The multi-talented R Balki who last directed Padman in 2018 with Akshay Kumar, is set to return to direction, this time with a thriller featuring the immensely talented Malayalam actor Dulquer Salman who has so far not had much luck in Hindi cinema.
Sources say the film will be a start-to-finish quickie and will feature the multi-faceted Dulquer in a role never seen before.
Balki has always made effective use of South Indian talent in Hindi cinema, be it Ilaiyaraja’s music in Cheeni Kam and Paa , Dhanush’s and Arundhati Nag’s acting talents in Shamitabh and Paa, respectively. Dulquer made his unsuccessful Hindi debut with Irrfan Khan in Karwan.
This thriller directed by Balki could be just the push he needs to kickstart a Bollywood career.
