After Malayalam megastar Mammootty posted a list of people willing to provide accomodation to stranded people in Chennai on Facebook, the actor has been lauded by many social media users.

Can pick up people from nungambakkan station, arumbakkam metro station or anna arch, No restriction on no as i have lots of Mats to sleep, power for essential and enough food, brijesh - 9962400760".

Without noticing that it was a forward message and the help was put forward by a person named Brijesh, people started lauding the actor for being a good Samaritan for Chennaites.
