Malayalam superstar Mammootty is a qualified lawyer who practised for two years before getting into cinema. So, stories of him donning the black robes to defend his colleague actor Indraja in court sounded half-believable.
However, when The News Minute contacted Indraja, she was bewildered by the story. "What case? I never went to court and Mammootty never appeared for me," she said.
According to media reports, Indraja has been fighting a case against her manager regarding some financial issues for the past two years and Mammootty stepped in to assist her. Indraja, however, flatly denies that there is any case.
"I don't know what case this is!" she exclaimed.
The actor, who has appeared in Telugu, Tamil, Malayalam and Kannada cinema, has starred with Mammootty in films like Chronic Bachelor and The God Man.
"Thank you for checking with me before putting up a cooked up story!" said Indraja.
Mammootty has played a lawyer in several films and is known for his fiery arguments in court scenes. The superstar could not be reached for comments and so, while we still don't know if he did indeed make a heroic appearance for some other colleague in court, we can tell you that Indraja wasn't involved!
