Legendary actor Mammootty lost to son Dulquer Salmaan, as Dulquer bagged the top honour at the Kerala state awards. And, this announcement truly surprised us! It’s true that Dulquer is a turning out to win the audience with his performance, however what’s surprising is that he beat fine performers like Mammootty, Jayasurya and Prithiviraj to win this honour. Mammootty is a living legend in the Malayalam film industry, and it turns out to be quite the news when his son’s performance was noticed and appreciated by the Kerala government over his own. Dulquer Salmaan has bagged the award for Best Actor for his role in Charlie – a film that is still running to packed houses. The young actor told a leading daily that he felt ecstatic after winning, and that his father felt very happy and emotional. Unni and Martin Prakkat won the award for the Best Screenplay for Charlie. The film bagged eight awards, including the music and technical categories.
