Exactly 10 days ahead of its official theatrical release, the trailer of Kunal Kapoor’s highly-anticipated upcoming period drama “Veeram” was unveiled by Bollywood actor Hrithik Roshan on his Facebook page.
Hrithik shared the link of the trailer on his official Facebook and Twitter page and called it ‘incredible’. Kunal retweeted the Kaabil star’s post and thanked him.

The film is an adaptation of William Shakespeare’s play, Macbeth and tells the story of Chandu Chekavar, an infamous warrior in the 13th century from North Malabar.
Needless to say, Kunal Kapoor is killing it as Chanthu Chekavar. The highlight of the trailer is the music composed by Jeff Roan, who is known for films like “Phantom”, “God of Water” and “Traffic III”.
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.
Veeram, directed by award-winning filmmaker Jayaraj, will hit the screens on February 24. “Spurned in love. Coming for revenge on the 24th of Feb #chanduchekavar @VeeramOfficial,” Kunal had confirmed the release on his Twitter page recently.
