Malayalam megastar Mammootty sustained minor injuries while shooting a fight sequence for his upcoming film Mamangam. The news was posted on Facebook by the film team recently. However, we hear that there is no cause for concern as the star is doing well.
Directed by Sajeev Pillai, Mamangam is a film based on the fair that was celebrated during 850 AD to 1755 AD in which warriors from different parts of the Malabar region came together to wage battles to prove their courage and valour. The festival was held on the banks of the Bharathapuzha in Tirunavaya.
Mammootty is playing the role of a peasant chaver (suicidal warrior) who is preparing to depart for ‘Mamankam,’ a duodecennial fair on the banks of Thirunavaya River in medieval Kerala. Mammootty will return to the sets of Abrahaminte Santhathikal later this week.The movie has a budget of Rs 50 crore. Apart from Malayalam, it will be dubbed in Tamil, Hindi, Telugu and English languages. A number of star actors including some Bollywood celebrities appear in the film. According to the director, the actor will appear in four different get-ups for the movie.
Reports indicate that Mamangam will be released in Hindi, Tamil, Telugu, and English as well. Being made on a high budget, the filmmakers are planning to have it released across the globe. Also, it will feature some of the top league Bollywood stars in pivotal roles, say sources.
