Few top stars get confined to only their region. There are many stars who rule their industry but stop short of expanding their horizons due to language problems. One among them is Malayalam Super Star Mammooty.
Though he got numerous offers in Tollywood, he rejected most of them due to language problems. Longtime back he did Surya Putrulu and then cast a magic spell with his performance in Swati Kiranam. Later only recently did Yatra, a film on former CM YS.Rajasehkar Reddy's padayatra.
Inside talk is mega-producer Allu Aravind contacted Mammootty with a crazy offer in Power Star Pawan Kalyan's film. He is said to have told him, "The film has a powerful villain character. It would be good if you do that role. What do you say?"
Mammootty gave a huge shock to Allu Aravind asking, "Will you offer a similar role to Chiranjeevi". When Allu Aravind said "No.. I cannot ask him" for which Mammootty shot back "Then why did you ask me".
Allu Aravind at once cut the phone call. Allu Aravind himself shared this shocking incident during Mammootty's Maamangam promotions.
