On October 16, Malayalam actor and filmmaker Prithviraj Sukumaran turns 41. On the occasion of his birthday, the makers of the upcoming Christmas release Salaar: Part 1 – Ceasefire released the first look of the actor in his character as Varadharaja Mannar, the king.
Production banner Hombale Films released a post on their social media, taking the opportunity to wish their lead actor. Their post on Instagram reads: “Wishing Varadharaja Mannar, The King @therealprithvi, a majestic birthday.
Sporting a rugged avatar in a dusty t-shirt, the actor accessorizing his look with a septum nosepin, is what makes the look a lot more exciting. Exuding charm and charisma in equal measure, the actor’s look is further accentuated by a long-drawn black tilak on his forehead and a rudraksh necklace hanging around his neck.
While further details about Prithvi’s character have been kept under wraps, it is being said that the actor will don a grey-shaded character. Infact, the actor too has remained tight-lipped when asked about what his character does in the film. He has gone on record however, to state, “If I tell you that now it would take away all the fun. But, it’s not like Prabhas is the hero and I am the villain.”
As soon as the actor shared his first look on Instagram, wife Supriya Menon commented with a heart followed by fire emojis.
Directed by Prashanth Neel of KGF fame, Salaar: Part 1 – Ceasefire is gearing up for release on December 22, 2023. The film also stars Prabhas, Shruti Haasan and Jagapathi Babu in key roles.
