Director Ranjith opened up about megastar Mammootty’s dedication to the movies. In an interview with Mathrubhumi Star and Style, the director revealed one of his best experience while working with Mammootty.
Talking about Mammootty, the director stated that the mega star is like an elder brother to him.
“After completing ‘Ravanaprabhu’, I shared the thread of my movie ‘Kaiyoppu’ with Mammotty and Siddique. When I told him that I am planning to shoot the movie in a low budget, he asked me that how many shooting days were needed for the lead role Balachandran. I replied to him that I won’t be able to meet his remuneration. He responded that he only wanted to know about the number of shooting days and not his remuneration. Surprising me, he arrived for the shooting without taking remuneration and also no demand for transportation expense. Within 14 days, we completed the shooting,” Ranjith narrated his experience with Mammootty.
Ranjith also revealed that Mammootty acted in his another movie ‘Paleri Manickyam’ as a loyal friend without any invitation.
