Malayalam superstar Prithviraj has been signed to play the lead role in the film titled Teja Bhai and Family. With this movie, he will enter a new genre - comedy thriller, which is his first full length role in this genre.
Teja Bhai and Family will be directed by Deepu Karunakaran of Crazy Goplan fame and produced by P K Muralidharan and Santha Murali of Anantha Vision.
Prithviraj is all praise for the script of the movie and termed it as 'the best". The superstar of Mollywood is expected to gain more fan following after the release of this movie, as the audience has never seen him in a comedy film.
The actor started his journey in Mollywood in 2002 with the movie Nandanam and since then he has worked in more than 50 movies. He has acted in variety of roles but never got the opportunity to try his talent in this genre. So, Teja Bhai and Family is definitely a challenge for the actor.
The film is likely to start shooting in January 2011.
