Malayalam star Dulquer Salmaan has said that he saves screenshots of social media posts that criticise him and make personal attacks. He added that he even remembers the IDs of those accounts that make such posts. While criticism of actors is not new, nor unwarranted, social media has dropped the curtain and trolls have often resorted to making personal attacks on celebrities.
Speaking in an interview with Prabhat Khabar, Dulquer said he has read about Abhishek Bachchan pasting paper cutting of his own criticism on his mirror. He added, “If I talk about myself, if you search on my phone, you will find screenshots of comments that personally attack me. I save those and even look at them from time to time. Twitter, Instagram, YouTube, (I save them all). I remember the IDs of all those who attack me.”
On the work front, Dulquer will be soon seen in R Balki’s revenge drama ‘Chup Revenge of The Artist’, which is slated for a theatrical release on September 23. The movie will also feature Sunny Deol, Pooja Bhatt and Shreya Dhanwanthary.
Touted as a romantic psychopath thriller, ‘Chup’ is being pegged as a homage to yesteryear filmmaker Guru Dutt and his film, ‘Kaagaz Ke Phool’. The upcoming film also marks the debut of Amitabh Bachchan as a music composer. R Balki is known for his films such as 'Paa', 'Ki and Ka' and 'Shamitabh'. All the films that he has directed, feature Amitabh Bachchan.
