Mammootty’s The Great Father enters the 50 Crore club
Finally, a Mammootty movie enters the prestigious 50 Crore club. The megastar himself confirmed this big news, by sharing a poster that claims that the movie has grossed over 50 Crores worldwide, through his official Facebook page. The movie has reportedly grossed more than 30 Crores from Kerala itself and collected over 10 Crores from GCC within 3 days of its overseas release. According to producers, The Great Father is the fastest Malayalam movie to collect Rs 20 Crore from the box office. However, many box-office analysts have raised doubts over the authenticity of this claim by producers.
The Great Father written and directed by debutant Haneef Adeni features Mammootty in the lead role and Arya, Kalabhavan Shajon, Deepak Parambol, Sneha, Baby Anikha and Miya George in supporting roles. Prithviraj Sukumaran, Arya, Santhosh Sivan and Shaji Nadesan jointly bankrolled the movie under the banner August Cinema.
