It’s been 48 years since Mammootty forayed into the film industry and has successfully emerged as the megastar over the years. In order to commemorate this achievement, Mammootty’s fans have started the fastest tweet marathon which carries the hashtag #48YearsOfMammoottysm. The specialty of this tweet marathon is that those tweeting should add a line or picture of the star. The hashtag marathon has become a huge hit with the number of tweets increasing every minute. Sources in the know say that the tweets will reach the 1 million mark in no time.

Mammootty’s first film Anubhavangal Palichakal was released on this day, August 6th 1971. Incidentally, he played an uncredited role in this flick with the lead characters being played by Prem Nazir and Sathyan.

The megastar currently has a number of films needing his attention including Maamangam, Ganagandharvan, and Shylock.

Directed by M Padma Kumar, Maamangam 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 valor. Evidently a historical film set in a different era, sources in the know say that Mammootty would be donning four different get-ups in this film. 

Mammootty has also completed shooting for his portions in Ganagandharvan. This has been confirmed by the film’s director Ramesh Pisharody through his Facebook page. He also shared the first look of the lead star which looks interesting. In the movie, Mammootty plays the role of a ganamela singer named Kaladasan Ullas, we hear.

And then there is Shylock, for which Mammootty and director Ajai Vasudev are teaming up for the third time. The film will have Meena playing the female lead with veteran Tamil actor Raj Kiran in another important role. Interestingly, the film will mark the debut of Raj Kiran in the Malayalam film industry.
