Dulquer Salmaan and Sunny Deol's Chup, directed by Balki, received a mixed response from critics and audiences alike. The film is the story of a serial killer, who kidnaps movie reviewers. The film had its OTT premiere on November 25 on Zee5. Within 24 hours, the film recorded 30 million viewing minutes.
Dulquer Salmaan said, “Stepping into the shoes of a twisted serial killer Danny has been the most experimental role to date. Identifying with someone who wreaks havoc across the city murdering critics, the mere thought is frightening. The narrative delves into every layer of a criminal's mind, challenging the viewers’ psyche and morality in the process. Chup: Revenge of the Artist is not your usual detective drama. The relentless and heart-stopping thriller will amp up your expectations.”
Sunny Deol said, "Essaying the character of IG Arvind Mathur was a terrific experience. It was more like solving a jigsaw puzzle. The movie will be available on ZEE5 in 5 different languages and without revealing much I urge the audience to watch the film. It will leave you wide-eyed with the deception and suspense.”
