Kurup sneak peek video out on Dulquer Salmaan’s birthday
It is Dulquer Salmaan’s birthday today and as expected, the makers of ‘Kurup’ have come with a new update. A short sneak peek video has just been released online. The film directed by Srinath Rajendran is based on India’s most wanted fugitive, Sukumara Kurup.
Kurup is accused of murdering a person named Chacko. He allegedly committed the crime to fake his own death and claim an insurance amount of Rs 8 lakhs by killing Chacko who bore a resemblance with him. He is supposed to have fled abroad after the incident and has been absconding for over 30 years now. The Chacko murder case is one of the longest standing cases in the judicial history of Kerala.
‘Kurup’ has its story written by Jithin K Jose and 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. Dulquer’s Wayfarer Films is producing the film along with M Star Entertainment.
Regarding the release, ‘Kurup’ was originally supposed to hit screens earlier this year during the Eid season. But due to the Covid-19 scenario, the makers had to postpone it. No further updates has been made yet.
