Shobhita Dhulipala is all praise for the film Kurup, which she calls 'eccentric and endearing'
Sobhita Dhulipala, who plays a major role in Dulquer Salmaan's upcoming Malayalam film Kurup, says the film is very special to her.
In a statement put out by Sobhita following the film's wrap up, the Made in Heaven actor said the Srinath Rajendran-directorial is "eccentric and endearing at once" and praised cinematographer Nimish Ravi, art director Benglan, Dulquer, and the entire team for their efforts.
Sobhita took to Twitter to share the news with her followers. In a series of tweets, she was all praise for the film.
It’s a wrap on #Kurup, my first full-fledged Malayalam film that is eccentric and endearing at once.— Sobhita Dhulipala (@sobhitaD) February 23, 2020
As I type this, it occurs to me that this is the first ‘wrap post’ I’m documenting so I’ll just do it here online.
This film is special for it’s obvious reasons like the astute pic.twitter.com/msgCi901I2
She concluded her note with, "Cheers to cultural diversity, cheers to the truth of imagination, cheers to the courage that stays consistent."
Sobhita recently made her Malayalam debut in Geetu Mohandas' Moothon, albeit in a Hindi-speaking role.
Kurup, which is based on the exploits of the still-absconding criminal Sukumara Kurup, will have Dulquer appearing in different get-ups. The film's stellar ensemble cast also features Indrajith Sukumaran as a cop hot on the trail of Kurup, while Shine Tom Chacko and Sunny Wayne reportedly play Kurup's associates.
Palakkad, Hyderabad, Gujarat, Ahmedabad, and Dubai were the filming locations. Bankrolled by Dulquer's Wayfarer Films, it is expected to hit theatres in May. An official announcement in this regard is awaited.
