Asin to learn martial arts for new film

Asin who is busy in bollywood is back in Kerala, her home state, and will soon be shooting for Bharath Bala’s multi-lingual The 19th Steps to be shot here later this year.
She has already started preparations and will be back in Kerala later this month to learn the tricky steps of Kalarippayattu, the state’s traditional martial art that is considered a male bastion. Kamal Haasan is playing an important role in the film, which also has popular Japanese actor Tadanobu Asano.
“The film is being produced by Walt Disney and a good portion will be shot in Kerala,” the Kochi girl told reporters. "This is going to be made in Tamil, Japanese and English and shooting will start in the second half of this year. For this I need to learn martial arts because the storyline demands it.”
Kamal Haasan plays the role of an Indian martial arts guru.
