South star Dulquer Salmaan has extended heartwarming Onam greetings to all his fans. After all, it is his “most favourite time” of the year. In an Instagram post, the actor shared a photograph of himself looking dapper in a finely tailored kurta set. Dulquer Salmaan, in his caption, said, “Onam marks new beginnings, reunions with family and friends, yummiest sandhyas (hearty meal), pookalams (rangoli) and onakkodi (new garments for the festival).” Dulquer Salmaan has also requested his online family to celebrate “this Onam with a reel for Heeriye which marked my [his] first music video, catch my [his] series debut Guns & Gulaabs on Netflix, and enjoy King Of Kotha, my [his] widest theatrical release in cinemas with your families.” Heeriye, by Jasleen Royal and Arijit Singh, was released last month. The music video featured Dulquer Salmaan and Jasleen Royal.
In the caption, Dulquer Salmaan added, “Cannot wait to bring you all the exciting projects I have lined up for the coming year! Wishing you all the most joyous Onam filled with love, peace, health and prosperity.”
Dulquer Salmaan made his OTT debut earlier this month with Raj and DK’s Guns & Gulaabs. The Netflix show also stars Rajkummar Rao, Adarsh Gourav and Gulshan Devaiah. In the series, Dulquer Salmaan plays narcotics bureau officer Arjun Varma who is transferred to Gulaabgunj with a brief to clean up the place.
Dulquer Salmaan’s latest big-screen release is King Of Kotha, directed by debutant Abhilash Joshiy. The film, which opened to theatres on August 24, is jointly produced by Dulquer Salmaan’s Wayfarer Films and Zee Studios.
Film critic Saibal Chatterjee, in his review for NDTV, said, “The three-hour, technically impressive gangster film – it is, packed with explosive action scenes interspersed with occasional emotional passages and buoyed by a propulsive background score by Jakes Bejoy – is irretrievably undermined by a trite script, making Dulquer’s shot at a massy pan-Indian film a letdown, a king-size one at that.”
