Malayalam film superstar Mammootty Sunday geared up for a new role - that of a producer and distributor - with the inauguration of his production company named Play House.

The ribbon cutting ceremony of new company was done here by popular film personalities Siddique and Lal.

"The name of the company itself means theatre and hence it would be for both film and drama. Opportunities would be there for new faces in film and drama," Mammootty told reporters.

The actor has been one of the leading stars of the Malayalam film industry for the past 26 years and has put on the grease-paint in more than 300 films besides picking up three national awards for acting.

The company has lined up three films for distribution and one for production in which Mammootty will play the lead, the actor informed.

The first film to be distributed is Jayaram-starrer Kana Kanmani directed by Akku Akbar and the others films by award winning director Shyamaprasad and Lal Jose.
