Director K G George, who made cult films like Mela and Yavanika that were crucial in Mammootty's acting career, says that the star's behavior during the making of Elvamkode Desam prompted him to quit filmmaking.
In an interview with an online portal, George repeated certain charges against the actor, which he has expressed in the past as well.
George is regarded as one of the finest directors in Malayalam films, who stunned the viewers with his versatility. The director has lashed out against the so-called 'new generation' films and feels that this trend won't last beyond a point.
George was in the news recently with a documentary being made on his life and career titled Cinemayile Mattoraal, by Shahina Rafiq and Lijin Jose.
