With his boy-next-door looks and charming disposition, Dulquer Salmaan is not only a known actor down South but is also a heartthrob of many pan India. The actor, who had a recent Bollywood release with The Zoya Factor, is known to be a dedicated performer.
In a recent exclusive chat with Box Office India, the actor talked about how he likes to work for 18-20 hours a day when on location but is the complete opposite otherwise. He said, “I think I am used to doing a lot in a day especially when I am on shoot. I am actually quite lazy when I am not shooting. But on a film set I feel like if you are just sitting around a lot, it can get quite draining. It is nice to be on your feet and keep doing something because that energy kind of translates. When we were there, we were trying to get a lot done in a day and the budgets are smaller. So say if you have permission to shoot in a building, it will be that expensive and therefore, you have to finish it in a certain number of days. I am used to that.
Hinting that this is one of the major differences between the Hindi and the South film industry, he further added, “I remember when I was shooting for Solo, we had a small budget and it was in two languages and most days I was shooting for 18 to 20 hours. Coming from that to here, when we do not do many scenes in a day, it feels like, ‘What have we done today? One scene? That’s it!’. It is different for me and I have to get used to that.”
