Dulquer Salmaan’s Kurup made on a budget of Rs 35 crores!
Dulquer Salmaan starrer ‘Kurup’ is a very ambitious film with a star-studded cast and a strong technical crew. Directed by Srinath Rajendran, the film is based on Kerala’s most wanted criminal, Sukumara Kurup. Since the makers had to recreate different time periods and locations, it turned out to be a very expensive project. It is learnt that the film is being made on a budget of around Rs 35 crores. The team shot the film in multiple schedules in Kerala, various parts of North India, Mangalore and in Dubai. Dulquer’s Wayfarer Films is producing it along with M Star Entertainment.
‘Kurup’ has its story written by Jithin K Jose while screenplay is penned jointly by KS Aravind and Daniel Sayooj Nair. Indrajith Sukumaran, Tovino Thomas, Sunny Wayne, Sobhita Dhulipala, Shine Tom Chacko. Vijayaraghavan, Surabhi Lekshmi and many others are part of the cast.
On the technical front, cinematographer Nimish Ravi of ‘Luca’ fame, music director Sushin Shyam, art director Vinesh Bangalan and editor Vivek Harshan form the core team. Regarding the release, the film was originally supposed to hit screens this week during the Eid season. But due to the Covid-19 scenario, it seems like we will have to wait a little longer to experience the film in big screen.
