Director and actor Nadir Shah say that Prithviraj had told him to use his intellect in deciding which film to skip after Amar Akbar Anthony. His response was in an interview with Kairali TV.
“You deserve the success of this film. You have worked hard for this. I’m not saying whether the film will be a hit or not. But with this film, your direction will get a lot of attention. Your intellect is in what movies are not done. A lot of movies and producers will approach you. The wisdom lies in what you throw away. Prithviraj said to be careful about that;” Nadirsha Told Kirali TV.
Nadirsha went on to say that Prithviraj gave him a date without even asking anything about the film. “Later some people asked Raju how Nadirsha was. Raju has told me this onset. Raju had said that my film is the answer to that;” Nadirsha added.
Amar Akbar Antony was Nadirsha’s directorial debut. He was already successful as a singer and actor. The film, which starred Prithviraj, Jayasurya, and Indrajith, was appreciated by the audience. Amar Akbar Anthony is a 2015 Malayalam film directed by Nadirsha. Newcomers Bibin George and Vishnu Unnikrishnan have penned the script for the film. Nadirsha composed the music for the film.
His second film Kattappanayile Rithwik Roshan was a commercial success. It stars Vishnu Unnikrishnan, Prayaga Martin, Lijomol Jose and Dharmajan Bolgatty in the lead roles.
