MAMMOOTTY [Dec. 9th, 2007|01:22 pm]

Last night we had just one customer in First, a well-known Indian film actor named Mammootty. All the Indian crew members flocked to the front to meet him, and passengers from other cabins begged to meet him as well. I didn't know who he was (I called him "Mr. Mammootty" all night, but seems he's just "Mammootty"), but he was super charming. Now I come home and google him, and learn he is involved with more charities than I have digits, and he's played over 300 lead roles.

This is a digicam picture of a polaroid, taken after he'd just woken up and I'd been up all night - and was talking. Please remind me not to talk while my picture is being taken.

What did you tell the passengers who wanted to meet him? Does Emirates have a policy on acceptable harassment levels for celebrities?

Haha, that's awesome. I grew up on his stuff as a kid. Most Malayali actors of his ilk end up becoming Chuck Norris-like caricatures though. :)

yeah, i'd sat he's the south indian version of Big B: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Amitabh_Bachchan

I could spend two weeks in my grandparents home and run across atleast 2-3 movies on the tube that he's leading.

ps: you have some perfect teeth, i'm envious! :D

Neat! Not that I have any idea who he is, but fun to meet someone famous and not have any expectations to be dashed!

with a 'stache and chest hair like that, he is the embodiment of the manly man.

I totally didn't realize that was you until I read the last part of your post. Awww, you look great! How nice of the guy to take a picture with you when he's all groggy.

Yeah, he and I were going to do a major Hollywood release, but funding fell through at the last minute and I had some other prospects pop up, so I had to move on. But, that's how it goes when you're a famous actor. You'll be able to read all about it in my upcoming biography. Cheers!
