Unda has real-action and Mammootty himself has done all the stunts: Sham Kaushal
Shoot for Mammootty starrer ‘Unda’ is currently progressing at a brisk pace in Kasargod. The movie directed by ‘Anuraga Karikkin Vellam’ (AKV) fame Khalid Rahman has Mammootty in the role of a police sub-Inspector. The film traces events that occur when an unit of policemen from Kerala reach the Naxalite prone areas in North India on election duty. The makers have planned to shoot the movie as realistic as possible.
For that, they have got Sham Kaushal, a renowned stunt choreographer from Bollywood, to compose the action sequences. He is best known for his works in movies like ‘Dangal’, ‘Krrish 3’ and ‘Bhajrangi Bhaijaan’. Some of his other noted works include ‘Gunday’, ‘Padmaavat’, Bajirao Mastani, ‘Dhoom 3’ and ‘Phantom’.
Team ‘Unda’ recently shot the movie’s climax portions, which involves a riveting action block. In a chat with NIE, Kaushal was all praise for Mammootty. They’re working together after 22 long years and Kaushal was impressed by how Mammootty carries the same energy that he had back then. Since ‘Unda’ is not a larger-than-life story, the movie demands organic, real action and Mammootty did all the stunts by himself.
Unda’s cast comprises of Vinay Forrt, Shine Tom Chacko, Jacob Gregory, Sudhi Koppa, Arjun Ashokan, Dileesh Pothan and Alencier Ley Lopez. Krishnan Sethukumar of Movie Mill is presenting the movie in association with Gemini Studio. After wrapping up the ongoing schedule in Kasargaod, the team will be shifting to Wayanad and later to Chhattisgarh. The movie is expected to hit screens by mid-2019.
