Mammootty suffered a big scare when a bus crashed into his car along the route from Aroor to Ernakulam. Neither the actor nor the occupants of the car suffered any injury but the car sustained a lot of damage. The police arrived on the scene and wanted to arrest the bus driver for reckless driving.
The driver appealed to Mammootty and apologized profusely. Mammootty agreed to let him go and declined to file a case as it was an accident and nobody was hurt. The Malayalam superstar was returning from a shoot for the film, Venicile Vyapari.
