Prithviraj, a promising actor in the Malayalam industry, was successful enough to create his own space in B-Town, with his first movie Aiyyaa opposite Rani Mukherjee. He did Aurangazeb after that and was in the news when he bagged a role in Happy New Year along with Shahrukh Khan, directed by Farah Khan. The film also cast Abhishek Bachchan and Boman Irani. Now rumours say that he is out from the flick.
The news could be a mere gossip as it is not confirmed whether he will act in the film or not. He was to play the fourth lead in the movie. But the buzz is that he will be replaced by Nazaruddin Shah's son Vivaan Shah, who was earlier seen in Saat.
Prithviraj is currently in London, shooting for his Malayalam flick London Bridge. He has completed his project Memories, directed by Jeethu Joseph. Meghna Raj plays the female lead in the film. He also has an upcoming flick in Tamil alongside Siddharth.
The shooting of Happy New Year was delayed due to Shahrukh's illness, and Prithviraj earlier had commented that he is not aware when its shooting will kick off. Anyways, the news is yet to get its confirmation and hopes everything will be well for Prithvi in B-Town.
