Malayalam star Dulquer Salmaan, the resident heartthrob of Mollywood, is all set to act in a Hindi movie and add a new dimension to his career. According to reports, DQ—as fans love to call him—will be entering Bollywood with a light-hearted comedy produced by Ronnie Screwvala. The film also features Irrfan Khan in the lead and will go on the floors pretty soon.

Confirming that DQ is actually entering Bollywood, a source said that his film will revolve around a road trip.

“It’s a light-hearted comedy that will see Dulquer and Irrfan as friends on a road trip. The film rolls by the month end in Kerala.” added the source.

Interestingly, the role was initially offered to Abhishek Bachchan. However, he could not accept the offer because of prior commitments.

As it so happens, Dulquer’s father and legendary actor Mammootty too had tried his luck in Hindi cinema in the 90’s. He made his B-town with ‘Dhartiputra’ which could not live up to expectations. His other Hindi release ‘Sau Jhoot Ek Sach’ too could not make an impact at the box office. All in all, Mammootty could not find much success in Bollywood. Let’s hope that DQ’s B-town innings proves to be highly successful.

On a related note, Dulquer will soon be seen in ‘Solo’. A romantic-thriller, it has been directed by Bejoy Nambiar and also features Neha Sharma in the lead. Besides ‘Solo’, he has the Savitri biopic in his kitty. The film features popular actress Keerthy Suresh in the lead.

      lmao, you’re talking like bollywood is on some next level. Sorry to break your bubble but movies made by your ‘northies’ aren’t that good. Dulquer is really good looking – more good looking than a lot of the bollywood actors so keep quite with your ignorant self. Meanwhile go and watch some great malayalam (south) movies like Premam, Bangalore Days, Drishyam ( oh wait you copied that one 🙂 ) etc, which are a 1000x times better than crappy films that bollywood distributes 🙂

        Many male southindian actors have tried and all of them failed miserably that’s because we’re not interested in them.Keep them with you in down south only. Btw we’re talking actors not the movies.

    Without knowing a single word of Tamil, I went to watch Ok Kanmani just because of Mani Sir. However, I was amazed by the sheer brilliance of Dulqueer’s acting. He is 10 x more handsome, poised and fresh, compare to majority of Bollywood star. He deserve great success in Bollywood.
