The Telugu dubbed version of Mohanlal's Onam blockbuster, Oppam is slated to be released soon. The film, which marked the 40th collaboration of Mohanlal and director​ Priyadarshan,​wa​s bankrolled by actor's friend Antony Perumbavoor under the banner of Aashirvad Cinemas. Oppam is the tale of a visually impaired man who becomes unwittingly entangled in a murder mystery​.

Earlier, Dilip Kumar Bolugoti of Overseas Network Entertainment (ONE)​, who bought the Telugu rights of Oppam had planned to release the dubbed version on 30th December 2016, but later postponed due to the dull phase of year-end period. And now, it has been finalised as he locked the release date of Kanupapa on 3 February 2017.

​"​I play a blind man in this thriller. We are happy to release Kanupapaon 3 February. I hope the Telugu audience will make our movie a success as have the audience here​"​​,​ Mohanlal said.​

Oppam was the first Malayalam release for Lalettan in 2016 and the film had a grand welcome at the Kerala Box Office. Upon its release, the Mohanlal - Priyadarshan film, has overpowered the opening week collections of Nivin Pauly's Premam.

The thriller has completed 100-theatrical run and emerged as the third all-time highest Malayalam grosser at the Kerala Box Office.

With Kanupapa, Mohanlal will be looking for hat-trick of hits at the Telugu Box Office as well. The actor's previous Telugu releases, Janatha Garage and Manyam Puli were super hits at the Tollywood Box Office.
