Reportedly, the team was planning to start the filming of Kanal, from the first week of August. But later, the project was preponed to May, due to the delay of some already announced Mohanlal project.
But the decision of the crew was not favourable for Prithviraj, who has already committed two upcoming projects for the months of May and June. Thus, the actor decided to back out from Kanal.
As per the close sources, Prithviraj will join the final schedules of his upcoming projects Anarkali and Ennu Ninte Moideen, in May. The actor will later join the sets of Nadhirshah's Amar Akbar Anthony.
If the rumours are to be true, Prithviraj has moved out of Loham, the upcoming Mohanlal project directed by Ranjith. The actor was supposed to make a cameo appearance in the film.
Earlier, Lal Jose's Mohanlal-Prithviraj project titled Cousins was shelved, due to the creative differences between Mohanlal and the director. According to the reports, a Mohanlal-Prithviraj movie will not materialise in the near future.
