Dulquer Salmaan to make Bollywood debut in a film alongside Irrfan Khan

Mahanati Star gets ticket to Bollywood

But Dulquer was mulling things over and taking his own sweet time to move into Bollywood, and we don't really blame him for that, considering how other South stars fared in the past in Bollywood. They even expected him to do that in the Hindi remake of OK Kanmani (which was later made with Aditya Roy Kapur in the lead as OK Jaanu).

Malayalam star Dulquer Salmaan, who has been part of blockbuster films, such as OK Kanmani, Bangalore Days and Charlie, is all set to make his debut in Bollywood. Abhishek Bachchan was originally supposed to play Salmaan's role, but he chose JP Dutta's war film Paltan instead.


The Bollywood film, directed by Akash Khurrana, is said to be a light hearted entertainer, with Dulquer playing a boy from Bengaluru. The movie will go on the floors in September.

Produced by Refex Entertainment in collaboration with Get Away Films, Solo also features Neha Sharma, Sruthi Hariharan, Arthi Venkatesh, Sai Dhansika as female leads. Now, the dialogue writer of Yeh Jawani Hai Deewani and 2 States, Akarsh Khurana is directing this interesting plot joining hands with Ronnie Screwvala. All in all, Mammootty could not find much success in Bollywood. On the otherside, Dulquer is eagerly waiting for the release of Malayalam-Tamil film Solo, directed by Bejoy Nambiar.
