The intriguing first look poster of Dulquer Salmaan's next film, King of Kotha, has been released and it has taken the social media by storm. The poster features an intense looking Dulquer Salmaan smoking a cigar and his look tells us that this one is going to be raw and gritty, loaded with action. The poster piques our curiosity and it looks like DQ has got to play an intriguing author-backed role. More details regarding the project are yet to be known. Aishwarya Lekshmi plays the female lead in this movie and the shooting is currently taking place at Karaikkudi, Tamil Nadu. King of Kotha is directed by Abhilash Joshy who has been a close friend of Dulquer since childhood.

Abhilash is the son of veteran Malayalam filmmaker Joshiy who has delivered several blockbuster hit films with Mammootty. King Of Kotha is Dulquer's dream project and he will be looking forward to continuing the success streak. His last three films in three languages - Kurup (Malayalam), Sita Ramam (Telugu), and the recently released Chup (Hindi) have emerged successful at the box office and one can surely hope King Of Kotha to join the list.
