The Malayalam Kurup film preview event was held in Hyderabad on Tuesday. Dulquer Salmaan, Sobhita Dhulipala, Bharath and Lagadapati Sridhar among others were present at the event.
Speaking at the pre-launch event, Dulquer said: “Kurup it is a special movie for me and for the team. By whatever glimpse you have seen, you can understand the amount of effort we have put into it. I promise you this (glimpse) is only one percent of the movie. I am very sure that it will be an incredible experience for all who will see it. The story and the idea (of the film) are universal and that is why we are releasing it in all languages. It always makes me happy to go back to Hyderabad. I always say that I don’t think there are more movie lovers than the Telugu public. During my first Usthad Hotel movie, when I visited Hyderabad, some fans were saying to me, ‘I saw Usthad Hotel’ and I was like, ‘How did you see it?’ So there was no OTT, and it wasn’t on YouTube. They were like, ‘Oh, we just looked for the best movies of 2012. We found this movie on the list and we watched it.’ That is the level of love they feel for cinema in all languages. I have always been welcomed here as someone from a Telugu state. Within the industry and viewers, there has only been love. So I want to keep working here, definitely Telugu movies. “
“I am about to finish my second Telugu film directed by Hanu Raghavapudi. It is funded by Vyjayanthi Movies. That will also be special. Take a look at our Kurup in theaters. We have been very careful with the Telugu translation. I have baptized it myself. We wanted to look like a pure Telugu movie. You will enjoy it and I can’t wait to hear the feedback. I am waiting with bated breath, excitement and nervousness on November 12th. See you in theaters, “he added.
Directed by Srinath Rajendran, Kurup is funded by Wayfarer Films and M-Star Entertainments.
On the work front, Dulquer Salmaan has Salute, King of Kotha, Othiram Kadakam and Hey Sinamika in the pipeline.
