Prithviraj to play a cop in an upcoming investigative thriller
We had recently reported about Plan J Studios, the banner that co-produced ‘Thanneer Mathan Dinangal’, producing a film with Prithviraj Sukumaran as the lead. Cinematographer-turned-filmmaker Tanu Balak will be making his directorial debut with the film, which is an investigative thriller.
Prithviraj will be playing a police officer’s role in the film. The actor has previously essayed cop roles in films like ‘Vargam’, ‘Masters’ ‘Mumbai Police’, ‘Memories’ etc. His new film with Tanu Balak is said to be a proper suspense thriller. The project is still in the early stages.
The makers had recently released a casting call on looking for girls between the age group of 6-8 and both male and female actors between 25-60. Since it is specially mentioned that artists from Kanyakumari-Trivandrum region are preferred, it looks like the film is set in that particular milieu. A formal announcement with complete details regarding the cast and crew is expected to be made soon.
Prithviraj has several other projects coming up, which includes both small scale films and highly ambitious ones like ‘Kaaliyan’, ‘Vaariyamkunnan’, ‘Karachi 81’ and a multilingual film that is planned to be shot completely in virtual production. ‘Kaduva’ with Shaji Kailas and ‘Ayalvaashi’ with Irshad Parari’ are the star’s other committed projects.
