Mammootty slams Filmfare awards

Mammootty slams Filmfare awards

Mammootty, the mega star of Mollywood who needs no introduction in Kollywood, has expressed his unhappiness over the recently held Filmfare awards ceremony.

The Thalapathi and Anandam actor, who received the Best Actor award at the 63rd Filmfare Awards for his performance in Pathemari, was on Ramadan fasting and had informed the organisers that he had to collect the award and break his fast.

But it is said he was forced to stay till midnight to collect his Best Actor trophy. Mammotty said that the award was supposed to be handed over to him on June 18th but he had to wait till June 19th morning to get the black lady in his hands! Mammootty also took a dig at Filmfare by saying that he received the award in front of empty chairs, as many left by the time he was called to the stage.

The best talents across the four southern industries — Tamil, Telugu, Malayalam and Kannada — were felicitated by Filmfare on Saturday.

The event, hosted by Chinmayi and Rahul Ravindran, and held in Hyderabad, witnessed energetic performances from actresses from the four southern industries.

In Tamil, while Vikram-starrer “I” pocketed four awards, while Jayam Ravi’s “Thani Oruvana and Dhanush’s “Thangamagan” bagged two awards each. Vignesh Shivan-directed “Naanum Rowdydhaan” and critically-acclaimed “Kaaka Muttai” won an award each.
