Actor Prithviraj Sukumaran made his Indian cinema debut just over a decade ago for the Malayalam film "Nandanam", made his Tamil debut a few years later in the 2005 film "Kana Kandaen". He has since starred in a number of South Indian films, including Mani Ratnam’s "Raavanan" in 2010.
The actor made his foray into Bollywood last year with the film "Aiyaa" opposite Rani Mukherji, and is currently working on "Aurangzeb", which is being produced and distributed by Yash Raj Films – one of the largest Indian entertainment and production houses.
Rumour has it that Prithviraj has been roped in for "Happy New Year", a film by choreographer-turned-director Farah Khan. Bollywood stars Shah Rukh Khan and Abhishek Bachchan have been confirmed as being part of the film, but Prithviraj’s role is yet to be officially confirmed. Speaking to The Hindu last week, the actor revealed that he had been involved in preliminary talks with the film’s team, but has not yet confirmed anything.
It would certainly be a good look for the actor to be in a film alongside two of Bollywood’s biggest stars, especially as "Aiyaa" didn’t do that well at the box office. Keep it locked on Thamarai.com for further updates!
