Dulquer Salmaan recently opened up on remaking films, the actor said that although he looks hugely inspired by his father and legendary actor Mammootty, he would never remake his films.

According to an IANS report, during a live show on Roposo, which is the creator-driven live platform, when Salmaan was asked about his biggest inspiration, he revealed, "My father, Mammootty, is my greatest inspiration in the film industry."

He further added that his father was the one who supported him when he decided to shift his career from being a business manager to being an actor.

However, when he was asked if he would work in any remake of his father's film, he left everyone surprised with his answer. Salmaan said, "None! I don't believe in remakes actually. I feel that classics should be left untouched. In fact, music, as well as movies, shouldn't be remade."

On the work front, the actor will be seen in Raj & DK's Guns & Gulaabs also starring Rajkummar Rao, Adarsh Gourav, Pooja Gor and Gulshan Devaiah in pivotal roles.
