Blessy is one of the most bankable directors and scriptwriters in Malayalam today. His recent release Pranayam is a runaway hit. In his recent interview, the director-scriptwriter said that he never thought of becoming a scriptwriter at the initial stage of his career and it was megastar Mammootty who made it possible for him to be a scriptwriter.
“When I was doing my first film Kazcha, I had approached different people for scriptwriting. It was Mammootty who told me to write it the same way I had narrated the story to him. If it was not for him, I would probably not have known the taste of scriptwriting. We don’t just discuss films that I do with him. We talk about all my movies, be it Kazhcha, Thanmathra, Brahmaram or Pranayam. He is like a brother,” he said.
