In the movie, Dulquer plays Sukumaran Kurup, the most wanted criminal in Kerala. The ambitious project is expected to start rolling in 2018, and DQ says he is very thrilled to be part of the movie.

"So at long last. Nearly 6 years later I reunite with my brother Srinath Rajendran the director of my debut film Second Show for a very ambitious film. I think we've discussed this during Second Show. But I guess everything has its own time. Early 2018 we hope to go on the floors with this film. And it's something I'm super super thrilled about. Happy to share this with all of you☺☺ [sic], Dulquer posted on his Facebook page.

Who is Sukumara Kurup?

Kurup was accused in the murder of Chacko, who was burnt inside a car in 1984. It is believed that he committed the crime to fake his own death to claim an insurance amount of Rs. 8 lakh as Chacko bore similarities with Kurup. Since then, he has been absconding. The murder case is one of the longest pending cases in the history of Kerala.
