In a recent interview with Film Companion, Dulquer Salmaan opened up about bagging a key role in Guns & Gulaabs. Interestingly, the actor revealed that he is playing someone who is not his age. Dulquer added that he is pushing himself out of his comfort zone with the Netflix project. The charming actor feels that it is very liberating to be a part of such a film, as he is just being an actor here and there are no pressures.
“I don’t have this pressure of box office and opening day here, like in Malayalam. Here I can come and play anything, I’m just an actor here. It is wonderful, it is so liberating,” said Dulquer Salmaan. He also revealed that Guns & Gulaabs is a very entertaining show, set in a different period.

“It is set in this imaginary town, and all these characters – what brings us together – I think it will be a fun ride,” said Dulquer. The actor feels that his directors Raj and DK have highly analytical minds. According to Dulquer Salmaan, there are a lot of thoughts and logic that go behind Raj and DK’s works, and that appeals to him the most. The actor also added that he thoroughly enjoyed shooting for Guns & Gulaabs in a long format, even though it was a bit tricky.
