The success of Prtihviraj’s 7th Day which came out on the 12th of this month is testament to the actor’s versatility. And now the actor plans to keep the success going by switching to comedy in Dileesh Nair’s Tamaar Padaar which began shooting in Sabarimala.
Prithviraj, of course, after his controversial run in with the media over some careless remarks a few years back, has been on a career path that has received positive response from the fans as well as the critics by choosing very different roles that test his calibre as an actor. He proved this by playing a mature cop in his forties in 7th Day.
However, Prithvi has never done a full on comedy movie and it seems now is the time! Dileesh Nair, who started out as a scriptwriter and came out with some golden ones like Salt n Pepper and Da Thadiya, has now picked up the proverbial megaphone for Tamaar Padaar.
The movie is being produced by Renjith Rejaputhra, under the banner of Rejaputhra Films. It has received some buzz from the media and is promised to be a laugh riot. Dileesh’s track record being what it is and Prithviraj’s choice of roles these days, it does look like the promises will be kept.
Prithvi’s shift from drama to comedy also comes in the wake of the news that popular comedic actor Suraj Venjaaramoodu has just been nominated for a national award in the Best Actor category for his brilliant portrayal of a sweeper in the movie Perariyathavar.
Mollywood is definitely lucky to have artists who take it upon themselves to never get in to a rut and always entertain the fans by challenging their talent.
