Kurup sequel confirmed by Srinath Rajendran.
Dulquer Salmaan’s latest release ‘Kurup’ is shattering records at the box office. It is already claimed to have taken the highest opening for a Malayalam film worldwide. The film had a phenomenal run during its opening weekend and going by the bookings for the week days, it seems like the film will have a steady run.
Directed by Srinath Rajendran, the film is about the real-life criminal Sukumara Kurup, who has been absconding for over 3 decades. The film, which is partly fictious, has an intriguing tail end leaving it open for the possibility of a second part. When asked about the same by his Facebook followers in a recent interaction, director Srinath Rajendran confirmed that he does have plans for a sequel. He also added that it might take for such a project to materialize.
‘Kurup’ has its story written by Jithin K Jose. Screenplay is penned jointly by KS Aravind and Daniel Sayooj Nair. Indrajith Sukumaran, Tovino Thomas, Sunny Wayne, Sobhita Dhulipala, Shine Tom Chacko and Anupama Parameswaran are part of the main cast. Cinematographer Nimish Ravi, art director Vinesh Bangalan and editor Vivek Harshan form the core technical team.
Dulquer’s own banner Wayfarer Films has produced the film along with M Star Entertainment.
