Anu Hasan says her training in Kalaripayattu, a martial art form from Kerala, came in very handy while performing action scenes in the upcoming Tamil action-drama, Valladesam.
Directed by Nantha, the film has her playing a mother who is in search of her kidnapped daughter.

This film marks her comeback to Tamil cinema after six years.

Anu says the fact that the role has so much to offer besides simply being a film mother got her excited
