Vijay breaks a joke of Liger
Early on in their chat video posted on both stars’ YouTube channels, Vijay interestingly points out how their current trajectory is heading in the opposite direction. While Vijay’s last film before romance Kushi was Puri Jagannadh’s all-India boxing drama Liger last year, Dulquer’s last film before action house King of Kotha was an old fashioned romance page of Hanu Raghavapudi Sita Ramam opposite Mrunal Thakur last year.
But Vijay was also quick to add a witty comment, “I hope your action movies do better than mine,” referring to Liger’s dismal box office. The two then had a good laugh. Dulquer later returned the favor and said, “I hope your love story will be as successful as mine.” Sita Ramam deserves it $91.40 crore at the box office.
Dulquer says people love watching him play romantic roles
Vijay said in the same chat that he recently held a national press conference in Hyderabad for the premiere of Kushi’s trailer and was mainly asked questions about his views and marriage plans. that. Dulquer says he’s only been asked why he’s playing an action movie in a rugged avatar because people love seeing him shaved in romantic roles.
“As soon as people think I’m comfortable in something, I want to get out of there quickly. I think that’s the only way to keep it interesting for us and for them,” Dulquer said. However, he also added that he cannot be like his gangster character in real life because he has difficulty expressing anger out loud even on screen.
Although Vijay and Dulquer do not share screen space with each other, their mutual fondness is quite well known. The two also starred in Nag Ashwin’s critically acclaimed 2018 film Mahanati, in which Samantha was also their co-star.
