Prithviraj on Monday announced his new project, which has been titled The Railway Guard. The film will be directed by ace filmmaker Deepu Karunakaran. It will be the actor-director duo’s second collaboration after the 2011 romantic comedy Teja Bhai & Family.
The makers also shared a note briefly describing the core plot of the film. Going by the description, the movie is likely to be dark and gritty. “The barren terrains of north and northeastern India. Thousands of kilometres of one of the world’s largest railroad network traverse through these often hostile terrains. There, at the end of a goods train that carry anything from coal to grains, he keeps watch alone. The scorching heat, the freezing cold, the darkest nights and the beat of the locomotive keep him company. This is the seldom told story of a barely known hero. This is the story of… THE RAILWAY GUARD (sic),” reads the statement.
There is no further confirmation on when the project will go on floors or its final cast and crew. The filmmakers are expected to share the details soon.
