The initial time to gain success

Various artists have spent much time to make their debut in acting and been strenuous in pursuing the career. But this seemed to be not such a hurdle for Prithviraj that he was cast by director Fazil in 2001. One year later, Fazil also recommended Prithviraj to another director named Ranjith for Nandanam as Prithviraj’s debut movie.

Highs and lows in his career

Boundlessly talented but Prithviraj’s debut movie was considered as a disaster of the box office. Later, his other movies were also not warmly welcomed by the audience even in terms of critical reception. Nevertheless, his first film Kana Kandaen and Parijatham in the Tamil language have made a hit.
