Prithviraj in 'Son of Alexander'?
The makers of 'Son of Alexander', which is the sequel of 1990 Mammootty starrer 'Samrajyam', reportedly zeroed in on Prithviraj, after considering Arya, Asif Ali and Dulquar Salman to play the lead role in the Malayalam film.
"Initially, they wanted Arya to play the lead, but he doesn't have the star value to carry off such a film in the Malayalam film industry. Prithviraj was the next obvious choice for the film," says the source.
Directed by Perarasu, 'Son of Alexander' also stars Prakash Raj, Arjun, Biju Menon, Manoj K Jayan and Suraj.
The movie is also being billed as "the costliest Malayalam film till date."
