One fine, handsome morning film-maker Shyamaprasasd telephones Benny Kuriakose. “Actor Mammootty is going to call you in five minutes. He is planning to build a house in Chennai,” conveys the renowned Malayalam film director to the then budding architect. The next day Kuriakose finds himself, startled and silent, wandering through the sets of a film shoot in Chennai. Mammootty meets him on the set, briefs him about the plan of the house he has in his mind and the duo extend the architectural discussion late into the night after the shoot.
And thus began the professional relation between them whose strong, warm bonds is sustained even to this day.
This Malayalam article published in Parpidam Magazine details the sustainable, eco-friendly design for Mammootty’s Chennai residence conceptualised and developed by Benny Kuriakose, with the former opening up on some interesting, light-hearted experiences he shares with the legend.
