Is this Mammootty's success mantra?


Megastar Mammootty has always been known for his versatility.

After a brief appearance in the 1971 film 'Anubhavangal Paalichakal' and in the 1973 film 'Kalachakram', Mammootty's career officially took off with 'Vilkkanundu Swapnangal' in 1980. Since then, he has showed his calibre and versatility with a repertoire of over 400 films.

What's his success mantra? Is he competitive as an actor?

"I don't compete with others... You need to compete with yourself. It is easy. If you compete with others, you mime them. If you compete with yourself, you can do it easily."

Talking to IANS, Mammootty also revealed that he has no plans to start a political career. He says one doesn't need to be in politics to serve people.

"I don't think I will (ever) have much interest in politics," Mammootty told IANS. "I (am not interested) in political activities. You don't need to be in politics to serve people," he added.

Mammootty will next be seen in M. Padmakumar's 'Mamangam', which will narrate a true story around the medieval festival of Mamangam. He will be seen playing a mysterious character with multiple looks.

Said to be the biggest Malayalam film in terms of the budget and expanse, the project showcases the martial art of Kalaripayattu.

The project, scheduled for later this year, will release in Malayalam, Tamil, Telugu and Hindi.
