The actor has also turned 'reporter' from Hiroshima, explaining about the impact of the deadly atomic bombing that destroyed the city in 1945.

"Like Pallikal Narayanan, am a temporary pravasi now. Right now I am in Hiroshima, which is a small town in Japan that has a long history. During the World War II in 1945, America destroyed this place by dropping an atom bomb," Mammootty is heard saying in the video (translated from Malayalam).

"I am turning a reporter for you all from this place, which still preserves the remains of the deadly bombing. On 6 August at 8:15 am America's B-20 bomber was dropped to this commericial exhibition centre from a height of 600m and everybody inside the building died. But the building still remains as a memory of the bombing," the actor says, showing the remains of Hiroshima atom bombing in the video.
