Dulquer Salmaan picks Mammootty’s look in Samrajyam as his most favorite!
Dulquer Salmaan has to be the biggest fan of his dad, Mammootty. The youngster is full of admiration for his superstar father and talks about him in length in his interviews. In a recent chat with FC, when asked about his favourite look of Mammootty from all his films, Dulquer picked Alexander from ‘Samrajyam’. He is quoted saying, “As a fanboy, I’d say Samrajyam. His beard, set back hair, suits.. all were great.”
‘Samrajyam’ released in 1990 is a gangster film that enjoys a cult status among the Malayali cinephiles. The film directed by debutant Jomon was a huge success back then. Mammootty’s stylish getup as the underworld don Alexander and the iconic background score composed by maestro Ilaiyaraaja is hugely popular even today.
Bollywood superstar Amitabh Bachchan had even expressed his interest to remake ‘Samrajyam’ in Hindi. Director Jomon himself revealed this to Onlookers Media in a recent chat. Though talks regarding the remake were initiated, the project could not materialize due to various reasons.
