Mammootty: I don't compromise on my religious belief

Malayalam Superstar Mammootty

Kochi: He is one of the busiest persons in the Malayalam film industry, but superstar Mammootty is not missing his Ramadan fast despite the workload.

"Acting is my job and at the same time I don't compromise on my religious belief, hence I do my job and carry forward my duty as a Muslim too. Over the years this has become a practice for me and I am quite fine doing both," Mammootty told IANS.

Currently he is shooting here for the film "Best Actor".

Directed by fashion photographer-turned-director Martin Prakkat, the film will see the superstar as a school teacher whose ultimate ambition is to act in movies.

Salim Kumar, Lal, Nedumudi Venu and Suraj Venjaranmoodu are also in the cast.

Mammootty's own firm Play House is distributing the movie, scheduled for an October release.

"Shooting is getting over and from here I move on to finish the bi-lingual Malayalam-Kannada film 'Shikari for which one round of shooting is over. The second and final round will be shot in Shimoga," said Mammootty who plays a double role in the film.

But the two characters never meet in the film.

With Onam overlapping with Ramadan, the release of Mammootty's "Pranchiyettan and The Saint" had been delayed. Directed by Renjith, the film will be released next week coinciding with the end of the fasting month and also his 57th birthday which falls on Sep 7.

Mammootty's last film "Pokkiriraja" has been a huge success and he hopes for the same success story from "Pranchiyettan and The Saint".
