His Excellency Saood Abdul Aziz handed over the Golden Visa to Dulquer Salmaan in the presence of Mr Yusuf Ali
The UAE government has been identifying eminent people in different fields based on their contributions to their area of specialisation and honouring them with the Golden Visa to promote art, business, travel, tourism and economic growth. The Visa allows the recipient to live and work in the nation without a national sponsor. Earlier, Shah Rukh Khan and Sanjay Dutt had received the honour. For the first time in the history of Malayalam Cinema, Mammootty and Mohanlal were both honoured with the Golden Visa. Today, Dulquer Salmaan was presented with the honour by His Excellency Saood Abdul Aziz in the presence of Mr. Yusuf Ali, who owns the Lulu group.
An elated DQ took to his social media page to write, “Had the privilege and honour of receiving my golden visa from His Excellency Saood Abdul Aziz in the presence of Mr Yusuf Ali. It was wonderful to hear of all the future plans of the Abu Dhabi govt to promote film and production activities, and also to encourage new talent locally and internationally. Looking forward to productions, shoots and spending more time in Abu Dhabi and the UAE.”
