Mammotty like Actor Not Superstar

In a response to popular comedian Tini Tom's recent reference to Mammootty 'being the only real superstar in Mollywood', Mammootty said on his visit to Kochi that he prefers not to be called as a 'superstar'.

"It is indeed an honour to be called a superstar, but considering the accusations that are often inflicted upon superstars these days; I think I'd rather be called an actor. Superstars seem to be the cause of all the problems in our industry. In fact, the epithet has turned into an offensive term," Mammootty said.

It is noteworthy that the 'superstars' Mohanlal and Mammootty have been constantly blamed for the pathetic condition of the industry for several years and even accused of allegedly ensuring that no opportunities are given to the youngsters.
