Dulquer confirms doing a straight Telugu film this year

Dulquer Salmaan has had an excellent start to 2020 by delivering two back to back hits, that too in two different languages. His February releases – ‘Varane Avashyamund’ (VA) and ‘Kannum Kannum Kollaiyadithaal’ (KKK) have both been lapped up by the audience. While VA has already crossed the Rs 25 crore mark at the box office, KKK is slowly picking up and is turning out to be a sleeper hit.

After reaping hits in Malayalam and Tamil, Dulquer is now set to do a Telugu film. The actor himself revealed this in a recent interview. He was in Hyderabad as part of promotions of ‘Kanulu Kanulanu Dochayante’, the Telugu dubbed version of KKK, when he confirmed doing a straight Telugu film this year.

Though the actor refused to divulge more details, it is said to be a big project backed by one of the top production houses in Tollywood. He will start shooting for the film in the second half of the year. Dulquer is already familiar with the Telugu audience thanks to the huge success of ‘Mahanati’, in which he played the role of late actor Gemini Ganesan.a
