Prithviraj starrer flick named Pavada is coming on to the silver screens of Kerala from the 15th of this month. The film is directed by G Marthanadan who had earlier directed Daivathinte Swantham Cleetus and Acha Dhin with Mammootty in the lead in both films. The film has been produced by popular actor Maniyanpillai Raju and this is his 10th production venture. Maniyan Pillai Raju has great hope on this one and he said in a media interview that Prithviraj had made them change the screenplay of the film 4 times before agreeing to do this film.
Maniyanpillai Raju said that he had to rewrite the screenplay with four different script writers to convince Prithvi Raj to do this film. Four times Prithvi Raj had rejected the screenplay saying that he is not satisfied with the script. Then Maniyan Pillai Raju made Bipin Chandran to write the script of this film and Prithviraj was impressed by that. Earlier when he was not satisfied with the scripts he said to Maniyan Pillai Raju that he can make this film with any other actor. But Maniyan Pillai Raju was adamant that he will only make this film with Prithvi Raj in the lead and he waited for long to make the script perfect and make Prithvi act in it.
Maniyan Pillai Raju said that the script is one which creates a happy mood and its making was superb as well. Among all the 10 films he had produced, this one may be the best one in terms of its budget and he also believes that this one may be the film which will get the maximum theater run as well among the films he produced till now.
He also said that Prithviraj had rejected the scripts at first because he wanted the film to be good. He said each time that the script is good but it is not the film that has to come from their association. Maniyan Pillai Raju believes that this will be a film which will bring out another aspect of Prithvi Raj as an actor and all the actors in it had given one of their best performance till date as well.
