His first release of 2011 will be the eagerly awaited Ranjit Shankar directed Arjunan Sakshi on January 28, followed by Makeup Man on February 3, where he plays a guest role.
2011 is going to be a crucial year for Prithviraj.
He is likely to be seen in nearly 8 to 10 films including his magnum opus, the Santosh Sivan directed Urumi. Last year with Anwar, Prithviraj proved that he can get a good opening, but trade feels he has to deliver a hit and silence his legion of detractors.
Arjunan Sakshi has become very important for Prithviraj. It is his solo hero film where Ann Augustine plays his heroine.
In Makeup Man he is doing only a cameo as Jayaram and Bobban Kunchacko are the two male leads in the film.
