The 36-year-old actor Prithviraj Sukumaran is making his production debut with sci-fi horror thriller Nine. Through his banner Prithviraj Production, he wishes to provide a platform to "good and unusual" content. Nine is slated to release on February 7.
Blessy's Aadujeevitham, based on the similarly-titled award-winning Malayalam novel written by Benyamin, is the story of a man ending up in shambles after reaching the Middle East as he finds himself tending goats in extreme desert temperatures.
Mohanlal, who currently has multiple projects in hand, has given his consent to go ahead with the shooting of Lucifer, which marks Prithviraj's first directorial venture. The filmmakers are yet to decide on the remaining cast and crew.
In July last year, Prithviraj announced his decision to walk out of the production company August Cinema Pvt Ltd, which he jointly launched with Shaji and Santosh. Ending the six-year-long association, he had said it was time for him to do things on his own.
Apart from Prithviraj Sukumaran, Ranam- Detroit Crossing also stars Rahman and Isha Talwar and a bunch of foreign actors in important roles. The film is expected to reach the screens in March this year.
