Press Release

Bollywood hunk Suniel Shetty, best remembered for his muscles and action roles, will be seen in an entirely different role in Anant Mahadevan's Red Alert - The War Within, a realistic depiction of naxalism.

If one needs proof of Suniel's scintillating performance, the actor won the Best Actor Award at the South Asian International Film Festival (SAIFF). Obviously, the actor is elated and proud of the fact that his hard work has paid off. The award has made him conscious of roles he would be choosing and portraying in future.

Talking of hard work in the film, Suniel admits to turning himself inside out for the role. The guy who has played a fearless hero in all his films, in Red Alert he had to play a helpless and hapless farmer, who is lost and unkempt. He changed his body language completely. In Red Alert, he plays a farmer who holds the gun for the first time. So, director Mahadevan had him refer to the naive Dith Pran character in Roland Jaffe’s Killing Fields.

One can witness the portrayal that Suniel is so passionate about when the film releases on the 9th of July.
