Mammootty is one the biggest Superstars of Malayali cinema and has a strong fan base in many South Indian states, as well as the Gulf countries. However, Mammootty took a break from acting and has instead tried his hand at photography during this lockdown. It is no secret Mammootty has always expressed his passion for photography and the ongoing lockdown seemed to have provided him with the perfect time to hone these skills.
In a recent photo posted on Instagram, Mammootty posted a picture of him sitting behind a camera with a zoom lens and clicking a couple of birds which visited his garden. Mammootty hails from the state of Kerala which is famous for its rich flora and fauna. The post is captioned “Morning guests ! #myphotography #oldhobbies #stayinghome #stayingsafe (sic.)”

Mammootty and his son and actor Dulquer Salmaan, moved into a new home which is by the banks of a lake in Kochi. The lake and the adjoining greenery means a lot of birds will be sighted and Mammootty is making the most of this time by pursuing his old hobby.
On the professional front, Mammootty awaits the release of the upcoming Malayalam political thriller, One. Directed by Santosh Vishwanath One, stars Mammootty in the role of Kerala’s Chief Minister. The first look of One was unveiled last November. The poster featured Mammootty wearing glasses, a white shirt, dhoti and seated on a chair. He was recently seen playing the role of a chief minister, after featuring as the late Y.S. Rajasekhar Reddy, the former Chief Minister of Andhra Pradesh, in the Telugu film Yatra.
