Dulquer Salmaan – the dapper looking army officer, Ram – the hero of Sita Ramam says he was looking for action films to do so that the audience does not feel he is repeating himself, but when he heard the story of Sita Ramam, he fell in love with it. “It is not that I will never do love stories, but I will be doing more mature kind of stories in the future. Any film I do whether it’s action or love story has to be original, new and fresh.”
“Rashmika is usually a person, who always has a smiling face and laughs, but in this film there is not one scene where you see her smile. This is the kind of a role that she has not done so far.”
About why his father too advised him not to miss the film – he mentions – I am a great fan of my father. I can never find fault with anything he does. I idolise him and if I look at the number of films he has done, I feel I am not doing enough. We listen to so many story narrations that it is impossible to discuss every film at length. But if I like something, I tell him about it in a sentence, and he heard about this film, and felt that I should not miss it.
Dulquer says his films, be it in Malayalam or Telugu are a perfect balance of realistic and commercial. “I pick films that give scope for a cinematic experience. And, when I do a character even though I try not to let audience predict my expression, I do not put too much pressure on the character. It is unfair to do so. So, I let myself be as natural as possible and work within what the character demands.”
“There are many special and surprising moments in the film. What you see in the film trailer is just a tiny part of what you are going to witness,” he promises.
