One of the aspects that contribute to Dulquer Salmaan‘s charm is his reputation as a devoted ‘family man’. Having tied the knot with Chennai-based architect Amaal Sufiya in 2011, around the same time that he entered the film industry, Dulquer has consistently delighted his fans by frequently accompanying his wife to public events, where they impress with their impeccable fashion choices.
Recently, the actor opened up about his relationship with Amaal Sufiya and how it has evolved over the past 12 years of their marriage.
Reflecting on the moment he realised Amaal was ‘the one’, DQ shared during a conversation with YouTuber Ranveer Allahbadia on his show BeerBiceps, “Prior to that, anyone I dated, met, or knew, I could only envision them fitting in with my friends, not my family. I always think about my family, due to our close-knit bond. However, when I met Amaal, I saw her fitting in there. I could see her as a part of my world… my family… something I had never experienced with anyone else.”
Elaborating on the progression of their relationship, DQ shared, “I distinctly recall returning from my honeymoon and immediately joining the sets of my second film (Ustaad Hotel). Our courtship was rather brief, given that we got married only six months after meeting each other. Ahead of marriage, there’s only so much that our families allowed us to really travel or anything. It wasn’t as if we could simply go on a holiday together. So, it mainly involved meeting up for coffee or going to the movies. I got married and started my career around the same time. Hence, every little chance we got to hang out and spend time together meant a lot and we made the most of it. Our marriage has always been long-distance. That works both ways: it takes effort and you also start to value the little things.
‘We are both from the same school,’ says Dulquer
Dulquer Salmaan also highlighted that they both have contrasting socialising tendencies. Opening up about how he met Amaal, Dulquer shared that they happen to be from the same school. “We are both from the same school. She was five-six years younger. I wasn’t seeing anyone. I started getting these rishtas and stuff. I randomly started bumping into my wife who I never saw in Chennai till then. A lot of people kept telling me about her.”
“When I started seeing her out, I think I started seeing her 3 times a week. So, I took it as a sign. I asked her out for a coffee. She didn’t reply for two days and I was wondering if I did something wrong. But then she was very sweet, she responded in the affirmative and said, ‘Let’s meet’. I guess we both kind of kept the parents in the loop,” mentioned Dulquer.
Helmed by veteran filmmaker Joshiy’s son Abhilash Joshiy, who is making his directorial debut with the movie, King of Kotha is a period gangster film and will hit theatres on August 24 as an Onam release.
