Prithviraj Sukumaran is unarguably one of the bravest actors of contemporary Malayalam cinema. The multi-faceted talent has always amazed the audiences with his brilliant film choices and exceptional performances. Prithviraj is currently on a high with two back to back blockbusters, the 2019-released Driving License and recent hit Ayyappanum Koshiyum, in his kitty.
According to the latest reports from the trade experts, Driving License, which featured Prithviraj Sukumaran and Suraj Venjaramoodu in the lead roles, has done a lifetime business of around Rs. 44 Crores. It is definitely a great success for the Lal Jr. directorial, which marked the Aadujeevitham actor's third outing as a producer.
Ayyappanum Koshiyum, the Sachy directorial that featured Prithviraj and Biju Menon in the title roles, has emerged as an even bigger success by making a total business of around Rs. 55 Crores so far. Even though the theatres in Kerala are closed due to the coronavirus scare, the action thriller is still running successfully at the theatres outside Kerala.
The great successes of Driving License and Ayyappanum Koshiyum have put Prithviraj Sukumaran right back on the track and have definitely raised the market value of the multi-faceted talent. The actor has been widely appreciated by the audiences and critics for his choice of characters that shows his immense growth as an actor, in the recent past.
Prithviraj is currently busy with the shooting of his ambitious project Aadujeevitham, which is directed by Blessy. The actor has reportedly shed around 30 kilos to portray the role of abused migrant worker Najeeb Mohammed in the movie. The highly anticipated project is expected to hit the theatres by the end of 2020.
Apart from Aadujeevitham, Prithviraj Sukumaran has some promising projects lining up including Ayalvaashi, Kaduva, Kaaliyan, etc. The actor is also planning to don the director's hat once again for the upcoming sequel of his directorial debut Lucifer, which has been titled as Empuraan.
