#A Mammootty but not in name

Dulquer doesn’t use Mammootty as his last name and the reason is his father. In an interview, Dulquer said, “I don’t look like him. I look like my mother, which has been a blessing. Plus my last name doesn’t have his name, and he did that when I was in school because he said he didn’t want me to get harassed.”
