Dimple Kapadia has expressed her desire to do a full length Malayalam feature film with superstar Mammootty. “I like Mammootty a lot and if I’m offered another Malayalam film, it will have to be a full length feature film and I would like to act with him again,”

Kapadia said at the preview show of her debut Malayalam movie Bombay Mittai, in which she has a small role alongside former Samajwadi party leader and Amitabh Bachchan’s family friend Amar Singh. “In this film, I had five scenes, out of which two were cut out, but nevertheless I enjoyed my time in Kerala. I was so tensed when I got the offer to act in this Malayalam film. I had to do a lot of homework to get my part right,” she says.

When asked what would she like to work on in her next Malayalam film, Kapadia says, “I would like to do a role that has something to do with mysticism or even a supernatural one.”

The actress is all praise for the content used in Malayalam movies. “I simply love Malayalam films because they do great cinema and there is a whole lot of effort that goes into it. Of course, I do watch Malayalam films, but please don’t ask me, which are the ones that I saw.”
