Prithviraj’s ‘9’ movie is a Sci-Fi Horror Thriller!
Prithviraj’s next movie directed by 100 Days of Love filmmaker Jenuse Mohamed, has been titled 9. And Prithviraj has announced this movie as his first production venture and also it will be produced along with Sony Pictures International Productions.
Two years ago, in an interview Jenuse had told that he was working on a movie with Prithviraj in the lead, and one that also has two more heroines. On the genre of the movie, he had said, “This is mostly a science fiction. It’s a new kind of film in Malayalam. It’s also a horror-thriller.” Both Nitya Menen and Parvathy were discussions for the parts of the female protagonists. Rumours are rife that the current film will have Prithviraj playing a scientist. However, the director, had said, “I am not at liberty to reveal any detail at this point of time.”
It is also reported that the movie will go on floors soon in Thiruvananthapuram and will also have a schedule in Himachal Pradesh. Prithviraj, meanwhile, in his social media post has mentioned, “From the creative heads at Sony, to Supriya, me and every single crew member you see in the credits, came on board for how new we thought the film and it’s premise was. Soon, we will also introduce you to the cast..and why we think this is a genuine first of its kind for Malayalam cinema (sic).”
It was only recently Prithviraj and his wife Supriya, have rolled out a new film production company. Named after the actor himself, Prithviraj Productions wants to “give back to cinema,” a statement read.
According to a statement released by Prithviraj through his official social media accounts, Prithviraj said that the duo was realising a dream, by launching the 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,” the statement read. Till 2017, Prithviraj was part of a production house called August Cinema, along with Shaji Nadesan, Santosh Sivan and actor Arya.
