Bollywood may have discovered the treasure trove that is Dulquer Salmaan. But South Indians have watched him and loved him ever since his first stint on-screen in Malayalam. DQ who made his debut in Bollywood with Karwaan alongside Irrfan Khan and Mithila Palkar was recently seen with Sonam Kapoor in The Zoya Factor. While we’re still waiting to see him in more Bollywood films, it looks like Dulquer has made his place in Bollywood already. What with getting invited to the biggest Bollywood bash at the Bachchan household and being one of the guests on Neha Dhupia‘s popular podcast #NoFilterWithNeha. While on the show with Neha, DQ talked about how shooting for an intimate scene still makes him uncomfortable. So much that, his hands start shaking. He also went on to share a trick that he does while performing such scenes.
My hands shake. One of my tricks when I do intimate scenes, I always tuck women’s hair behind their ear. I find it very endearing, in real life also. But in real life, it’s easier because the person is familiar. I share a familiarity with my wife, even with my sister or mother. When I do share physical contact or affection with them, its easy for me in real life.
Every time I’m with a co-star — I mean, I have got a lot better now — I’m always thinking, ‘are they thinking that I’m a jerk to be getting a kick out of this?’ Women are quick to find out. They are very sharp at seeing this and are almost always amused by this. And then I feel like I’m naked, that they can see right through me — see what I’m going through. Someone like Sonam is very sweet about it but those intimate scenes are still not my favourite things to shoot.
If that’s not the sweetest thing that you’ve heard. I don’t know what is. For those who are yet to educate yourself on Dulquer, trust me and watch, Ustad Hotel, O Kadhal Kanmani, and Charlie for starters.
