It is pertinent to note that the actor had been shooting for his projects over the past few months and he requested people who were working with him on his shoots to remain in isolation and get tested.

Adding that the pandemic is not yet over and it is extremely important to remain vigilant, Dulquer requested his fans and friends to use face masks and stay in the safe confines of their homes. A few days earlier, Salmaan’s father Mammootty had also tested positive for the disease.

On the work front, Salmaan is awaiting the release of his cop drama Salute which was about to get released but got postponed due to the onset of the third wave of Coronavirus. Directed by Rosshan Andrrews, the film’s new release date is yet to be announced as the film fraternity waits for the third wave of Coronavirus to subside.
