However, the actor has admitted that he is his dad Mammootty’s biggest fan. He should be because Mammooty is considered as the god of Malayalam cinema. Lately, there were rumours doing roundabouts that both father-son would be sharing screen space in Bilal. However, Dulquer Salmaan in an interview said that he is still waiting for the day when he would be able to share screenspace with his dad.

Talking about Bilal, it is a sequel to Big B which was a big hit in 2007. The first part of the movie revolved around the character’s bond with his siblings.
