Prithviraj, who has managed to be successful in both Malayalam and Tamil films, is presently at the peak of his career. The actor's Christmas release, Kangaroo, is a hit according to trade circles. Now, Prithvi is looking forward to his Tamil venture, Vellitherai, in which he is teaming up again with Prakashraj. The film is set to release worldwide this Friday.
Meanwhile, Prithviraj maintains that he prefers doing Malayalam films. The actor is already a hot property among cinema distributors and is looking forward to be the rightful heir to superstars Mohanlal and Mammootty.
Prithviraj's next Malayalam release, Thalapavu, based on the life of Naxal leader 'Naxal' Varghese, is directed by Madhupal and is expected to release by March end.
The actor is also doing Robin Hood which reunites him with his Chocolate scriptwriters Sethu and Sachi. Incidentally, the film is produced by Santha Murali and P.K. Murali, who earlier produced Prithvi's biggest hits Classmates and Chocolate. Robin Hood, true to its name, is about a thief who steals from ATMs and helps the needy; it is directed by ace director Joshi.
Two more films are in the pipeline, one with debutant director Vipin Prabhar titled One Way Ticket and an untitled film with Shafi who gave us the delectable Chocolate.
