Samantha and Vijay play journalists who piece together the journey of Savitri, who was the first woman superstar in the South Indian film industry.
Dulquer is currently part of many interesting projects in Malayalam, Tamil and Hindi. He has already completed shooting Bollywood film Karwaan, and he has also signed Anurag Kashyap’s Manmarziyan, a love triangle, which also stars Taapsee Pannu and Vicky Kaushal.
His upcoming Tamil film Kannum Kannum Kollaiyadaithaal is also on the floors. The romantic flick is directed by Desingh Periyasamy and has Ritu Varma as its female lead. Dulquer was last seen in Bejoy Nambiar’s bilingual film Solo. The anthology film did not do well at the box office.
