propaganda and that Mammootty is behind it.

Full version of Facebook post

Mammootty has been an open book in front of the Malayali public for the past five decades. He is an actor who has played all kinds of characters including Nair, Namboothiri, Nadar, Dalit, Muslim and Christian which are there in the political and social context of Kerala.

There is no need to associate an artist like Mammootty with any extremist ideology and agenda in the film industry.

I have personally known him for decades.

The director and writer of the film who gave an opportunity to throw mud at a great actor like Mammootty should answer this. So, people who try to take advantage of the art form like cinema with any agenda should be kept away.
