Salim Kumar: Not great enough for ‘Bharath’ title?

The National Award-winning actor says he is not yet in the league of great actors like Bharath Gopi and PJ Antony

Salim Kumar does not want to be known as ‘Bharath Salim Kumar’, after he won the National Film Award for Best Actor for Adaminte Makan Abu. According to him, this title only suits great actors like Bharath Gopi and PJ Antony. “They don’t give the Bharath Award any more, and it is wrong to use the prefix to my name. Moreover, I am not ready to be counted among great actors such as Bharath Gopi and PJ Antony,” Salim said, while addressing the media at Kannur, Kerala.

Meanwhile, Adaminte… director Salim Ahmed added that the movie will release in Kerala on June 17. The duo also dismissed allegations of plagiarism as baseless. Said Salim, “Adaminte Makan Abu is yet to be released. Without watching the film, the man who levelled the allegations came to the conclusion that its story is plagiarised. I came across the story that he claimed to be similar to that of Adaminte Makan Abu. The story penned by him bears resemblance to that of Kuttikkuppayam.”

Salim Ahmed announced that pre-release shows of Adaminte Makan Abu would he held at Chennai, Ernakulam and Kannur. The director also revealed that he had received an offer to remake his film in Hindi.
