Dulquer Salmaan’s most awaited upcoming film ‘Kurup’ is expected to be hitting the big screens soon. If reports are to be believed, makers of ‘Kurup’ are planning to release the film in the theatres by November. As theatres in Kerala are reopening from Monday (October 25), it can be assumed that the big-ticket release might aim for a festival release, which is apparently Diwali.
Earlier, there were reports that the Dulquer Salmaan starrer will be heading to direct OTT release, however, as the theatres in Kerala are now finally reopening, it can be expected that the makers might go for the big screens. The official announcement from the team is awaited.
Meanwhile, ‘Kurup’ is helmed by Srinath Rajendran, the same filmmaker who launched Dulquer Salmaan in 2012 with ‘Second Show’. The upcoming film is based on the life of the infamous fugitive Sukumara Kurup. Dulquer Salmaan has roped in to play the titular and the film will be simultaneously releasing in Malayalam, Tamil, Telugu, Hindi, and Kannada languages.
‘Kurup’ is undoubtedly an ambitious film for Dulquer Salmaan, as he is reuniting with Srinath Rajendran after nearly a decade and is also reportedly made on a massive budget of Rs. 35 crore. The team has shot for the film in various locations, including Kerala, Ahmedabad, Mumbai, Dubai, Mangalore, and Mysore. Dulquer himself is backing the project under his home production banner Wayfarer Films in association with M-Star Entertainment. The film has actors Indrajith Sukumaran, Sobhita Dhulipala, Sunny Wayne, Shine Tom Chacko, Vijayaraghavan, P Balachandran, and Surabhi Lakshmi in some pivotal roles.
Meanwhile, Dulquer Salmaan is currently working on his Bollywood movie ‘Chup: Revenge Of The Artist’, which is directed by R Balki. The film has Sunny Deol, Pooja Bhatt, Dulquer Salmaan, and Shreya Dhanwanthary in the lead roles. The shoot is progressing in Mumbai.
