Prithviraj made his acting debut in the 2002 film Nandanam directed by Ranjith. The actor was 19 years old when he acted in the film. Director Fazil was the first to interview Prithviraj for a film. But that movie did not go through. Ranjith came to know about Prithviraj from Fazil and later called him to Kozhikode. Prithviraj, who made his acting debut in ‘Nandanam’, was followed by a procession of films.
Now Prithviraj is sharing his memories of becoming a superstar from that 19-year-old. The actor has renewed his memories by sharing his picture of Nandanam. “This is a photo taken on the day of Nandanam Pooja. I had no idea what life was going to be like in the years to come. All that was known was that I got something to use effectively during the summer vacation before returning to college.
But then I never went to college. It completely overwhelmed me. Well .. it includes everything I have now. Sometimes you just have to be more discriminating with the help you render toward other people. That is what Prithvi wrote.
Prithviraj, who has acted in over 100 films in 17 years, also bagged the state award for best actor. Prithviraj, who made his directorial debut with ‘Lucifer’, also rewrote the box office collections of Malayalam cinema. ‘Lucifer’ is the first Malayalam film to collect Rs 200 crore.
