Ayya, the Bollywood film starring Rani Mukherjee, is produced by Anurag Kashyap and directed by acclaimed Marathi director Sachin Kundalkar. Opposite Rani Mukherjee’s Marathi girl character, we have the south Indian heartthrob (mainly seen in Malayalam movies) PrithviRaj, who is known for his handsome face and acting potential. He has already proved his mettle in Malayalam movies where he is about to complete 10 years in 2012.
Although he was widely appreciated for his heroic appeal and unmistakable talent, the actor had to face sever criticism and mockery post his recent hush-hush marriage to a Mumbai based Journalist. However, he’s got appreciated once again in the latest release ‘Indian Rupee‘. His bilingual Urumi also fetched him accolades this year. In other achievements, he was paired opposite Aishwarya Rai Bachchan in Mani Ratnam’s Raavanan (Tamil version of Raavan).
Prithvi (that’s his nickname down south) was offered his Ayya role since the character is of a Tamil painter.
With fan following in both Kerala and Tamil Nadu, this young and talented actor is all set to try his luck in Bollywood. We wish him all the very best!
