The makers of Veeram officially launched the second look from the film today. The poster shows the actors engaged in a duel. It is a beautiful depiction of Kalaripayattu, a south Indian martial art form.
The ripped bodies of both actors and their warrior stance while they lock their swords will definitely give you goosebumps! Adapted from the Shakespearean Classic Macbeth, Veeram stars Kunal Kapoor. It is an epic tale based on the life of the warrior Chandu and set in North Malabar Kerala.
Directed by National Award-winning filmmaker Jayaraj Nair, the film has been produced by Chandramohan Pillai and Pradeep Rajan of Chandrakala Arts.
Coming out from his fun-loving image, Kunal Kapoor will be seen experimenting his acting skills by portraying a warrior with grey shades in this upcoming trilingual epic. Despite it being his first non-Bollywood project, the actor says he didn’t face any culture shock while working down South.
“There was no culture shock of any sort. The character that I have played is one which I have never played before. Chandu Chekavar is an anti-hero. It’s the first time I am playing a larger-than-life character. Theirs’s a lot of grey shade. But I wasn’t shocked culturally at all,” Kunal earlier told IANS.
Take a look at the complete poster:
“We had a lot of foreign technicians on set. The make-up artist — Trefor Proud — was someone who has won an Oscar. Our action choreographer — Allan Poppleton — was from New Zealand. So there was a lot of foreign crew. There was a mix of people working together,” added the actor, best known for his roles in films like Rang De Basanti, Hattrick, Don 2 and Kaun Kitne Paani Mein.
