REVEALED: Why Dulquer Salmaan Doesn't Carry His Father Mammootty's Name?

  • 19 Sep 2020

Actor Dulquer Salmaan is the new rave of the Malayalam cinema. He has also acted in a few Tamil movies, notably Mani Ratnam's 'OK Kanmani' and most recently a crime comedy 'Kannum Kannum Kollaiyadithaal'.

He's actually the son of Malayalam actor Mammootty who's been in the cine world for over four decades. However, he has paved his name in the industry with his performances and excellent choice of films over the years.

Also, Dulquer's surname is not Mammootty which might be the reason why many of his fans are unaware that he is a star kid. In an earlier interview, Dulquer revealed the real reason why he's not using his father's name. 

 "I don't have his last name. Nobody in my family has that last name. He didn't want us to be singled out in school. He didn't want that attention. Even when reading my name, he didn't want that identity to strike," he said.

On top of that, Mammootty never produced any of his son's film to date.
