The megastar of Malayalam Cinema was shocked! An old man like Shahrukh Khan, half a century old had touched his feet in reverence in a Television Award function in Dubai. Hundreds of movie fans watched it in flesh and blood, millions watched it in Television. Mammootty would have cursed himself for attending the function; he might have dwindled like a worm. Mammootty was always releaved for his intelligent fans ignorance of his real age. Incidently, I asked my friend RL, a hard core Mammootty fan and a rare twenty first century innocent guy, about his idol's age. He replied confidently-" around 53-54, not more not less". Like RL a large number of people in Kerala believes that Mammoottty is a 53 year old young man. So when an old man like Shahrukh Khan, almost 50 year old man falls on his feet, what would his possessed fans think? What would an egostic-narcissist actor think?
