Mayalam actor Dulquer Salmaanâ€™s fan following is growing with each film. It appears Kannada Superstar Shiva Rajkumar is his newest fan.
Lavishing praise upon Dulquer, the veteran actor said that though the Mollywood star made his debut just a few years ago, he has proved himself to be a brilliant actor.
Dulquer, son of the Malayalam mega star Mammootty, made his acting debut in 2012 with the film Second Show and since then has been churning out hits consistently.
A self-confessed fan of Malayalam cinema, Shiva Rajkumar spoke about his favourite Malayalam films in a recent interview. He said that his all-time favourite Mollywood film is Chemeen and he could never forget the roles etched out by Madhu and Sheela in it. Of the recent works in Mollywood that seems to have caught his attention is Angamaly Diaries, which was directed by Lijo Jose.
Apart from starring predominantly in Malayalam films, Dulquer made his debut in the Tamil films with Vaayai Moodi Pesavum and then went on to act in O Kadhal Kanmani, which was directed by ace filmmaker Mani Ratnam.
His last release Jomonte Suvisheshangal was a big hit and the starâ€™s Comrade in America is now in post production mode. The film is slated to hit the silver screens in May this year.
Interestingly, Shiva Rajkumar is currently busy working in the Kannada remake of Oppam, a Malayalam film that has Mohanlal in the lead role. The Malayalam film was directed by Priyadarshan and had Mohanlal, Samuthirakani, Nedumudi Venu, Anusree, and Vimala Raman in the star cast.
Having released on September 8, 2016, this crime thriller was one of the biggest hits in Mollywood. Produced by Anthony Perumbavoor under his banner Aashirvad Creations, the film had the story penned by Govind Vijayan.
Shiva Rajkumar is currently busy with a number of projects including Bangara s/o Bangarada Manushya, Leader, The Villain and Mufti, which are all in various stages of production.
