During a recent interaction with a leading daily, Malayalam star Dulquer Salmaan opened up about his personal life and revealed that his dad/veteran actor Mammootty doesn’t interfere in his professional matters at all.
“Appa has given me full freedom. He doesn’t interfere in my work. Of course, I do have the responsibility of carrying on dad’s legacy in films,” he added.
He went on to state that he will never star in a remake of Mammooka’s films as he feels that classics should never remade.
“Leave alone appa’s, for that matter, I don’t think any of the old blockbusters should be remade. They will not go with the present changing trends and audiences’ taste in cinema,” said DQ,
Well, this is quite a sound logic indeed and we hope that DQ continues being the resident heartthrob of M-town for a long time to come.
On a related note, this is quite a busy time for DQ. He currently has ‘Solo’ in his kitty. Touted to be a romantic-drama, it is a Tamil-Malayalam bilingual and has been directed by Bejoy Nambiar. Besides DQ, it also features Bollywood’s Neha Sharma in the lead. A few days ago, Nambiar had praised DQ and said that ‘Solo’ will be a treat for his fans.
In addition to ‘Solo’, DQ also has the Savitri biopic in his kitty. He will be playing a character based on Tamil superstar Gemini Ganesan in this one.
