Prithviraj, the star of the season, recently revealed that he is really jealous of his elder brother, Indrajith. He was talking in the recent interview given to a popular Malayalam media.
The actor feels that Indrajith has been lucky enough to play a bunch of variety roles from the beginning of his career, and was never stuck with an image. He can easily adapt all types of roles without any inhibitions.
Indrajith can brilliantly play a negative role, with the same ease of doing a comical role. Prithviraj feels that his brother enjoys an exceptional freedom as an actor, and that makes him extremely jealous.
Prithvi also points out that film-makers have not been approaching him with variety roles. Even though it is wonderful to play the lead character in a movie; the actor feels that it is a kind of restriction.
Lead actors are usually offered with the similar characters and it is very difficult to choose the best among them. But for a character artist, there are many more options to choose.
We agree to Prithvi's statements; but would like to remind him that he is the only lead actor who has been courageous enough to experiment with his role. Kudos for that...
