I’m enjoying my new found profession: Mammootty’s sonApril 13th, 2012 - 3:02 pm ICT by IANS
Kochi, April 13 (IANS) Dulquar Salman’s debut film “Second Show” did reasonable business at the box office, but it hasn’t stopped filmmakers to offer films to the youngster. The young actor, who is Malayalam superstar Mammootty’s son, is happy with his profession and the way his acting career is shaping up.
Speaking to IANS, Salman, who used to look after his father’s money matters before taking up acting, said his second film “Ustad Hotel” will be completed in a week’s time and then he will move on to the next one.
“I am excited about ‘Varsham’, my third film. The film’s shooting will begin shortly. It’s a love story, which will be shot here. The director is a new face, Kannan, and the search for the female lead is going on. Kannan has co-written,” said Salman.
He will also do director Martin Prakkat’s film.
“All in all, things are fine and I am enjoying my new found profession. A few other proposals are also in the pipeline, including a film by one of the country’s leading director,” said Salman, a graduate from the US. Before turning a professional actor, he was looking after his father’s money matters.
When asked about his father’s latest film, “Kobra”, which hits the theatres Friday, Salman said that it will be a fun film.
“Yes, of late, a few of his films did not do the expected business, but with his new release, things are going to change. I saw the film last night and it looks good and an entertainer,” said Salman, and added that his father is right now in Qatar.
What about a probable role alongside his father?
The 25-year-old laughed and said: “I am in no hurry.”
The actor, who last December married A. Sufia, an architect by profession, lives with his parents here.
