Dulquer on backing King of Kotha as producer

Dulquer Salman, who was recently also seen in Raj Nidimoru and Krishna DK’s Netflix series Guns and Gulaabs, had said in an interview with news agency PTI that he had been dreaming of making movies that did ‘big theatrical numbers’ for a while.

Opening up about why he decided to back King of Kotha as a producer, the actor had said, “In the current climate, people want theatrical experience. In Malayalam, we do so much of smaller, intimate realistic storytelling… I was like, ‘You need to draw people to theatres. They should come and celebrate’. It should be visually spectacular and technically sound.”

King of Kotha is Dulquer Salmaan’s seventh project as a producer, but first-period action-drama in his over a decade-long career. The actor, who has been part of King of Kotha since its ideation stage in 2019, said the narrative demanded that the movie be made on a certain budget.

“The massive tentpole films that we all celebrate are not made easily. There’s a lot of effort, time, and money that go into it,” the actor had said, explaining what went into creating the massive sets of the film that was reportedly made on a budget of 50-60 crore.
