The Priest and Kurup to clash at the box office!!
This Eid, Kerala box office might witness a huge clash between the father-son duo of Mammootty and Dulquer Salmaan. It is heard that both their films ‘The Priest’ and ‘Kurup’ are eyeing to release during the Eid season in May. Both the films have pretty high expectations, so chances are high for the makers to avert a clash. While ‘Kurup’ is produced by Dulquer Salmaan himself, ‘The Priest’ is backed by Anto Joseph and B Unnikrishnan.
‘Kurup’ directed by ‘Second Show’ fame Srinath Rajendran is based on the life of the infamous criminal, Sukumara Kurup. Along with Dulquer, the film’s star-studded cast includes Indrajith Sukumaran, Sobhita Dhulipala, Tovino Thomas, Sunny Wayne, Shine Tom Chacko and many others. After months of shooting in various locations across India and in the Gulf region, the team called it a wrap only recently. They have a solid three-month gap to indulge in the post-production and promotion works.
‘The Priest’ is directed by debutant Jofin T Chacko. Interestingly, the film got materialized after some sudden developments. Mammootty already had signed for other projects, but he accommodated immediate dates after being impressed by the script. It is said to be a dark thriller with a horror element in it. Manju Warrier, Nikhila Vimal, Sreenath Bhasi, Saniya Iyappan, Ameya Mathew, Venkitesh and many others are part of the cast. Shoot is still progressing and the makers are expected to give more updates after its completion.
