Kabir Duhan Singh to play the antagonist in Samantha's Shakunthalam
He will play King Asura in Gunasekhar's directorial venture, which also stars Dev Mohan, Allu Arha among others
Kabir Duhan Singh is set to star in Samantha's upcoming period film, Shakunthalam.
He will play King Asura in Gunasekhar's directorial venture, which also stars Dev Mohan, Allu Arha among others.
Calling it his landmark project and discussing more about the kind of preparations that went behind his role, Kabir said, "The headgear was about 10 kilos, and so was the armour set. Jewellery added to that weight. With those costumes, we shot for more than 10 days. I only got a few bruises and scratches. But, I feel like all of the hard work is worth it. I picked up sword fighting for Shakunthalam. The training came in handy during the shooting. Dev Mohan plays King Dushyanta in Shakunthalam. We had to participate in a war sequence, which came out so well."
Being part of a mythological film, Kabir also had to deliver lengthy dialogues. Talking about the process, Kabir said, "Mythology is one of my favorite genres. So, I thoroughly enjoyed working on the dialogues, gestures, expressions, and my body language."
Apart from Shakunthalam, Samantha also has films like Yashoda and Kaathu Vaakula Rendu Kaadhal in various stages of production.
