Neeta Pillai as Rithu Ram in The Kung Fu Master!
Director Abrid Shine’s new film ‘The Kung Fu Master’ is getting ready for release on January 24. Neeta Pillai, who grabbed attention with her fabulous performance in ‘Poomaram’, has done the lead role in the film. She plays a character named Rithu Ram and a new poster featuring her has just been released online.
Neeta had undergone intense training in martial arts before working on the film. She was also injured multiple times while shooting. Along with her, Jiji Scaria and Sanoop Dinesh have played the other major roles. Sooraj S Kurup, Anju Balachandran, Ramamoorthy, Rajan Varghese, Vinod Mathew, Hareesh Babu, Jayesh K, Rangith PB and James J are also part of the supporting cast.
‘The Kung Fu Master’ is anything unlike what the director has done previously. It is an out and out martial arts action film set in Himalayas. As per the makers, it will be a refreshingly new kind of film that Malayalam cinema has not seen before. While Abrid Shine’s earlier films were all based on his personal experiences or the things that he has seen in his life, ‘The Kung Fu Master’ is a completely fictious film that is inspired from the action films of Jackie Chan, Jet Li and Bruce Lee.
The film produced under the banner of Full On Studio Frames is slated to hit screens on January 24.
