While he played the quintessential chocolate boy in OK Kanmani, the original version of the Aditya Roy Kapur, Shraddha Kapoor’s romantic drama Ok Jaanu, Dulquer Salmaan is now gearing up for Bollywood. Born to Malayalam superstar Mammootty, the South actor is all set to play the lead in Ronnie Screwvala’s upcoming production.
Reportedly, Dulquer Salmaan wasn’t the first choice for the role. Abhishek Bachchan was initially approached to play the part but it seems that the actor couldn’t allot dates because the schedule was clashing with his other film, JP Dutta’s Paltan which has already gone on floors.
