Throwback - When Mammootty had to console a weeping Shobana

3 big names of south cinema had joined together for another big name 3 decades back- we are talking about 1991 Mani Ratnam film Thalapathi which starred Rajinikanth, Mammootty and Shobana. An interesting incident happened on the sets of this classic. Shobana who was a 20 year old back then was shooting continuously for 2 months was feeling homesick and wanted to visit her family. The director disagreed to this and asked her wait another day to complete  a song sequence. But the unavailability of other actors forced Shobana to wait further and the young lady broke down on the sets. Mammootty who happened to see the weeping heroine went up to her and consoled her. We know how iconic the film was - hardwork pays!
