"I suspect Prithviraj's detractors have recruited people just to churn out such SMSes and videos," Tiny lashes out in support of Prithviraj. "No Malayali youngster has achieved the fame and name he has in such a short span of time. Prithvi started his Mollywood innings when he was just 19 and he has been consistently giving a good performance. Acting is in his blood; and films are his passion," says Tini.
No matter what people say or think about him, he is scaling new heights. Tini opines, "After playing a pivotal part in Mani Ratnam's Raavanan, he is now all set to make his Bollywood entry opposite Rani Mukherjee. And there's no stopping him."
But success hasn't got on to Prithvi's head, Tini claims. "He is so polite to his co-stars! Never once have I seen him throwing his weight around."
Tini also notes what it is about Prithvi that doesn't go down well with many. "Well, he is not afraid to speak his mind. Plus, he has answered every question thrown to him by every journalist. That has landed him in serious trouble many a time. He is now changing for the better."
Tini will team up with Prithviraj again in director Diphan's upcoming flick, Heroes.

Someones out to malign Prithviraj: Tini Tom
People with talent don't force modesty upon them that's actor Tini Tom's theory about his Indian Rupee co-star Prithviraj, who is the butt of jokes in a series of SMSes and Youtube videos. The chain of SMSes centred on Prithvi has him mouthing silly jokes and funny ideas while the videos posted on Youtube take a dig at excerpts from his interviews.
