Dulquer Salmaan on his fans

When asked why does he think he has such a huge female following, the actor said, “I think this talk of female following has been happening since O Kadhal Kanmani or Sita Ramam. But otherwise I have a solid boy fan following in Kerala… Having said that people know who I am actually, in that there is a connect… I have had weird interactions with maybe slightly older women, not like aunties, but older women, who have taken pictures, and then just sneaked a peck on my cheek. Not very appropriate, but they are sweet. Sometimes it catches you by surprise. I am not even looking there, I am posing for the picture and suddenly there’s a thak (peck).”

Recalls ‘bizarre’ incident

When asked if someone has ever grabbed his a**, Dulquer said, “Yes. Again an older lady, I don’t know why… And it was very awkward and very bizarre. I was in pain. I don’t think it was that kind of a grab, I don’t know what… and she was like way older. I don’t know what it meant and I was on stage and a lot of people were standing there and I was like ‘Aunty please come and stand here’. A lot of the times, people don’t know where to keep their hands… sometimes it is just on your behind… but this, I was like ‘Why is this happening? And I don’t know how to get out of it’. It was bizarre. I completely forgot about this.”
