Mumbai, (IANS) Southern superstar Prithviraj, who makes his Bollywood debut with Anurag Kashyap’s “Aiyyaa”, is keen to work with the big names of Hindi cinema.
“I want to work with all the Bollywood biggies. In that sense I am selfish as an actor,” he told IANS in an interview.
The actor is a popular name down South and has successful films like “Stop Violence”, “Thirakkatha”, “Mozhi” and “Chocolate” to his credit.
However, it seems his Hindi film career is already on roll, even before the release of “Aiyyaa”. He is currently busy shooting for Yash Raj Films’ “Aurangzeb” and is in talks for his third film.
“I just got back from Delhi after shooting a few scenes for the film (“Aurangzeb”). We shot a couple of scenes in Mumbai and the rest will be in Delhi,” he said.
Prithviraj says this is a special film for him as he had got it on the basis of his talent and not because who he is.
“It’s a big privilege for me to be part of Yash Raj Films. Personally it is a great feeling, because in my entire career, ‘Aurangzeb’ is a film, which I auditioned for. I got ‘Aurangzeb’ not because of who I am or what I have done, but because of that audition,” he said.
As far as his third Hindi film is concerned, Prithviraj refuses to divulge any details.
“I am in talks for the third film, but nothing has been confirmed yet. Once I give the go ahead, we will make the official announcement,” he said.
“Aiyyaa” is directed by Sachin Kundalkar and stars Rani Mukerji and Prithviraj in the lead. It releases Oct 12.
