Dulquer Salmaan starring upcoming love story, directed by actor-director Prathap Pothen, is rumoured to be in trouble. Reportedly, the project has been delayed due to Prathap's fallout with cinematographer Rajiv Menon.
The director has posted a note on his Facebook page on June 30th, revealing how a cinematographer insulted him by asking to direct a short film and prove his talent, before directing the Dulquer movie.
Prathap has clearly mentioned that he introduced this highly popular cinematographer into the movie industry. Rajiv Menon made his debut as an independent cinematographer, with Prathap Pothen's directorial venture Chaithanya.
So, the industry members and media speculate that Prathap posted about none other than Rajiv Menon, who is supposed to crank the camera for his upcoming Dulquer Salmaan movie. However, the reports are not confirmed yet.
Earlier, Prathap Pothen has had an ugly fallout with actor Jayaram, as his son Kalidas Jayaram rejected the project stating that he is not ready to work with 'old' directors. Later, the team went on to rope in Dulquer Salmaan.
The untitled movie, which is written by National award winner Anjali Menon, is produced by the Malayalam banner Supriya Films. Popular actor R Madhavan is said to be making an extended cameo appearance in the movie.
