Joy Mathew's word:
'Basically, he is a good political observer and a member of a political party. He and I have had a lot of quarrels. When I go to his sets, he will tell me to spare the CM. To that, I'll reply that it is my choice and I'm a taxpayer. For that, he'll ask another question-Is no one else here a taxpayer? He'll then leave in a bad mood. Mammootty is very dear to Pinarayi. He doesn't like saying something or the other about Pinarayi
