About Kurup Movie:

In mid-2018, Dulquer Salmaan announced the title of the film through social media, directed by Srinath Rajendran which marks their second collaboration after their debut film Second Show.

Srinath Rajendran stated that it took five years of research to get the film on the floors.

The entire production process took six months with the shoot alone taking up 105 days. The locations include Kerala, Mumbai, Dubai, Mangalore, Mysuru, Gujarat and Ahmedabad.

Principal photography began on 1 September 2019 with a customary pooja function held at Palakkad, Kerala. Indrajith Sukumaran joined set the sets on 7 September 2019. Sobhita Dhulipala joined the sets on 21 September 2019.

The first schedule was wrapped on 23 September 2019 with completing all the shoots in Kerala. The second schedule was held in Mumbai and Ahmedabad. In mid-November 2019, Dulquer Salmaan joined the shooting in Dubai.

The final schedule of the film shooting was held in Mangalore. Filming was wrapped on 23 February 2020.

Kurup is the first Indian film to have non-fungible token (NFT) collectibles. As part of the promotion, film merchandise was also released.

A pre-release event had taken place at Hyderabad on 9 November 2021. Ahead of the film’s screening, the visuals and the trailer shots were showcased at Burj Khalifa, Dubai on 10 November 2021, which is the first time for a Malayalam film.

Kurup was planned to release in May 2021 but due to COVID-19 second-wave lockdown, this movie was postponed. The film was released in theatres on 12 November 2021. The movie was released in Malayalam along with dubbed versions in Tamil, Telugu, Hindi and Kannada. Kurup received critical acclaim with praise for the score, production design, characterization and performances (particularly Salmaan, Sukumaran, and Chacko).

The film grossed over ₹112 crore (US$14 million) worldwide and is among the highest-grossing Malayalam films of all time.
