Dulquer Salmaan, the Malayalam actor and son of veteran South actor Mammootty, is all set to make his Bollywood debut with Ronnie Screwvala’s Karwaan, which also stars Irrfan Khan, and Youtube sensation, Mithila Palkar.
His debut Bollywood movie may not have hit the screens yet, but Salmaan has already bagged his second Hindi project.
According to reports, Dulquer will be seen opposite Sonam Kapoor in the celluloid version of Anuja Chauhan’s bestselling novel The Zoya Factor.
Sources said, “It’s an interesting character and Dulquer has liked the script. While he has committed to the project he is yet to sign on the dotted line.”
The Zoya Factor will be directed by Abhishek Sharma, who earlier directed hit movie Tere Bin Laden.
Although Rucha Pathak of Fox Star Studios, who is producing the film, has neither confirmed nor denied that Dulquer will be playing the lead, she said, “We are yet to finalise the cast and will soon make the announcement.”
For the meantime, Dulquer has wrapped up his first Bollywood project, Karwan, starring Irrfan Khan and Mithila Palkar.
The film has been directed by Akarsh Khurana, who was the dialogue writer of Yeh Jawaani Hai Deewani and 2 States.
