Mammootty has been an actor who always supported the endeavours of fresh directors. You will be astonished to look at the names of directors who kick started a career working in his films, and indeed they are the ones who are reigning the industry now. Laljose, Amal Neerad, Blessy, Anwar Rasheed, Martin Prakkat, M Mohanan, Aashiq Abu, are the few successful names in the list and the actor is still in full spirits working with the new faces, though his recent films with freshers like Sonu Seenulal, and Babu Janardhanan has already created problems in his career.
The new movie from Mamootty with a fresh director is ';Jawan of Vellimala' directed by Anoop Kannan, an associate to Laljose. Having inspired from the story lines, Mammooty has even decided to produce the movie under his banner Play house. Telling a feel good story from James Albert in the backdrop of a dam, Mammootty will appear in twin avatars in the movie, which will also feature Sreenivasan, Mamtha Mohandas, and Asif Ali in important roles. The shoot for this Onam release has already started at Amballoor.
