Prithviraj had come back to winning ways after a series of debacles he faced just after the success of Sapthamasree Thaskaraha that released on last year Onam season. Then, he had faced almost 5 failures at box office and the biggest of them all was Double Barrel directed by Lijo Jose Pellissery. It was big because it was a multi-starrer film which made using great time and money.
It is considered as one of the biggest budget films made in Mollywood and Prithviraj had other reasons also to feel let down by the failure of the film and it was that he was the financer of the movie as well. August Cinemas, of which he is also an owner and partner along with Santhosh Sivan, Shaji Nadeshan and Arya financed the film. But Prithviraj says that he had no regret in the failure of the film at box office and also not feeling that he had made a wrong decision to finance the film.
Prithviraj says that Double barrel was an experimental film and they all know that fact right from the beginning of the project. That is why he took up the production of the film as he did not want any other producer to feel the burden and difficulty of financing such a big budget experimental film and to be affected by the loss if it not worked according to their plans. He says that the financial loss he had to suffer was not making him regret the decision to finance it as he had taken that decision with great clarity of thought.
Prithviraj says that he believes that an actor’s role not ends in just performing as the character. So, he try to involve in all matters regarding his films and because of that he is also responsible for the success and failure of the films he acts. He never wants to hide away from that responsibility as well. In fact, he is enjoying that responsibility as an artist and a person working in the film field.
