Prithviraj, the talented actor, is all set to join hands with senior film-maker Priyadarshan for the first time in his career. Interestingly, the project will be majorly filmed in Sri Lanka.
The movie is produced by actor Maniyanpilla Raju. The title and rest of the star cast will be announced soon. The project will start rolling immediately after Priyadarshan wraps up Mohanlal starrer Oppam.
Earlier, Priyadarshan was planning to direct a political thriller, with Mohanlal and Prithviraj in the lead role. The movie, which was expected to be scripted by the director himself, is reportedly shelved.
Prithviraj is currently filming for the upcoming Jeethu Joseph-directed crime drama Oozham. The shooting is progressing at the various locations of Coimbatore and Kochi and will be released for Onam.
Karnan, the highly anticipated Prithviraj movie, is also expected to start rolling soon. The movie, which is directed by RS Vimal, is said to be the most expensive ever made in the history of Mollywood.
Aadujeevitham, another Prithviraj project which is directed by Blessy, is reportedly postponed due to the delay in pre-production. Instead, the actor is planning to join the sets of Priyadarshan movie.
