Veteran actor Mammootty’s passion for photography knows no bounds. Most of the actor’s clicks of celebrities in Mollywood have gone viral on social media. Now, the actor’s rare click of the Indian bulbul is winning praise at the three-day photo exhibition which began at the Durbar Hall Art Gallery in Kochi on Thursday. The event titled ‘Padiparakkunna Malayalam’ is being held as part of the birth centenary celebrations of the late Indian ornithologist and writer Induchoodan.
Mammootty’s click of a local bulbul is only one among the 61 pictures exhibited by 23 photographers at the event. The photo features a brown and red coloured bulbul perched upon some leaves against the background of a blue sky. The actor captioned the photo: A heart bubbling with joy and a restless tongue.
