Prithviraj's Bollywood dreams
Malayalam star Prithviraj, who is all set to make his Bollywood debut opposite Rani Mukherjee in Aiyaa, seems to have added another high-profile one to his kitty.
His next Hindi film will be Aurangzeb, a Yashraj production directed by Atul Sabharwal, which has Ishaqzaade hero Arjun Kapoor in the lead. Prithviraj is excited by the offer which reportedly has come via his Aiyaa co-star.
With his latest release in Malayalam, Hero, getting a mixed response, Prithviraj has reason to be worried about his stature on home turf.
He does a "brief but important role" in Amal Neerad's soon-to-be-released Bachelor Party.
He has completed Shaji Kailas' Simhasanam and will start shooting for Lal Jose's next, scripted by Bobby-Sanjay.
Rajesh Pillai to direct Mohanlal in Lucifer
Director Rajesh Pillai, whose film Traffic started the trend of big stars taking a back seat and the film's content being the focus, will team up with superstar Mohanlal for his next.
The film has been titled Lucifer and is being scripted by Muraly Gopi, who wrote the critically acclaimed Ee Adutha Kaalathu.
Lucifer is being produced by Antony Perumbavoor's banner Ashirwad Films and is expected to start rolling some time next year.
Rajesh is currently working on the Hindi version of Traffic and has also announced Gold, to be scripted by Sankar Ramakrishnan.
