Malayalam superstar Mammootty, known for his benevolence, spent time with a group of tribals on Saturday and promised them help for a better quality of life.

The meeting between the actor and the group of tribals, hailing from the Kundalakudi colony in interior Munnar, was facilitated by the Janamaithri police.

It took place in Thodupuzha, about 100 km from the tribal hamlet, when the actor took out time in between the shoot of his film Parole directed by Sharath Sandith.

The group of tribals came with an offering of organic vegetables, grown in their homesteads, which included carrot, pumpkin, butter beans and cabbages.

The 66-year-old superstar expressed happiness and told media that he would do his best to provide some sort of tele-medicine facilities where through video conferencing medical professionals would be able to provide advice to the tribal community.

He also said that he would try to engage a tutor to teach Malayalam to the young members of the community, as they are currently studying in Tamil medium.

In 2012, Mammootty had visited this interior tribal colony and interacted with them.
