Speaking to a leading newspaper, Prithviraj said, “I pulled out of Mumbai Police as it was getting delayed because Roshan was busy with Casanova. The original plan was to film the movie during July and release it by December this year."
Roshan Andrews, who was busy filming Casanova with Mohanlal couldn't complete the film as Mohanlal had given out impromptu dates to his best friend and director Priyadarshan for his Bollywood flick Tezz and Malayalam film Oru Marubhoomi Katha.
Prithviraj, who is popular for his outspoken behaviour decided to quit Mumbai Police as he was tired of the delay. Meanwhile, it is Mammootty who has cashed in on Prithviraj's loss. Mammootty has now been roped in to play the lead role in Mumbai Police.
