Dulquer Salmaan and Mammootty

When it rains, it pours! It’s been a long wait for a Dulquer Salmaan theatrical release for fans. But in a span of just more than a month, the young star will have two releases – Kurup and Salute – both of which he is also producing. 

While Kurup is all set to hit 450 theatres in Kerala and about 1500 screens across the world on November 12, we hear that the actor’s Salute, which is directed by Rosshan Andrrews, will release on December 17 – just in time for the festive season. Incidentally, this would also mean that the film will release a week ahead of Mammootty’s Puzhu, which is currently scheduled for a December 23 release. 

Dulquer is also co-producing Puzhu, which is directed by Ratheena Sharshad and also has Parvathy in the lead. The movie will have Mammootty play a role with grey shades after a long gap and is already much-awaited by the fans. 


Discounting Dulquer’s Maniyarayile Ashokan that he had produced and played a cameo in, both the actor and his father Mammootty haven’t had a direct-to-OTT release yet. Mammootty, meanwhile, is slated to lead a segment in the upcoming Netflix anthology that will be directed by Lijo Jose Pellissery. The anthology is based on MT Vasudevan Nair’s short stories and has a stellar cast featuring Mohanlal, Biju Menon, Asif Ali and Fahadh Faasil in various segments. 

Apart from Kurup and Salute, Dulquer has also finished shooting for the Tamil movie Hey Sinamika and R Balki’s Chup. He is next set to resume shooting for Hanu Raghavapudi’s trilingual period drama that also stars Rashmika Mandanna and Mrunal Thakur.
