Prithviraj is a very happy man these days. He won the state award for the best actor in Malayalam. He also has a series of films lined up in both Malayalam and Tamil. His most recent release in Tamil is Mozhi with Jyotika as the heroine. The film also stars Prakashraj and Swarnamalya in important roles. Prithviraj also is all set to star in the Tamil version of Udayanaanu Thaaram. Vellithira is the name of the film.
"Rajinikanth saw my performance in Mozhi and was so impressed that he called me up over the phone and congratulated me. He had watched the film a few days ago, along with his entire family. He also told me that I speak very good Tamil. I still am reeling under the pleasure of hearing those compliments from him," he said.
What are your new films in Malayalam?
I have one with director Shafi. As soon as I complete it, there also is Khaki. Vellithirai is the name of my new film in Tamil. Prakashraj was initially planning to direct the film but he has changed his mind now.
