Prithviraj tasted success with Deepan through the Malayalam movie Puthiyamugham. Puthiyamugham did help Prithvi to gain the much needed action hero image and also save his otherwise flagging career as a solo hero who can guarantee success at the box office. Surely this has given his career a boost as his hands are full with movies like Robinhood, Thanthonny, Pokkiri Raja and the remake of classmates, Ninaithaale Inikkum and Mani Ratnam"s Raavan in Tamil.
Onam has come with new ideas for Prithviraj who shared his views with his audience through a television show and revealed his desire to direct films. He is said to have the story line ready. Prithvi is ready to act under his own direction, provided the story has some scope for that.
