Not Afraid Of Youngsters – Prithviraj
Prithviraj who is Malayalam’s industry’s senior-most actor among the youth stars has stated that he isn’t bothered by the rise of new heroes in Mollywood. Known for his brutally honest attitude, Prithviraj maintains that he doesn’t feel threatened by the success of his younger colleagues.
Nivin Pauly and Dulquer Salmaan have led the charge of the young brigade in recent years churning out big hits at the box office.Many new actors and camps are being formed in the industry in recent times but Prithvi’s focus is clearly on the scripts he does – a quality he feels will separate him from the rest.
“Many actors come and go in your industry and all doesn’t stay along,” says Prithviraj.
“Some make a mark while the others fade away.
“There are more youngsters waiting to enter the industry and I am here waiting for them.
“I don’t believe in camps in the industry and feel that it’s the quality of work you do that makes filmmakers to approach you.”
Prithviraj has been the industry’s most consistent actor over the past three years as far as delivering quality movies are concerned. Barring ‘London Bridge’, all his other films that released during this phase has received laurels for their novelty in theme and execution.
This year too he has been in his elements with the highly appreciated ‘Picket 43’ followed by a classy emotional drama in ‘Ivide’. Prithvi also has an impressive line-up of films left for the year with Lijo Pelissary’s mega multi-starrer ‘Double Barrel’ and Nadir Shah’s ‘Amar Akbar Antony’ being the biggies alongside films like ‘Anarkali’ and ‘Ennum Ninte Moideen’.
