Genelia D’Souza to learn martial arts

Genelia D’SouzaGenelia D’Souza is all set to debut in the Malayalam film industry. The girl next door will be playing a Portuguese princess in the much awaited film ‘Urumi’. For her role in the movie, she plans to look gorgeous as the princess, and at the same time, she also plans to surprise her fans with some awe-inspiring martial art stunts. Urumi is based on the attempted assassination of Portuguese explorer Vasco Da Gama, who arrived in Kappad near Calicut, in 1498. The sources reveal that the actress was initially a bit worried about doing action sequences where she had to perform Kalari which is the most ancient system of physical self-defense and martial technique. That’s when she remembered her friend and ‘Ready’ costar Ram.

The actress informed her director that Ram, who has trained in Kalari martial art, had helped her a lot and enlightened her about the art while practicing it.

Genelia will also go through a short training in martial arts to play her role better.
