Prithviraj wants to team up with Big B
"This is a very special film for me because this story, the plot of the film, was thought of nine years ago. It's a film that I have travelled around with. I took this film to a friend of mine to direct. (Now) I would like to remake this film in Hindi with Mr.Bachchan. Let's see how things fall in place," Prithviraj told us.
'Ayalum Njanum Thammil', directed by Lal Jose, hit the screens on October 19. It features Narain, Rima Kallingal, Samvrutha Sunil and Remya Nambeesan, apart from Prithviraj.
Asked if he has already approached Big B for the remake, he said: "No, I haven't approached him yet. I would like Mr. Bachchan to see this film, but I am assuming he will like the film at least. It's just a dream."
"The response has been fantastic for this film and unfortunately this is the first time I am not in Kerala, during the release," added the 30-year-old.
Prithviraj made his Bollywood debut opposite Rani Mukherjee in the recently released 'Aiyyaa', which has garnered a mixed response. But he is happy.
"Some have liked the film, some have not liked the film. But personally, I feel the film has created a lot of buzz for me. I didn't expect people to suddenly take interest in me, so I am getting lot of calls and people want me to hear lot of scripts.
"As a debutant (in Bollywood), I couldn't have asked for anything more. If you want to get noticed and that is the endeavour, then yes 'Aiyyaa' has worked for me somewhere," he said.
