Dulquer Salmaan might be celebrating the birth of his first child with wife, Amal Sufiya, but the actor seems to be wary of the attention online. The OK Kanmani (2015) actor announced the birth of his girl child on 5 May, the same day as the release of his Malayalam film, Comrade in America.

But the actor shied away from putting any pictures of his newborn child online. He even put out a request asking his fans not to share fake pictures of his child online. The request comes in the wake of several people putting out incorrect pictures, which they claimed were of his child, online.

The actor, whose Malayalam film Comrade in America is doing well in theatres, took to Twitter to make the request.

He tweeted, "Requesting all our well wishers to not spread fake baby pics. Just respect our privacy. I try my best to share as much with all of you."

It may be recalled that Dulquer Salmaan and his wife Amal Sufiya were blessed with a baby girl on May 5.

The actor had then said, "For all the immense love all of you shower upon us. For all the undying support you give us. For always rooting for us to do our best. Every release, every event, every news of ours lives you all share in our joy. In return I can only return our happiness, joy and gratitude.  Today is unforgettable in more ways than one. My life just changed forever. We've been blessed with a drop of heaven. At long last my biggest dream came true.  I got my princess. Amu got a mini version of herself."
