Megastar Mammootty is possibly one of the most revered celebrities in the Indian film industry. Despite him primarily doing Malayalam films, Mammukka as hes popularly called by his fans, is revered in Kerala not just for his acting but also for his humanatarian nature. Another Bollywood actor who has a similar story is undoubtedly Salman Khan. He has an army of fans who stand by him through every thick and thin.
For the longest time, Salman had expressed his wish to do a film with Mammootty. He had said that he would love to share screen space with the megastar in a Malayalam film as well. But when we met Mammootty during the shooting of Mamangam, and asked him about the same, he had a very different but practical response to it.
Mammootty revealed, "I don't think he will ever do a Malayalam film. It's a tough language for him. Also, for a star of his charisma, we won't be able to afford him as a star here. For his kind of bigness, there's no big film we can make. Instead, I will do a Hindi film with him. that would be easier." But he expresses that generally Bollywood offers for him have dried up now. "I don't need to think about it. Bollywood should think. Long ago, I had got offers but now, nothing comes my way. If something interesting comes up, then of course, I'll do it," he concludes.
