Malayalam superstar Prithviraj Sukumaran is now all set to direct and act in an upcoming Hindi web series based on the life of India’s ‘Biscuit King’ Rajan Pillai.
Talking about this, Prithviraj said, “The existence of light and darkness in human lives has always engaged me as an actor and director and this story has it all: ambition, success, a jet setting lifestyle and then a hubris induced fall that took a man from the zenith of corporate power to the depravity of a prison cell. All this at the age of 47. Even though he passed away in 1995, his story serves as a relevant example of how the effects of success and power blur the line of morality, to this generation. It will be very interesting to discover what made this charismatic personality tick and to relive his intriguing, complex life.”
The series will be produced by Yoodles film and it will mark the debut of Prithviraj into Bollywood as well as the OTT platform.
