malayalam superstar mammootty faces harassment for role in 2022 film 'puzhu'

A controversy erupted following a cyber attack targeting Malayalam superstar Mammootty and one of his films released in 2022. The actor has been facing online harassment from right-wing activists due to his portrayal of a character in the 2022 film titled "Puzhu".

The controversy erupted after the former partner of the film’s director, Ratheena, gave an interview to an online channel, stating that the film aimed to insult the upper caste, the Savarna. The legendary actor played the role of an upper-caste Brahmin who has an issue with his sister’s marriage to a lower-caste person.

The cyber attack, tinged with communal implications, highlighted Mammootty’s official name, Mohammad Kutty, questioning his secular credentials. Additionally, some right-wing pages called for boycotting his upcoming films.

The actor, who has appeared in more than 400 films, received support from various quarters. AICC General Secretary KC Venugopal stated that the secular society of Kerala would not cooperate, regardless of how much the Sangh Parivar attempts to label Mammootty, who possesses a clear political stance and acting sense.

"Mammootty is the first among the actors who gave Malayalam cinema an identity in world cinema with his acting excellence in a career spanning half a century.

When Malayalam cinema is going through the historical stages of its growth, most times Mammootty has been able to overcome the weaknesses by shouldering it all alone. Such personality cannot be tied to the framework of any religion or caste." he wrote on Facebook.

Minister K Rajan said "Mammootty is the pride of Malayalees and he will always remain so." "The Sangh politics of calling Mammootty as Muhammad Kutty, Director Kamal as Kamaluddin and Vijay as Joseph Vijay is useless here. This is Kerala," he wrote.
