Thiruvananthapuram, Dec 17 (IANS) Malayalam film superstar Mammootty, who has just returned from a two-day Dubai trip, Wednesday said that he had assured the full support of the Malayalam film industry to develop the Arabian cinema industry. “The Arabian film industry is a growing one and they need a helping hand in expertise and technical know-how. We have assured the support of the Malayalam film industry by conducting workshops there,” Mammootty, who was in the UAE city to attend the Dubai International Film Festival, told IANS.
The veteran actor said that he had held talks on conducting workshops with the ‘Studio City’ officials in Dubai.
Studio City in Dubai is part of the Smart City group that is to build the Rs.15 billion Smart City Kochi, a mega IT project that would create 90,000 new jobs.
“I had a detailed discussion with the CEO of Studio City and they will get back to us on the modalities of working together. If it clicks, it is going to be an additional work for the technicians of our industry here,” Mammootty added.
