Thiruvananthapuram, July 27 (IANS) Malayalam superstar Mammootty has rubbished speculation about him contesting the forthcoming Lok Sabha elections, saying that he is too busy with movies to enter politics.

'This is now become a habit ahead of any election in Kerala. Let me make it very clear that I do not want to rule the country, instead I want to rule the hearts of people through my films,' Mammootty told IANS Sunday.

Speculation was rife that the veteran actor, who has over 300 films to his credit, was offered either the Ernakulam Lok Sabha seat or the Ponnani seat in Muslim-dominated Malappuram district.

'It is true that many want me to enter politics, but I'm not interested because I'm very comfortable in the present job I have and my hands are full,' said Mammootty, who is currently shooting for 'Maya Bazaar' in Pollachi in Tamil Nadu.

His latest film 'Parunthu' has got a mixed response from audiences. The star said that people might not have liked him playing a character with negative shades. He portrays a cut-throat money lender in the film.

'Maybe some do not like me in such a role. But this is all part of the game. As far as an actor is concerned, Mammootty has done his job as he always does,' he quipped.
