The film also stars Murali Gopy, Manikandan R Achari, Navas Vallikkunnu, Srindaa, Naslen, Sagar Surya, and Mammukkoya.
Speaking with Silverscreen India, Shine said, “I play the role of a Panchayat-level politician, a ward member from Wayanad in the film. My character’s name is Karim. Apart from me, there are several characters from the town that are part of the film. Roshan Mathew’s character is named Ibrahim, Srindaa plays a character named Suma, Mammukoya plays a character named Moosa. Prithviraj plays the role of a young man from Wayanad, he’s not a politician.”
Shine said that the entire shooting schedule spanned 24 days.
“It was a very planned and fast-paced shooting schedule. The shooting started on December 9 and wrapped up by January 4, with a break in between. I joined the set on December 13 for shooting my portions. I was shooting for two films- Adi and Kuruthi– simultaneously. Most of the shooting for Kuruthi happened inside a house in Erattupetta. For the outdoor scenes, we were shooting in a forest in Vagamon between December 25 and January 1,” he said.
Taking to social media to talk about the film on Monday, Prithviraj wrote that it had a fast-paced shooting schedule.
“Kuruthi has to be one of the most intense, fast paced shooting schedules I have ever been a part of. To make a full length feature film that has songs, thrills, suspense, high risk scenes, choreographed action and chase sequences and stunts in the deep forest…all this in such a short span of time, and yet achieve top quality technical finesse is incredible,” he wrote.
Manu Warrier, the film’s director, also made the announcement on social media.
