So far we have seen bubbly beauty Genelia in romantic and comedy roles but in 'Urumi' she will be seen in a complete new role.
She is playing the role of a Portuguese princess and performed amazing martial art stunts. In fact, Genelia has undergone a short training in martial arts for performing this role perfectly. The film is based on the attempt made in killing Portuguese explorer Vasco Da Gamma, when he reached Kappadu near Kozhikode in the year 1498.
Directed by Santosh Sivan the film has Prithviraj, Arya, Jagathy Sreekumar, Vidya Balan, Tabu and Prabhu Deva in the lead roles. The film is releasing on March 31, 2011 as the big summer release in Malayalam, Tamil, Hindi and English.
Santosh Sivan, Prithviraj and Shaji Natesan produced the film under the banner of August Cinema. Music is by Deepak Dev. The trailer which was out recently is showered with praises for Santosh Sivan’s brave attempt and presentation.
