Dulquer Salmaan on a high after delivering back to back hits!
Dulquer Salmaan was on a low for some time with a forgettable 2019. While his Malayalam film ‘Oru Yamandan Premakadha’ settled for an average success, ‘The Zoya Factor’, his second Hindi film, tanked at the box office. However, the actor is now back on track after delivering back to back hits with ‘Varane Avashyamund’ and ‘Kannum Kannum Kollaiyadithaal’.
On that note, 2020 has started off with a bang for Dulquer. His first release was ‘Varane Avashyamund’ in Malayalam. The film which had him starring alongside the likes of Shobana, Suresh Gopi and Kalyani Priyadarshan has emerged as a huge hit raking in over Rs 25 crore at the box office. Its success was even more special for Dulquer as it was his maiden film as a producer.
As he was still basking in the success of ‘Varane Avashyamund, came his Tamil film ‘KKK’ that is turning out to be a sleeper hit surprising everyone. The film directed by debutant Desingh Periyasamy was in the making for over two years. Multiple delays in release and the absence of big names in team meant that the film had very less hype prior to its release.
However, on hitting screens last Friday, ‘KKK’ opened to positive reviews from all corners. It is far from a regular rom-com that was promised from the promos. By the third day, box office collections got tripled and the film is now well on course to become a superhit. After a slow start, it is now gradually picking up at the Kerala box office as well.
Going ahead, Dulquer Salmaan has some promising projects lined up for 2020. His next release will be the highly anticipated ‘Kurup’. He has also signed for a cop film with Rosshan Andrrews and a political flick with Joy Mathew. The actor has also committed for a straight Telugu film, which is expected to be announced shortly.
