Dulquer Salmaan on entering Bollywood: I don’t think I want to play big fancy lead roles in Hindi films

During a recent chat with a leading news agency, Malayalam superstar Dulquer Salmaan opened up about his maiden Bollywood film ‘Karwaan’ and said that he does not want to do ‘fancy’ lead roles in Hindi films.

“I don’t think I want to play a big fancy lead role in Hindi films just for the sake of it. I would prefer to do interesting roles. If I get a memorable role, it would have a bigger impact than debuting as a lead in a film where nobody knows me,” he added.

Dulquer went on to add that he will take a call on his future in Bollywood based on how the audience reacts to ‘Karwaan’. He also said that Malayalam cinema would remain his priority regardless of his fate in B-town.

“Ideally I should focus on one industry, so Malayalam films will always be the focus point, Tamil will be second and then others. In Hindi films, I will take it year by year. I will see how Karwaan is received, if they like me. It is a sync-sound film, not like I dubbed for it and corrected,” added the star.

In case you did not know, ‘Karwaan’ is touted to be a light-hearted comedy and has been directed by Akarsh Khurana. In it, Dulquer will be seen alongside Irrfan Khan and Mithila Palkar. On a related note, this is a busy time for the young star. Besides ‘Karwaan’, he also has the Savitri biopic in his kitty.

So, do you think Dulquer will be able to make a mark in Bollywood? Comments, please!


    Dulquer is amazing! Bollywood doesn’t deserve him! Bollywood song and dance, over the top sets with no story line can never be compared to the simplistic and realistic beauty of Malayalam cinema!
    Infact , I feel Ranbir Kapoor, Rajkumar Rao, Sumeet Vyas, Ayushman Khurana with their amazing acting chops should try to work in Malayalam cinema their talent will shine through!
