Prithviraj and wife Supriya’s debut venture from their production house, Prithviraj Productions, went on the floors on April 9 and is reported to be progressing well. Though not much is known about the storyline or the genre of the film, which is titled Nine, sources in the know say that it is a horror and sci-fi film that has its lead star playing a scientist. However, those associated with the project are tight-lipped about it.
Prithviraj recently tweeted to let fans know that the Nine team had wrapped up the Kerala schedule and was heading to the foothills of the Himalayas: “And that’s a schedule wrap for #9 in Kerala. Headed for the foothills of the mighty Himalayas now! @PrithvirajProd @SonyPictures @9MovieOfficial.”
The film, which will also mark the entry of Sony Pictures into the Malayalam film industry, has Prithviraj playing the lead role while the rest of the star cast is yet to be revealed.
Written and directed by Jenuse Mohamed, Nine is bankrolled by Supriya Menon and SPE Films jointly. With the film’s production underway, it is expected that it will hit the silver screens later this year. As for Nine’s technical crew, Shaan Rahman has been roped in to compose the soundtrack while the BGM will be done by Sekhar Menon.
