Mammootty Thrilled About ‘Pazhassi Raja'
Ace Malayalam actor, Mammootty, has revealed that he is not only thrilled but also has huge expectations from his forthcoming historical epic movie, ‘Pazhassi Raja’. This movie has been dubbed in three languages.
"Of course, I'm really waiting for it because it is one Malayalam film which is likely to have a national release as it is dubbed in Hindi, Telegu and Tamil. Lot of hard work has gone into the film by each one associated with it," Mammootty told.
Even though the actor has taken up fasting for the holy month of Ramadan, he is still working round the clock.
"Rain or sun, I have a job in hand and I do it with all my sincerity. Right now I'm driving towards Chennai to complete the dubbing of the Tamil version of 'Pazhassi Raja'. Due to lack of time I'm not doing the Telegu and Hindi dubbing," said Mammootty.
The movie has been scripted by ace Malaylam writer, M.T. Vasudevan Nair and directed by Hariharan. The plot of the movie lies in18th century and is about Kerala Varma Pazhassi Raja of the Padinjare Kovilakom of the Kottayam family. The movie is scheduled to hit the theatres in September.
After a gap of 20 years, Nair, Hariharan and Mammootty have come together for the film. The trio last time teamed up for "Oru Vadakkan Veeragatha" and created magic on celluloid. The film fetched the actor his first of the three national awards.
"Since I'm the hero of the film, I will certainly be involved in all sort of promotion of the film. This is the first Malayalam film which will have a national release and of course, I'm excited. But I'm certainly being apprehensive too, because too much expectation is not a good thing," said Mammootty.
"Resul Pookutty has designed the sound and we were together last week and he too appears to be happy. Anyway, now we will wait," said Mammootty.
