Why Prithviraj says 'no' to Mohanlal?
One of the most promising stars of this age, Prithviraj has declined many opportunites to act with none other than the superstar Mohanlal. Anyone would frown their brows when they come across this shocking news, so to say. But our hero Prithviraj is the least perturbed. When enquired about this decision during an interview, the actor has a different version of the story altogether.
“This is not right. It has been my dream to act with Lalettan. But just for the sake of that wish, if I make way for a bad movie, then would it not be selfishness on my part. Won't it be cheating the media which has been life bread for so long? That's the sole reason why I did not commit to these movies.
Movies which were planned with Lalettan and me were either weak in the story side or in certain cases my character was poorly etched. Why should I be a part of such movies? If I come across a good story and a role which would help to develop the actor in me, then I would certainly do the movie. As I said earlier, it has been my long standing aspiration.”
Even when Prithvi makes his stand clear, it remains to be seen whether these are genuine reasons or whether the politics within the industry and among the superstars has found its way among the new generation as well.
