Coming up on January 22nd, is a film that Salman Khan has had in his mind for over 20 years, Veer. Veer, is an “epic love story of a warrior” and promises to be an epic night at the movies. The period piece is directed by Anil Sharma and is being produced by Eros Entertainment. Along with Salman Khan, the film also stars Zarine Khan, Sohail Khan, Mithun Chakraborty and Jackie Shroff.
From the misty pages of history comes a story of extreme valour, fierce pride and poignant love. As the British enslave India with their devious divide and rule policy, Kings and Nawabs fall to their guile and cunning and entrust their precious kingdoms to the foreigners. Except for the brave Pindharis, who prefer death to dishonor and will fight to their last breath to save their land…their mother. The bravest, the toughest, the strongest of the Pindharis is Veer. As Veer takes on the might of the British Empire, he also has to fight the conniving King of Madhavgarh as well as his own jealous tribesmen. But then the stakes are high…at stake is his love for Princess Yashodhara… At stake is his thirst to avenge his father’s dishonour… At stare is his very existence itself. Cannons roar, swords clash in fierce battle, the dead pile up…and when the dust settles down on the blood soaked land…One valiant warrior stands head and shoulders about them all-Veer.
