With the first posters of Malayalam superstar Mammootty’s upcoming film “Kasaba” being released on Sunday, fans on social media went wild.
The fervor has been all the more intense because Mammootty returns to his favoured ground, once more donning the uniform of a police officer. The actor has played a police officer in over 15 films thus far.
But with fans in such a frenzy, could the trolls be far behind?
In the poster of the film, which is due for release on July 7, the actor is seen lounging on the front of a police jeep.
While Mammootty fans went all out to support their favorite actor on social media, they were also taken by surprise as a number of trolls took the actor’s officer mystique apart with some sarcastic memes.
Almost the first thing the trolls picked up on was that minus the red wig and funky clothes, Mammootty looked much like the Ronald McDonald that sits outside each outlet.
Then there were those who thought Mammootty was trying (and failing) to pull off Ajith’s white couch look from “Billa”
From the Mammootty on a clothesline, hung out to dry, to the scarecrow Mammootty out in the fields, most trolls were satisfied to just have Mammootty hanging out in all kinds of compromising positions.
