In director Jayan Nambiar’s Vilayath Buddha, actor Prithviraj will play a smuggler. Vilayath Buddha is based on a novel by writer G R Indugopan.
Sachy, the writer and director of Ayyappanum Koshiyum, was planning to direct the movie with Prithviraj in the lead. However Sachy passed away in June this year and Jayan Nambiar, who was working as an associate director to Sachy, decided to direct the movie.
The shooting of Vilayath Buddha is expected to start after the COVID 19 restrictions are over. Prithviraj was shooting in Jordan for Blessy’s Aadujeevitham when the COVID 19 pandemic outbreak happened.
