It is now the chance of Prithviraj to take his best foot forward in Bollywood. The Kerala heartthrob has signed his first Hindi film which will be directed by Anurag Kashyap of the internationally acclaimed films like Dev.D and Black Friday.
Anurag Kashyap was in Chennai recently for the audio launch of ‘Easan’ and he made his admirations for south Indian films public. He also then said he was very impressed with ‘Subramaniapuram’ and would love to make a similar film in Hindi. We don’t know if the Prithviraj starrer will be the remake of ‘Subramaniapuram’.
Sources say Anurag Kashyap and his team were impressed with Prithvi after seeing some of his films is Malayalam. Since the proposed Hindi film has an unusual off beat theme, the choice of actor is convincing they say.
And what more, Prithvi may team up with Rani Mukherjee in the film. The suave beauty is on top of the mind of Anurag for the lead female role.
The last time a popular south Indian hero attempted a film in Bollywood was when Vikran did ‘Raavan’ and Suriya did ‘Raktha Charitra’. Will Prithvi be able to achieve what Suriya and Vikram could not? His fans are very positive.
