Ranjith’s Indian Rupee has wowed audiences and critics alike, and two actors have been offered a fresh lease of life, thanks to the film – Thilakan and Prithviraj. Thilakan has remained away from the industry for the last few months after being banned by AMMA, while Prithvi has been the object of many an attack in recent times.
Thilakan has come out in defence of Prithviraj the actor, and says that there is no reason for the young actor to be treated this way. In an interview with a prominent daily Thilakan says that he had watched the film at Trivandrum Sree Padmanabha theatre.
“During Prithvi’s introduction scene, there was a whole lot of howling the theatre. Not everyone was howling, but it was obvious, that there was an attempt to deliberately attack Prithvi, the reason of which I don’t understand,” says the veteran actor.
“I don’t think Prithvi’s performance in the film demanded all that ruckus. ‘Indian Rupee’ is one of Prithvi’s best films. And in this film, Prithviraj has evolved much as an actor. A film has to be carefully watched. It’s not right to howl in the midst of a film,” adds Thilakan.
