Dulquer Salmaan will reportedly play the lead role of the real-life character Sukumara Kuruppu, an infamous murderer who is still in the hiding. Dulquer has already announced on his Facebook post that this is a dream project for the actor. Sreenath Raveendran will direct the movie.
In 1984, Sukumara Kuruppu murdered a person named Chacko and disguised as the murdered person to claim a huge insurance amount from the company Kuruppu worked in. Sukumara Kuruppu, who is on the list of the most-wanted people of the police, is still in his hiding. There are already a few movies that were made based on his life which include Adoor Gopalakrishnan's 'Pinneyum' released in 2016, which had Dileep and Kavya Madhavan in lead roles. However, the Dulquer starrer promises to be different from all other movies based on Kuruppu's enigmatic life.
Jithin K Jose and Jishnu Sreekumar have teamed up for the script work of this movie which according to reports will be produced by Dulquer himself. The shooting of the movie will reportedly commence soon.
