Mammootty casts vote despite hectic filming schedule

Kochi, April 16 (Inditop) Malayalam superstar Mammootty took time out from shooting for his latest movie “Daddy Cool” to cast his vote here Thursday for the parliamentary polls since he believes that it is only by voting that one “becomes a part of the democracy”.
