The second one is a rare picture from Dulquer's childhood in which he can be seen standing in between his father's legs and posing for the camera with cutesy expressions. Along with these two pictures, the doting son penned a long touching note for his father in which he talked about his father in length and surfaced the things, which helps us understand the secret behind his dad, Mammootty's illustrious career.
