After Big B lauded Mani Ratnam’s Ok Kanmani and the lead performances a month back, Dulquer Salmaan has recalled his memorable childhood moment with the actor. “The leads are a delight to watch – the boy, Mammootty’s son, Mammootty the mega star of Malayalam Cinema in Kerala and equally a sprightly love interest in his opposite number a young lady of enormous verve,” wrote Big B on his blog.
Now, Dulquer took to his social media page to reciprocate the praise.
“I’ve been searching for this picture for some time. Mr Bachchan is the one celebrity I wanted a picture with. I remember requesting my father to take me to get a picture with him. So, during the AMMA show in 1995, one early morning, Vappichi loaded his SLR camera with some black and white film and drove me to Taj Malabar. Mr Bachchan was eating his breakfast and offered me some idlis.Though I had already eaten, I couldn’t say no to him. So, while two of my ultimate superstars sat and discussed films and life, I sat between them and ate a plate full of idlis. My life has come full circle now. When The Amitabh Bachchan himself wrote about OK Kanmani! Thank you sir for the kind words… Thank you for always inspiring us with your performances, accomplishments and every obstacle you have faced and overcome!,” posted an ecstatic Dulquer on his Facebook page with a lovely picture of him and Amitabh.
