Dulquer Salmaan Talks About Equality In Show Business

Mohnish Singh |Nov 29, 2019

Dulquer Salmaan, who was last seen in The Zoya Factor alongside Sonam Kapoor, is the son of Malayalam superstar Mammootty.

Dulquer Salmaan is a well-known South Indian superstar who has impressed everyone with his work in Malayalam cinema. In the past two years, he has also built a small fanbase among the audience who primarily watches Bollywood movies. The actor made his Hindi film debut with the Akarsh Khurana directorial Karwaan (2018), co-starring Irrfan Khan and Mithila Palkar. The audience loved his performance in the moderately successful film. Dulquer Salmaan was most recently seen in The Zoya Factor (2019) which had Sonam Kapoor playing his love interest.

For the uninitiated, Dulquer Salmaan is the son of Malayalam superstar Mammootty, but the actor claims that he never gets star-like treatment on sets. The talented actor believes in equality and likes to work with filmmakers who are progressive and treat actresses and actors equally.

While one would believe that the South Indian film industry is male-dominated compared to Bollywood, Dulquer Salmaan does not agree with it. “I don’t think I have got any special treatment either. I was given call time even before the unit was there during my initial days. So, I have been on to sets early, so I have been there and done that. I have worked with progressive directors and they only believe in equality,” he says.

The actor goes on to add, “If I see, I would not appreciate it and will point it out.  It is easy for a male actor to say I don’t see things happening around me. I don’t know if it is the North-South divide,” he adds.

Dulquer Salmaan is happy with the fact that women are working in every department in the Hindi industry. “What I do see here is that the women can work in any department, which is so great. I see them in every department. It makes me happy,” he smiles, adding, “In the South, people are still conservative when it comes to the cinema. There, we have trouble in casting lead actresses. More women should come and join cinema and I think it will change down south as well.”
