Bollywood director Ram Gopal Varma has waded into controversy again by stating that the three time national award winning Malayalam actor Mammootty was a ‘junior artiste’ compared to his son Dulquer Salmaan.
After watching the latest Mani Ratnam film “O Kadhal Kanmani”, Ram Gopal Varma tweeted, “Mammootty’s son will make Kerala proud in the non-Kerala markets in just years which Mammootty couldn’t do for decades.”
“Mammootty is a junior artiste compared to his son”, he tweeted. “Just saw Mani Ratnam’s film and if the award committee members have any sense, they will take back all awards of Mammootty and give it to his son”, the director added.
Though Mammootty has not yet reacted, his son Dulquer tweeted, “In ten life times, I won’t be one millionth the actor my father is, no matter what I accomplish”.
