'I am not very notorious'
After three babck to back duds Dulquer Salman will be seen in Anjali Menon’s Bangalore Days
Dulquer Salman has a huge fan following amongst the young crowd.
He has been riding high for a while, but his last couple of films didn’t do as much business at the box office as he would have liked.
He hopes that this weekend’s release, Anjali Menon’s Bangalore Days, will be different.
In a brief chat with rediff.com, Dulquer talks about his role.
What is your character Arjun in Bangalore Days like?
He is pretty notorious. Or let’s say, he is a bit rebellious. He is not a stickler for rules.
How close is Arjun to your real self?
(Smiles) Oh, I am not very notorious. Maybe that is why I feel like doing louder roles or exploring my wild side with some roles.

'There is no secret formula to create only hits'
With Fahadh Faasil, Nivin Pauly, Nazriya Nazim, Nithya Menen, Isha Talwar and Parvathy in the cast, what was is like shooting for the film?
I think the chemistry between the artistes will be visible on screen.
It was great fun shooting for this one. All of us were busy and getting us together was a genius act from Anjali.
It was a nice, close-knit atmosphere. We didn’t need to do forced acting to show the vibe on screen.
Your last three films were disappointing. What went wrong?
I never made any big claims when my films were doing well.
I feel it's like making a movie based on a book. Sometimes it meets your expectations, sometimes it exceeds the expectations and sometimes it doesn’t work.
At the end of the day, all of us are artistes. Such ups and downs are normal in this career.
There is no secret formula to create only hits.
