Mammootty’s advice to son Dulquer Salmaan: ‘Take Risks’

January 18, 2020 | 08:29 IST | Editorial |

In a recent interview, Dulquer Salmaan revealed the advice his dad Mammootty used to give him, something that has helped him to become the star he is now.

“My father always encourages me to take risks. Right from my initial days, he told me that my food, lodging and other basic things were secure. So, as a youngster if I don’t take risks, if I don’t experiment, who will? Dad always says that unless you make mistakes you cannot build your character as an individual and grow as an artist.”

“If one film fails, I do not have to sleep on the road, right? So, then why should I not take calculated risks? My father is very stubborn. He does not believe in spoon-feeding me in the film business,” he added.

Dulquer Salmaan debuted in 2012 with Second Show but it was Ustaad Hotel that gained Dulquer the popularity. The film was a commercial success and it also won the National Award for Best Popular Film Providing Wholesome Entertainment.

Dulquer Salmaan’s upcoming projects are Kannum Kannum Kollaiyadithaal in Tamil and Malayalam film Kurup.
