The star is currently busy with the Malayalam movie Oru Yamandan Premakadha directed by BC Boufal, who will be making his debut. The film’s script has been penned by popular writer duo Vishnu Unnikrishnan and Bibin George.

It may be noted here that Dulquer also has the Bollywood flick Zoya Factor needing his attention. The film is based on the novel with the same title penned by Anuja Chauhan.
