Despite getting thumbs down for the Malayalam version of Shikari, Mammootty seems to be banking on his luck to turnaround the things in the Kannada version. The superstar, who is making his debut in Sandalwood with this forthcoming movie, believes that the language has been lucky for him and he wishes it works again.
Talking about Shikari, Mammootty has told a leading daily that Kannada language did wonders for him on earlier occasions. He has done the role of a Kannadiga in the movies Vidheyan and Chattambinadu. While the former bagged a National Award for his role, the latter became a superhit. He hopes that the the luck works this time too.
Mammootty will be seen in the role of a software engineer in Shikari. The movie directed by Abhaya Simha is produced by K Manju and it also features Poonam Bajwa and Aditya.
