Prithviraj has been acting in the magnum opus Ravan or Asokavanam by the ace director Mani Ratnam. But Fortune has been gracious enough to offer him The 19th Step, an international project under the direction of Bharat Bala with Kamal Hassan, Asin and the Japanese actor Tadanobu Asano. The script has been handled by none other than the veteran writer M.T. Vasudevan Nair.
As often rightly said, every fortune comes with a tag. So when our hero Prithviraj was floating in the seventh heaven, misfortune struck him in the form of Mani Ratnam's heart attack and the scheduled shooting of the much awaited movie Ravan got delayed. The actor is now caught in a fix as to whether he would be able to make it to both Ravan and The 19th Step. Prithviraj known for his choice of movies and scripts has however decided to give top priority to Mani Ratnam before moving forward in search of greener pastures
