Upcoming Malayalam actor Jayasurya has replaced another popular
actor Prithviraj in director M Padmakumar's forthcoming film
Pathiramanal. Originally, Prithvi was chosen for the lead
role in it, but he himself has opted out of the project stating his
date issues. Sources claim that the Malayalam star is busy with
nearly 4-5 films and dates of those films clashed with this film.
Film Pathiramanal is produced by Dhanush Productions.
Babu Janardhanan is writing the script for it. Directed by M
Padmakumar, it features actress Rima Kallingal in the heroine role.
Tamil star Samuthirakani, who debuted in Malayalam with the movie
Shikaar, will play the second lead in it. It is expected
to start rolling in Alappuzha from this March and will be offered
in July 2012.
However, Prithvi has worked in the movie Vaasthavam,
which has been directed by M Padmakumar and scripted by Babu
Janardhanan. He has won Kerala State Award for his wonderful
performance in it. Now, Padmakumar and Janardhanan are coming back
together with Pathiramanal, which has made big headlines
for its interesting story line. Only the release of the film will
decide whether it would be a big loss for Prithvi.
