Superstar Mammootty to walk the red carpet along at the ABIIF

Superstar Mammootty is going to share the same stage with Hollywood actor Richard Gere. The occasion would be during the Abu Dhabi International Film Festival, which starts on 11th October.

Mammootty first movie was Anubhavangal Paalichakal. In his career spanning over 3 decade he has acted in over 360 films. In 1971, in his first film, he had only a small role of a man running in a crowd. Since then he has come a long way. In fact in 2004, leading women’s magazine, Vanitha, made a survey which found him as the actor with the highest sex appeal.

Well another reason for us to cheer for the Abu Dhabi film festival is that, Sabana Azmi has been selected as one of the jury for this year’s film festival. It’s indeed an honor as the other members in the jury are stalwarts like, Iranian actress-director-screenwriter Niki Karimi, French director of Moroccan origin Ismael Ferroukhi, Czech producer Cedomir Kolar and Chilean director-producer-screenwriter-novelist Miguel Littin.

Among those who are part of the inaugural ceremony, is Mohammed Al Turki from Saudi Arabia, Nicholas Jarecki, director of ‘Arbitrage’ which will open the 10-day Festival and Iranian star, Golshifteh Farahani,

The Indians movies that will be shown are The World Before Her, Sujata, I.D. and Mumbai’s King (Mumbai Cha Raja).
