- Cochin, June.27 (NR): The Anti-Drugs campaign in the state has received a boost with the presence of Megastar Mammootty. The star would spearhead the Awareness Campaign that targets the youth in the state.
Mammootty who took part in the programmed organised by the State Excise Department at the Town Hall at Ernakulam on Sunday exhorted the young generation to stay away from drugs.
He talked of a man whom he had met in a jail five years back, who was undegoing punishment for having murdered his own son. Mammootty said that he was shocked on coming to know that the son, under the influence of drugs, had attempted to molest his own mother.
Mammootty also added, that the general assumption that only the use of alochohol makes an artist is wrong. That is no real art, he said.
The Excise Department is also planning a short film for the campuses that would have Mammootty carrying the campaign even further.
