Kurup, the Dulquer Salmaan starrer has already emerged as the biggest box office success of Malayalam cinema in 2021, so far. The crime thriller has also emerged as the third all-time highest-grossing Malayalam film at the worldwide box office. Now, Kurup has broken the records set by Mammootty's Masterpiece and Mohanlal's Pulimurugan at the Tamil Nadu box office.
According to the latest updates from the trade experts, Kurup (including all language versions) earned a total gross collection of over Rs. 5.41 Crore from the Tamil Nadu box office. Thus, the Dulquer Salmaan starrer broke the record, which was previously held by Mammootty's Masterpiece and Mohanlal's Pulimurugan.
The trade experts also suggest that the Srinath Rajendran directorial has already crossed the 100-Crore mark at the worldwide box office when it completes the first 11 days of its release. Dulquer Salmaan, the leading man cum producer of Kurup is expected to announce the highly exciting update on social media with a special post, post very soon.
When it comes to the overseas box office, Kurup is currently the third highest-grossing Malayalam film after Mohanlal's Lucifer and Pulimurugan. The Dulquer Salmaan starrer has earned a total gross collection of Rs. 30.03 Crore from the overseas box office, within the first 11 days of its release.
Kurup has thus placed its leading man-producer Dulquer Salmaan as the most bankable actor of the young generation of the Malayalam film industry. If things proceed at the same rate, the Srinath Rajendran directorial has all the chances to cross the glorious 150-Crore mark, when it comes to its total business including the lifetime box office collections.
The crime thriller, which features Dulquer Salmaan in the titular role, is based on the real-life fugitive Sukumara Kurup. Indrajith Sukumaran, Shine Tom Chacko, and Shobita Dhulipala played the other pivotal roles in the movie. Kurup is jointly bankrolled by Dulquer Salmaan's Wayfarer Films and M-Star Entertainments.
