One of the most awaited movies of the year Chup: The Revenge of the aritist hit the screen. The movie stars Dulquer Salmaan and Sunny Deol in lead roles. Dulquer in a recent interview recalled when he worked in a construction company even after being a star kid.
Dulquer had been working in Dubai in a construction company despite coming from a film family and having an interest in acting. He said, "I thought I would not make it. Nobody will want to watch me. I thought I couldn't act, I used to be petrified of the stage and the camera. Not for anything, but this constant sort of self-doubt and fear of comparison to my father. So I thought I would steer completely off."
He further added, "Then I realised I am not happy doing this. I am not an office, 9 to 5 kind of person, it doesn't give me any joy. It feels like work. And when I started making short films with friends who were trying to get into the movies, and who had no film background, I was like 'man you guys have the guts. Why am I being so scared?' So one day I quit everything, I flew to Bombay, I went to Barry John. Then it just snowballed from there." he was in Mumbai studying at Barry John, he also met casting agents from Bollywood. However, he had a terrible eye infection for which he had to move back to Kochi, and he left the idea of Bollywood behind.
