Kochi: Malayalam superstar Mammootty is very busy -- but not with movies. He has taken a break from acting to make preparations for the marriage of his actor son Dulquar Salmaan with A Sufia, an architect.

"Yes, I am busy with the wedding and we are all leaving for Chennai Friday. The marriage is in Chennai on the 22nd of this month," Mammootty told reporters.

He added: "Yes, I have taken a break from my job and there will be a reception here on the 26th December and I will rejoin my work on the New Year," said Mammootty known for keeping his family life away from prying eyes of media.

After giving a thought, Salmaan followed his father`s footsteps and he has just finished the shoot of his first film ‘Second Show’.

It will not be the usual `filmy wedding`.

Sufia is the daughter of Syed Nizamuddin, who hails from north India, but is settled in Chennai.

The release of Mammootty`s latest film ‘Venice le Vyappari’ got delayed, but it is not expected to hit the theatres on the day of his son`s wedding.
