Kicking up a controversy, director Mysskin has said he is in love with Mammootty and he would have raped the Malayalam top star had he been a woman.
He said this while lauding Mammootty for his performance in director Ram’s ‘Peranbu’. “You can keep watching Mammootty sir throughout this film. If he had been younger and he had been a woman, I might have fallen in love with him. Had I been a girl, I’d have raped him actually. Such a fabulous acting,” the ‘Thupparivalan’ maker said.
This has earned him strong criticism on social media. Sujatha Narayanan tweeted: “Is this even a worthy manner of appreciating Mammootty? What is so funny in #mysskin saying he would’ve raped #Mammootty had he been a girl? Role reversal?? Its not a compliment to either the mega star or any woman. Also – One can praise an actor without having to decry another.”
Meanwhile, the teaser of ‘Peranbu’ has been generating positive response. It had Mammootty trying to imitate his daughter and saying: “For someone who has lamented why my child couldn’t walk like other, I realised how difficult it is to walk like her only when I tried it. It was then I realised that it is a violent sin to ask someone why are you different.”
