“It was then that Vivek said that he would be more than willing to join hands with me for their foray into Malayalam if I did indeed have such a script at hand. I did! A few days before that, I had already zeroed in on a script that I knew should make the film that would launch Prithrviraj Productions. We went to Mumbai, and gave them an elaborate narration and a project overview. By the end of the day, a handshake over a coffee had become a partnership between two companies,” Prithviraj added further.
“What makes this partnership doubly exciting is the nature of the film that we’re producing together. Supriya and I proudly welcome them to the content driven talent pool, that is the Malayalam film industry,” he added further. With such big renowned production house entering Malayalam cinema, expectations on the prosperity of the industry will be high.
