Dulquer Salmaan has become the talk of the nation as he is in rage with back-to-back hits in the form of Kurup and Sita Ramam. The actor created a separate trademark for himself with different kinds of films. He is entertaining different language audiences continuously.
Few started to compare his work in Sita Ramam to Sharukh Khan’s Veer Zaara. The actor responded to this by saying that comparing him with Sharukh Khan is like insulting Sharukh. Dulquer added that he grew up watching Sharukh’s films and termed him as his inspiration.
Dulquer Salmaan further said that he looked up to Sharukh when he had doubts in the starting stage of his career. The actor also added that there is only one Sharukh Khan. This shows how much he adores King Khan. Dulquer Salmaan will be next seen in Chup which releases on 23rd September.
Furthermore, Dulquer Salmaan also confessed that he has been one of his biggest fans and that the Shah Rukh Khan, Kajol starrer iconic film Dilwale Dulhania Le Jayenge is one of his favorite films. Speaking at the press conference, Dulquer turned into a fanboy as he said, “I am a huge Shah Rukh Sir fan both on and off-screen. He is such a big role model for all of us. I am in awe of how he treats people, how he talks to people, how respectful he is to women. If Shah Rukh Sir talks to you in a room full of people, you will still feel like you are the only person in the room. He is very special and I have grown up watching his films. I have watched DDLJ multiple times with my sister. It is probably one of my favorite films.”
Sita Ramam was released in theaters on August 5. It began to stream on Prime Video from September 9 onwards. Through two timelines, 1964 and 1984, Sita Ramam revealed the mystery behind its main protagonists, Sita Mahalakshmi (Mrunal Thakur) and Lt. Ram (Dulquer Salmaan). When Afreen (Rashmika Mandanna), a student of Pakistani origin, was asked to find Sita to deliver a 20-year-old letter written to her by Ram, she traveled from London to India. She took help of Balaji, a senior at her college who was residing in Hyderabad (Tharun Bhascker).
