Why then Pranav? “It was not because Pranav was Mohanlal’s son that he is starring in my new film. When I thought about who should be the lead role for the movie, I instantly thought about Pranav. So I don’t feel it’s a very overwhelming challenging task to cast Pranav as the hero.” says Jeethu Joseph the director of Drishyam. So when Jeethu Joseph narrated the story of the much awaited suspense thriller to Pranav liked it and accepted the task at hand.
Jeethu also said that when doing a film, my job is to communicate the character or protagonist of the film to the audience as much as possible. So it doesn’t feel much difficult for me. The film will be an action thriller, only the story has been finalized now. The screenplay and other developments have not been made yet. Pranav has worked with me on a film before, and I know about his capabilities as an actor. So I am sure that he will definitely be of satisfaction for the role in mind.
