Dulquer Salmaan reveals that he was offered a transgender role similar to that of Vijay Sethupathi in Super Deluxe
In his 8-year-old career in which he worked in multiple languages, Dulquer Salmaan has often dared to experiment. Be it the freespirited vagabond in ‘Charile’ or KTN Kottoor in ‘Njaan’ or the four contrasting characters in ‘Solo’ or Gemini Ganesan in ‘Mahanati’, Dulquer has always shown interest in trying something new. However, there is something that he is not sure he can pull off — playing a transgender.
In a recent interview, while talking about Vijay Sethupathi’s stunner of a performance as a transwoman in ‘Super Deluxe’, Dulquer himself revealed that he was once offered a similar role but he denied it as he was not very sure if he could do it convincing.
He is quoted saying, “I once got offered a transgender role, but I was not sure. There are some things you think as an actor you might not be able to do l convincingly. I think I should explore my feminine side little more before doing something like that.”
Dulquer is currently basking in the success of his maiden production ‘Varane Avashyamund’, that stars him along with Shobana, Kalyani Priyadarshan and Suresh Gopi. His Tamil film ‘Kannum Kannum Kollaiyadithaal’ is also gearing up for release this Friday.
