It's been a while since Dulquer Salmaan had a release in Malayalam. The actor has been busy with Tamil, Telugu and Hindi projects. But fans from Kerala who've been missing him needn't worry. Dulquer is back with Oru Yamandan Prema Kadha.
The teaser of the BC Noufal directorial was released on Saturday. The video begins with Salim Kumar lamenting to Vishnu Unnikrishnan that there was no local to even sing for events, with Bengalis taking over the state - the snide anti-migrant sentiment has become something of a fixture in recent Malayalam films. And of course, local boy Dulquer is called to set the situation right.
The actor leaps into the frame dressed in a colourful shirt and black mundu.
Oru Yamandan Prema Kadha also stars Soubin Shahir, who has shot to stardom with successful films like Sudani from Nigeria and Kumbalangi Nights. Samyuktha Menon plays the female lead. The film has music by Nadirsha.
Dulquer Salmaan's last Malayalam release was Solo in 2017. The Bejoy Nambiar film, a bilingual which released in Malayalam and Tamil, failed at the box-office. In 2018, Dulquer had two other language releases, including the critically acclaimed Mahanati where he played actor Gemini Ganesan. The actor has two upcoming films other than Yamandan - Kannum Kannum Kollaiyadithal in Tamil and The Zoya Factor in Hindi, in which he's co-starring with Sonam Kapoor.
