Bollywood actress Vidya Balan is making her debut in Malayalam
through a film titled Urumi directed by Santhosh Sivan.
She is going to do a dance number in the film and the particular
sequence will be shot in Mumbai.
Vidya had earlier rejected offers from Tamil and Malayalam but
now she has decided to act in Urumi, starring Prithviraj
and Genelia D'Souza in the lead roles.
This movie is taken from the backdrop of a historical event,
based on the great explorer Vasco De Gama, who landed in Kappad
near Kozhikode. Prithviraj dons the role of a gang leader, who
tries to resist Vasco De Gama.
