Manmarziyan: Dulquer Salmaan in Anurag Kashyap’s next!!!
Dulquer Salmaan, easily the most popular Malayali actor outside Kerala, is slowly but steadily trying to gain a foothold in other industries. He is doing a couple of Tamil films next year along with making his entry to Hindi and Telugu industries. As per latest reports, the actor has bagged another huge project in Bollywood.
Dulquer will be playing one of the leads in a triangular love story to be directed by one of Indian cinema’s most celebrated filmmakers, Anurag Kashyap. Director/producer Anand L Rai is backing this film, which is reportedly titled as Manmarziyan.
The makers had already roped in Vicky Kaushal and Tapsee Pannu, and were on the look for the other character before getting Dulquer Salmaan on board. It is a triangular love story and is planned to go on floors in January. The movie has a winter setting and hence the makers have finalized Himachal Pradesh as the major location.
Anurag Kashyap is generally known for his gritty realistic films and this is his first attempt in making a love story. The director’s scores of fans across the country are much excited about him helming a romantic film.
Anand L Rai, who has scripted the movie, had initially announced the project with Ayushmann Khurrana and Bhumi Pednekar in the lead with Sameer Sharma as the director. However, it was shelved halfway before reviving with Ashwiny Iyer Tiwari. Eventually, the project has reached Anurag Kashyap’s hands and, as expected, has taken everyone by surprise.
Meanwhile, Dulquer Salmaan is waiting for the release of his Hindi debut Karwaan, directed by Akash Khurana. The movie also stars Irrfan Khan and Mithila Palkar in lead roles. Shoot has already been completed and is expected to hit screens by mid 2018.
