Dulquer Salmaan’s interest in Cinema
More than wanting to be an actor, Dulquer Salmaan wanted to be a filmmaker. He was more interested in the technicalities involved in filmmaking. Salman even captured a short film with his father’s camera while he was in the eighth standard. He has made the domestic helper act in the film.
Though director Shyamaprasad offered him a role for the first time, Dulquer was reluctant and thought that he must first study the various aspects of cinema in detail and hence did a short-term course in film.
Dulquer Salmaan will soon be seen in the film Second Show. The film is being made by a team of youngsters, all eager to explore the medium.
Mammootty is obviously very proud of his son. While talking about his humble launch, Mammootty said, “I never got a premiere launch in cinema. During those struggling days, I was known as Mammootty, the son of Paanaparambil Ismail. It was only later that my father came to be known through me. Now, Dulquar is known as Mammootty’s son. If I am destined to be known as his father, let it be so.”
