R Balki’s Chup:The Revenge of The Artist stars the talented actor Dulqer Salmaan. The unconventional director recently opened up on casting the Star for the film and the reason comes as a surprise.
“For Chup, I was lucky to have someone super talented, a superstar in one half of the country, who speaks Hindi as if it’s his mother tongue and who can be a terrific discovery for the other half of the country. I wanted a relatively fresh face for Hindi Cinema with the acting muscle of a veteran and then I found Dulquer. I narrated the film to him on Zoom during the lockdown, and that was it. We met for thirty minutes or so in Cochin and then directly on the set. I never even had to do a reading or a workshop with him” – expressed R. Balki on casting the actor for the thriller.
R Balki’s search for novelty came apparent in his reason for casting Dulquer Salmaan and he is certain to give his audience a never-like-before watch. Dulquer Salmaan has been carrying the most versatile roles and delivering them with utmost dedication. His diverse roles like Kurup – Nov’21 – Malayalam, Hey Sinamika – Mar’22 – Tamil, Salute – Mar’22 – OTT and Sita Ramam – Aug’22 – Telugu highlights his roles coming from a vibrant slate. With R Balki’s thriller, the actor adds another to his list.
