With Prithviraj’s much anticipated crime thriller ‘7th Day’ hitting the big screens soon, it comes as no surprise to anyone who knows of the young and versatile actor that he plans to take on humorous projects for a change.
Anil Radhakrishna Menon, who debuted last year as an independent director with the hit, ‘North 24 Kaatham’, has announced that Prithvi will be the lead of his next comedy flick about a gang of thieves named ‘Sapthamashri Thaskarah’. The movie which was originally set to star Asif Ali and Jayasurya changed its course when Prithvi read the script and showed great interest in the lead role. It is to be produced under the banner of Prithviraj’s own August Cinemas. Another big name, Fahad Fazil, may also join the cast in an important role.
The next fun project in the pipeline for Prithvi would be script writer turned director Dileesh Nair’s ‘Tamaar Padaar’ produced by Rejaputhra Renjith. This one is rumoured to be a full length comical family entertainer. Dileesh Nair has proven himself a great story teller as a script writer with movies like ‘Salt n Pepper’, ‘Da Thadiya’ and ‘Idukki Gold’.
We’ll simply have to see what the stars have in store for Prithvi’s funny side on the big screen..
