Dulquer Salmaan is one of the few actors who are juggling between Malayalam and Tamil films successfully. He will also be making his debut in Tollywood with the Savitri biopic Mahanati/Nadigayar Thilagam, which is a trilingual being made in Telugu, Tamil and Malayalam simultaneously.
And now, the young star from Mollywood has signed another Tamil movie titled Kannum Kannum Kollaiyadithal. The first schedule of this romantic entertainer was shot in Delhi after which the team had moved over to Goa for the second schedule.
Reports state that the film's director Desingh Periyasamy is currently shooting some romantic scenes with the lead pair Dulquer and Ritu Varma.
Having made her debut in Baadshah in 2013, Ritu shot to fame for her role in Pelli Choopulu, which gave her a much-needed break in her career. Sources close to the film unit say that both Dulquer and Ritu will have equal scope to perform in the film. Ritu will next be seen alongside Vikram in Gautham Menon's Dhruva Natchathiram.
It may be noted here that debut director Desingh is an associate of cinematographer-director Vijay Milton, who has directed films such as Goli Soda, 10 Endrathukulla, etc.
Speaking about his ongoing project, the director said that Dulquer will be seen playing an IT professional in this commercial romantic entertainer. On choosing the title Kannum Kannum Kollaiyadithal, the director pointed out that the song from Mani Ratnamâ€™s Thiruda Thiruda happens to be his favorite and hence he decided on the name.
KM Bhaskaran, who had wielded the camera for Vallinam, has been roped in to handle the cinematography for Kannum Kannum Kollaiyadithal.
Dulquer, who is considered to be one of the most bankable stars in tinsel town, has a slew of films in his kitty including the Bollywood flick Karwaan, the trilingual Mahanati/Nadigayar Thilagam, and a couple of Malayalam films such as Oru Bhayankara Kamukan and Oru Yamandan Premakadha.
