The actor-director is currently shooting for Bro Daddy in Hyderabad
Mollywood star Prithviraj, who is currently busy with the shoot of his second directorial Bro Dadddy, is expected to wrap up its portions and begin work on his other acting commitments soon.
He will first be joining Alphonse Puthren’s upcoming movie Gold, which has Nayanthara as the female lead. The movie is expected to be shot outside Kerala and is reportedly a comedy thriller in the same vein as the Premam director’s Neram. The film’s first schedule is expected to kick off by mid September. Ajmal Amir also plays a pivotal role in the film.
Right after Gold’s schedule, Prithviraj is expected to resume shooting for Shaji Kailas’ ‘mass’ action entertainer Kaduva in Idukki. The team will shoot in Mudakkayam for the film’s pending portions set in a house, and then take a call on whether to shift the location outside Kerala depending on the outdoor shoot restrictions imposed by the Kerala government.
Samyuktha Menon, Arjun Ashokan, Siddique and Dileesh Pothan will also be part of the upcoming schedule of the movie, which has Prithviraj playing the character of a planter named Kaduvakunnel Kuruvachan. The movie is scripted by Jinu Abraham and co-produced by Prithviraj Productions.
Meanwhile, the actor also has a slew of projects for which he had completed a few portions – these include Blessy’s Aadujeevitham and Dijo Jose Anthony’s Jana Gana Mana. Prithviraj has also completed shooting for Rathish Ambat’s Theerpu and Ravi K Chandran’s Bhramam. While Theerpu producer Vijay Babu had earlier told us that the movie will be a theatrical release, we hear that Bhramam, which is the Malayalam remake of Andhadhun, is heading for a direct-to-OTT release.
In Bro Daddy, which is scripted by Sreejith N and Bibin Malieckal, Prithviraj plays the son of Mohanlal’s character. The movie also has Kalyani Priyadarshan, Kaniha, Meena, Unni Mukundan, Lalu Alex and Mallika Sukumaran in pivotal roles.
