Dulquer Salmaan, the charming actor will be next seen in Kurup, the highly anticipated autobiographical drama. The project, which is was originally supposed to hit the theatres in 2020, was delayed multiple times due to the novel coronavirus pandemic. Now, the latest reports suggest that the Dulquer Salmaan project is gearing up for its theatrical release.
According to the sources close to the theatre owners association, Kurup has been confirmed to hit the theatres by the second or third week of November 2021. However, the makers are yet to finalise the release date of the Dulquer Salmaan starrer. If things go as planned, the makers will soon announce the release date, along with a special teaser or poster very soon.
