Dulquer Salmaan's upcoming Malayalam film, King of Kotha, has garnered unprecedented attention due to its grand vi suals, wide promotions, and glimpses of thrilling action scenes. And now, Nyla Usha, who debuted as an actress in the Malayalam film industry with Salim Ahamed's Kunjananthante Kada opposite Mammootty, has said that she thinks this will be the best film of Dulquer's career.

'King of Kotha belongs in another league'

"King of Kotha is a Dulquer Salmaan film. He has dedicated the last two years to making this movie. I think the result of his hard work is visible in the film. By watching the trailer and teaser, one can see that Dulquer has a different look and getup. King of Kotha will be the best film of Dulquer's career, considering the fights, dance, and performances. He is already a pan-Indian actor, and his character in King of Kotha belongs to that league," Nyla said while speaking with The Fourth Channel.

Speaking about the film and its making, the actress, who plays a key role in King of Kotha, said, "Kotha is a fictional place, and director Abhilash Joshiy didn't want it to resemble any part of Kerala. So, the sets were put up in states outside Kerala and shot on a massive scale. King of Kotha cannot be bracketed as a mass entertainer. The film deals with themes like romance, betrayal, vengeance, and relationships, so it can be called a complete package."
