When he was asked how he wants the world to remember him, he replied, “But how long will they remember me? One year? Ten years? Fifteen years? Finished. Don’t expect people to remember you till the end of the world. That won’t happen to anybody. Great people are remembered very, very, very less. Only very few people are remembered. I am one among thousands of actors. How can they remember me for more than a year? There’s no hope for that. Once you are not in the world, how will you know about you? Everybody thinks that they are going to be remembered till the end of the world. No.”

Mammootty has been part of a number of exciting films recently, including Kathaal: The Core, Bramayugam, and last week’s Turbo. In Jeo Baby‘s Kaathal – The Core, the Malayalam superstar received universal acclaim for his performance as a queer character going through an ordeal.
