How often do girls get to play the role they have long dreamt of,
that of being a princess? Well for Genelia, this dream has come
true. Genelia, who is currently in Malaysia shooting for south
film, will soon be seen in Santosh Sivan's directorial venture
Urumi. Santosh is all set with the film which revolves
around a 15th century boy who wants to kill Vasco Da Gama. It will
star Genelia along side southern star Prithviraj and will be a
bilingual in Tamil and Malayalam.
While Genelia plays the Portuguese princess, Prithviraj will be
donning the role of the ringleader of the gang that's plotting to
kill Vasco Da Gama.
As far as shooting and dates go, the film is scheduled to hit
the floors this August in Malshej Ghat. While on the other hand,
the title of the film Urumi refers to the eight feet long
flexible sword that is traditionally used in the Kalari a known
martial arts form in Kerala.
