Mammootty, Prithviraj in <i>Pokkiri Raja</i>

Just days after the announcement of Ennu Ninte Moideen director R S Vimal’s magnum opus titled Karnan, with Prithviraj in the lead, there seems to be a fresh project to be launched with the same theme! And the new one has none other than Mammootty as the hero.

According to certain reports actor P Sreekumar, who has directed Mammootty’s Vishnu some years back, has been working on a script on the tragic hero from Mahabharatha for the past few years. He was about to announce the project, with Madhupal as the director and Mammootty as the hero, when Vimal announced Karnan with Prithviraj in the lead.

Sreekumar has told a prominent Malayalam website that Prithviraj was aware about his project and he is going ahead with his film.

So who will eventually play ‘Karnan’? Mammootty or Prithviraj? As they say, some stories are more intriguing off the screen than on it.
