Prithviraj’s sports drama Beautiful Game is happening!!
Two years back, in February 2016, Prithviraj had announced that he would be starring in a sports drama titled ‘Beautiful Game’. The actor had even posted the title poster of the movie in his official Facebook page. The movie was to be directed by ace photographer and ad filmmaker Jamesh Kottakkal and was supposed to produced by actor Asif Ali.
However, the project got shelved after Asif Ali backed out. Though there were reports about budget constraints being the issue, the exact reason for him opting out is not yet known. Prithviraj soon got busy as he moved on to other projects.
But now, a good fans for all the football lovers in the state is that the project is indeed happening. Photos taken by the director and scriptwriter during the recent discussions with Prithviraj are doing the rounds in social medias. The actor is expected to make an official announcement very soon.
Earlier in an interview, director James Kottakal had stated that they will be presenting the inside story of the people who are involved in football, both emotionally and physically. During that time, the makers had even conducted audition rounds for selecting the best football players of the state. Debutant Ajaykumar is scripting Beautiful Game. Composer Bijibal and lyricist Rafeeq Ahamed are also part of the team. Let’s hope the project materializes this time so that the industry and its audience get to witness its first ever proper sports film!
