\If you are a fan of Mollywood heartthrob Dulquer Salmaan, then we have some awesome news in store for you. In an exciting development, the makers of his eagerly-awaited maiden Telugu film ‘Mahanati’ have released a new pic and made the wait for it even more difficult. In it, DQ can be seen as Gemini Ganesan as he stands with his back to the camera. And, needless to say, he carries off his suave avatar like a boss. We are sure, he’ll do a good job of bringing ‘Kadhal Mannan’ to life on the big screen.
In case you did not know, ‘Mahanati’ has been directed by Ashwin Nag and is based on the life of yesteryear star Savitri. In it, Keerthy Suresh will be playing the main character. Interestingly, some time ago, DQ had told a leading website that he will not be mimicking Gemini Ganesan on the big screen.
“I’m not going to look like him. I can’t, honestly, and I don’t want to wear prosthetic. My approach is simple. I would like to be me in the 1950s and play myself if I was a big movie star. I don’t think I should attempt to play Gemini Ganesan, and the director also agreed. You don’t really have any off-screen footage of him. You don’t know what kind of person he was off screen,” he had added.
On a related note, this is a busy time for Dulquer. Besides ‘Mahanati’, he also has ‘Karwaan’ and ‘Kannum Kannum Kollai Aditha’ in his kitty. ‘Karwaan’ is the first Hindi film of his career and is touted to be a light-hearted road drama. In it, he will be seen alongside Irrfan Khan. As far as ‘Kannum Kannum Kollai Aditha’ is concerned, it is a Tamil film and also features actress Ritu Varma in the lead.
