Dulquer Salmaan, the young actor is all set to play the real-life criminal Sukumara Kurup in the upcoming autobiographical drama, Kurup. The movie, which marks Dulquer Salmaan’s second association with the young filmmaker Srinath Rajendran, is expected to hit the theaters once the lockdown ends. Reportedly, Kurup has now landed in legal trouble.
According to the reports, the family of Chacko, the person who was murdered by Sukumara Kurup, has filed a lawsuit against the movie. According to Chacko’s son Jithin, the teaser of Kurup hints that the movie has glorified the criminal who murdered his father to stage an insurance fraud.
Jithin, who was in his mother’s womb when his father Chacko was murdered by Sukumara Kurup, stated that he was terrified by the name of Kurup, who escaped the law. After watching the teaser, it is evident that the criminal is being portrayed as an anti-hero in the film. Chacko’s family also suggested that the Dulquer Salmaan starrer might give a wrong impression about Kurup to the younger generations.
