Salimkumar has played the hero's sidekick to perfection in a number of movies. With his knack for comedy, this actor's trademark dialogues and slapstick routine evoked laughter in more than 125 movies.
In between, he proved his credentials as an actor, quite convincingly, in a handful of roles that stand out from his usual characters. Like the musician Tabla Bhaskaran who lives in the memories of his good old days in `Gramaphone,' the nagging Aamu eleppa in `Perumazhakkalam,' the `extra artiste' Rafeeq in `Udayananu Tharam' and so on.
"The list will always be incomplete as I find some virtue in every role that I portray, regardless of any classification. Still, these characters top the list as the ones that showcased my histrionic skills," says Salim.
With a greyish moustache, partially bald pate and moist eyes, Salim has transformed into the character, the shooting of which is on in Peerumade.
"Salim is flexible and is positive to make-up. And he makes good use of his eyes, which are indeed very expressive," feels Lal Jose.
