Mumbai, Feb 14 (IANS) Actor Hrithik Roshan has launched the trailer of Kunal Kapoor’s upcoming film “Veeram” on online platforms like Facebook and Twitter on Tuesday.
Kunal on Tuesday morning took to Twitter, where he announced that Hrithik will be unveiling the trailer of “Veeram”, a trilingual period drama.

“Veeram” is an adaptation of legendary poet Shakespeare’s classic “Macbeth”. Set in 13th century Kerala, “Veeram” resuscitates the real life character made famous through folklore literature and songs.
Sharing broad similarities with the rise and fall of Macbeth, the film spans the journey of Chandu (played by Kunal), a Kalaripayattu warrior who meets a tragic end as an outcome of betrayal.
Produced by Chandrakala Arts, “Veeram” has been shot in three different languages — Hindi, English and Malayalam.
The film is directed by Jayaraj. “Veeram” — Jayaraj’s fifth in his Navarasa series after “Karunam”, “Shantham”, “Bheebhatsa” and “Adbutham” — has been shot in the scenic locales of the Ellora caves in Aurangabad, Fatehpur Sikri in Agra and in a few areas in Kerala.
