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.
