Kunal, on Tuesday morning took to Twitter, where he announced that Hrithik will be unveiling the trailer of Veeram, a trilingual period drama. "Launching today on Facebook at 10 by Hrithik Roshan, Veeram," Kunal tweeted on Tuesday morning.

Hrithik shared the link of the trailer on his official Facebook and Twitter page and called it 'incredible'.  Kunal retweeted the Kaabil star's post and thanked him.

Veeram is an adaptation of the legendary poet William Shakespeare's classic Macbeth. Set in the 13th century Kerala, Veeram resuscitates the real-life character made famous through folklore, literature and songs.

Sharing broad similarities with the rise and fall of Macbeth, the film spans the journey of Chandu (played by Kunal), a Kalaripayattu warrior, who meets a tragic end as an outcome of betrayal.

Produced by Chandrakala Arts, Veeram has been shot in three different languages -- Hindi, English and Malayalam.

The film is directed by Jayaraj and is his fifth in the Navarasa series after Karunam, Shantham, Bheebhatsa and Adbutham. It has been shot in the scenic locales of the Ellora caves in Aurangabad, Fatehpur Sikri in Agra and in a few areas in Kerala.
