James And Alice, the Prithviraj movie which hit the theatres on May 5th, has been receiving positive reviews from all over. In a recent interview, director Sujith Vasudev revealed some interesting details.
According to Sujith, the character James was not written exclusively for Prithviraj. Several popular actors of the industry were considered for the role initially, as they were all perfect for the role.
But, it was with Prithviraj, to whom Sujith narrated the story for the first time. But it was during the filming of Mumbai Police, and the Sujith Vasudev was not ready for his directorial debut that time.
Later, the director felt that Prithviraj can play the role perfectly, as he can perfectly essay the different looks of James. The actor can look young and aged at the same time, which is one of his biggest plus points.
Then Sujith approached Prithviraj with the complete script and the actor was impressed with it. The director was very particular that the actor should appear in totally different get-ups in the movie.
Prithvi's young look in the movie was finalised, after a considering several other get-ups. Costume designer Arun and makeup artist Sreejith also stood by the director, in the long process.
