South Indian stars off to Bollywood

It couldn’t have been a better calling for actor Prithviraj. The newly-wed Malayalam actor has lady luck shining on him and how. Barely two days after his wedding, Bollywood director Anurag Kashyap confirmed Prithviraj’s much speculated debut in Bollywood — believe it or not — with Rani Mukerji as his co-star.

Anurag, who himself has been busy since he’s tying the knot this weekend, told us, “This untitled production will be directed by Sachin Kundalkar. Prithviraj will indeed be making his debut with this film. Rani Mukerji will co-star alongside him.” Sachin has so far directed some award-winning short films.

Anurag, who is currently working on his next film, Gangs Of Wasseypur, says, “This film is scheduled to take off sometime in September. We’re waiting for Prithviraj to finish the Malayalam films that he’s given nod to before us before we start off.”

Prithviraj, whose Bollywood debut has been on the cards for a while, had initially denied reports of him starring in this film.

“Prithviraj did not want to confirm until everything was finalised. He is a little superstitious that way, where he doesn’t talk about his newer projects until they go on floors,” says a source close to him.

It is also learnt that Mukerjeeshould mostly be done with her commitments towards Reema Kagti’s Zakhmi alongside Aamir Khan and Kareena Kapoor by September. Let’s wait and see how this new pair sizzles on screen.
