Dulquer Salmaan

Malayalam superstar Dulquer Salmaan is all set to  be seen in  Hindi , in R Balki’s unusual Chup which takes on  film critics   in India. A large part  of the  film is based on  Guru Dutt’s immortal classic  Kagaz Ke Phool.

Dulquer disarmingly  admits that he was  not familiar with the works  of Guru Dutt.  “I mean, of course I knew  who Guru Dutt was. And of course I had heard his great  songs , seen some of his work. But it was  only after working in Balki sir’s Chup  that I became aware of the  true importance of Guru Dutt to Indian cinema.”

In Chup,Dulquer has even sung  the  Mohd Rafi  hit Sar jot tera  chakraye (officially composed by Sachin Dev Burman  but actually composed  by his son  Rahul Dev Burman) from the  film Pyaasa .
