      R Balki Opens Up About Casting Dulquer Salmaan For His Upcoming Psychological Thriller Chup


      R Balki recently unveiled the teaser of his film Chup on Bollywood legend Guru Dutt's birthday. Paying an ode to him, the teaser directly pointed to the criticism that the legendary director received for his masterpiece Kaagaz Ke Phool. The teaser of Chup has gained a lot of appreciation from the fans and the release of the psychological thriller has become one of the most awaited ones in recent times.


      Balki, who is working with Dulqer Salmaan in the film, recently opened up on casting the south star for his film and the reason comes as a surprise. The filmmaker said, "For Chup, I was lucky to have someone super talented, a superstar in one half of the country, who speaks Hindi as if it’s his mother tongue and who can be a terrific discovery for the other half of the country. I wanted a relatively fresh face for Hindi Cinema with the acting muscle of a veteran and then I found Dulquer. I narrated the film to him on Zoom during the lockdown, and that was it. We met for thirty minutes or so in Cochin and then directly on the set. I never even had to do a reading or a workshop with him"
