Dulquer Salmaan’s Salute to be dubbed in Tamil and Telugu
Inspired by the success of ‘Kurup’, the makers of Dulquer Salmaan’s upcoming film ‘Salute’ are planning to dub and release the film in Tamil and Telugu as well. Directed by Rosshan Andrrews, the film promises to be a cop-investigative thriller. The director has previously helmed the Tamil film ’36 Vayathinile’, which was the remake of his own ‘How Old Are You’. Popular Tamil music director Santhosh Narayanan, who was the composer in ’36 Vayathinile’, is handling the music department in ‘Salute’ as well.
Scripted by Bobby-Sanjay, ‘Salute’ has Dulquer playing the role of a police sub-Inspector named Aravind Karunakaran in it. This is the first time the actor is playing a full fledged police role in his career. Bollywood actress Diana Penty of ‘Cocktail’ fame plays the female lead. Manoj K Jayan, Saniya Iyappan, Lakshmi Gopalaswamy, Alencier Ley Lopez, and Binu Pappu are essaying other prominent roles in it. Dulquer himself is producing the film under his banner Wayfarer Films. The makers are eyeing to release it on December 17 ahead of Christmas. An official announcement is still expected.
Meanwhile, ‘Kurup’ continues to do excellent business at the box office. In Tamil Nadu, the dubbed version has emerged as a sleeper hit.
