Prithviraj and Supriya launch their new production company
We have recently reported that, young actor Prithviraj Sukumaran is planning to start a new production company. Today, the actor has confirmed this big news and announced its name officially through his official Facebook page. His post reads, “Over the past one year Supriya and I have been putting our efforts into realising a dream. And now it’s finally time to share it with you. A new film production company!
We have always wanted to give back to cinema… and we couldn’t possibly think of a better way to do that than facilitate films which we believe will make Malayalam cinema proud.
Why did it take one year? Why do we believe this could be the start of something very special for our industry? Why is this dream of ours effectively taking a step closer to the vision that I have always harboured for Malayalam cinema? These are all questions to which hopefully you’ll find answers in the next few announcements that will follow.
For now, I’d like to thank all of you who’ve given me what I have, not to forget Shaji Nadesan and Santosh Sivan who held my hand when I took baby steps into the world of film production, and a heartfelt thank you to each and everyone who taught me all that I know of cinema.
Today, Supriya and I proudly present, PRITHVIRAJ PRODUCTIONS.”
Reportedly, Nine directed by Jenuse Mohamed of 100 days of love fame, will be the first movie funded by Prithviraj Productions. Prithviraj will play the lead role of a scientist in this science-fiction horror thriller and it will start rolling in Thiruvananthapuram by next month.
