Prithviraj and Nayanthara's first film together is Gold, directed by Alphonse Putren. The post-production work on the film is currently underway. Before Gold, there were talks of a film with Prithviraj and Nayanthara as the leads. But that movie didn't happen. Director Sibi Malayil's words about the movie Amritham are now getting attention. Nayanthara was cast in Amritham for an imagined role. Padmapriya was cast as Jayaram's pair.
“Nayanthara was paired with the second character. Prithviraj was originally planned as Jayaram's younger brother. Nayanthara was supposed to act as Prithviraj's pair. Nayanthara has come and gone for the powwow of the film,” says Sibi Malayil.
But the director says that Nayanthara withdrew from the film when she got an opportunity in another film. Prithviraj withdrew from the film due to the problem of remuneration. The actor was dropped because the producers could not pay the remuneration demanded by Prithviraj.
But the director said that the actor thinks that he is the one who left Prithviraj out, and that is why he is angry with him. Actor Arun played the role of Jayaram's brother in the 2004 film Amritham. Bhavana replaced Nayanthara in the film.
