Dulquer Salmaan will be seen as a Bengaluru-based Guy in his Bollywood debut movie
Finally, Dulquer Salmaan is going to make his debut in Bollywood with a movie directed by Akarsh Khurana. Ronnie Screwvala is bankrolling this movie.
In this yet-to-be-titled movie, Dulquer is playing the role of a Bengaluru based guy who is sweet yet serious kind of person. This movie will be a realistic comedy.
Along with Dulquer, the movie will also have Irrfan Khan and Mithila Palkar in lead roles. These three characters are from different walks of life who come together at one juncture of their lives.
There were some unconfirmed reports that Abhishek Bachchan was originally offered Dulquer’s role, but was opted out due to date clashes.
Anyway, the director Akarsh Khurana also revealed the reason behind choosing Dulquer for this role. “I have been following Dulquer for a while after Mani Ratnam’s O Kadhal Kanmani. And I really loved his movie, Charlie. He has showcased a fantabulous performance in it. Then I watched his movies, Bangalore days, Kammattipaadam and so on…He is the perfect cast for the movie.”, said Akarsh as quoted by Times of India.
This Bollywood flick will also be the debut directional venture of Akarash Khurana. Akarash is a theater personality and he earlier wrote dialogues for Bollywood movies like Jawaani Hai Deewani and 2 States.
The story of this movie written by Akarsh Khurana and Hussain Dalal.
Director Akarsh Khurana told to Times of India that there will be no romantic connection between characters played by Dulquer and Mithila Palkar in the movie.
The movie will start rolling by end of this month in Kerala.
