  1. Saw this intervierw, prithvi proved once again that he is arrogant, doesnt have anything to do with his fans, a bore, a big lier, and does not appreciate his seniors talent. And also has a bad taste ( supriya)

  2. saala, avanu enthum cheyyam. i dont like him now he is deliberately making issues, always commenting against lalettan and mammookka,, avanu enthum cheyyam, he is complaining about their roles selection, hair transplant enna our sambhavam illathirunnel avan ippol field out aayene,,, 2 years munpu oru front line hair transplant cheythathu kondu avan rakshapettu..athu avan hide cheythittu avanu mammookka oru 30 kaarante rolilu act chetythaal aanu kuzhappam…

  3. Somehow I liked this guy before this interview….But now I hate this guy…What a real stupid he is…Don’t even dream that u can withstand for 50 years in cinema…I hate this guy..

  4. Somehow I liked this guy before this interview….But now I hate this guy…What a real stupid he is…Don’t even dream that u can withstand for 10 years in cinema…I hate this guy..

  5. If you ask a body language expert for their opinion on this interview and the connection between this couple, it will be astounding….

  6. mammokka 3 national awards for best actor, laalettan 2, 1 national award ithuvare kandittillatha, oru nalla movie polum cheythittillatha ivan aara megastars na parayan

  7. Over confidence nallathinalla.Oru nalla role polum innu vare cheythittillaatha prithvirajinu naanamille.mammmootty,mohanlal compaire cheyyaannulla yogyathayundo?

  8. I used to appreciate Prithviraj as a star (still a little hesitant to call him a great actor) and as a person before seeing this interview. I completely agree with his take on marrying a person of his choice and in his way. Who cares if the media was invited or not invited? It is absolutely a personal choice…Now, coming to the point-the interview and the views expressed by the ‘proud’ couple- both husband and wife can be smmarised in just one word-immatuure.My jaw dropped when the lady said that it was her search for a South Indian hero who spoke english that led to her speaking to her now husband-Prithviraj for the first time. I respect the malayalam artists for their intellect-the depth of their reading and thoughts and the way they articulate it irrespective of the language-be it Mammootty or Mohanlal or jagathy Sreekumar.I don’t assign any value to the super mega (or any other adjective popular media wishes to add here)stardom-but most of the South Indian Stars are also known for their maturity and simplicity and guess what Mr &Mrs Prithviraj, for lack of arrogance. I agree with Prithviraj that people should play their age and choose their roles well but look at how wisely an actor (not star!) like Mammootty is choosing his roles at this juncture of his career. Prithviraj needs to grow up a lot and so does his wife. I just hope that they do grow up in a few years.After all there is n’t a substitute to work and life experiences.And lastly-John Brittas has proven his incompetence once gain with his (ever so foolish and arrogant-yeah common traits emerging from both sides in the interview:-))omniscient and omnipotent demeanour.

  9. Saw te much talked about interview and laughed my vits out at the guys ignorance!!!!..really gt a memory flash on ‘Stupidity is the lover of ignorance’..and a piece of info to Supriya Menon irrespective of the context you were talking abt “Prithviraj is nt the only guy in south indian film industry who can speak English and plus his english is very rough and unrefined..Have you heard tamil actor Kamal Hassan speak, Mamooty speak??…guess nt!!! So before u throw words out of your mouth do think!!!…and the same applies to the upcoming (u can never jump in the range as mohanlal and mamooty has)..so when u do have time try googling out the meaning of the word MODESTY, u need tat to get big in ur field of work…but i guess its too late for u…and why is tat malayalam industry is nurturing such snobs???…when there are talented talented actors coming up these days!!…tis guy cant even crack a proper joke in the movies, his acting in no way is out of the boxfrom mohanlal or maooty and in such a case why shud mohanlal or mamooty call him personally and appreciate his work???…what is it that tis guy has done soooooooooo much to keep on specualting abt himself???…doesnt te guy have a conscience???..

    Totally agree with the fact that Mohanlal and Mamooty did make some crappy choices with films lately…but mamooty has come out of that comfort zone and is doing Beautiful movies within his limits…Prithviraj speaks as tho he is the ultimate “Happening man” in malayalam industry!!..”w–h–oooo wh—aaaaaat”…
    People should really show him that without the common man….he is nothing!!!…he can just sit at home with his “intellectuality”…people have to say tat u r intellectual….u cant claim it all!!…

  11. I always felt this guy has got some talent. In his earlier interviews, he always reminded me like at last we got an actor who is both knowledgeable and talented. At that time, he told he hate to being called as a superstar and told stardom must end and script should be the real star. I really admired his attitude then. But just after puthiyamukham, an interviewer asked him, you are now called as the next superstar. how you feel about this?.. his reply was, I am very happy to hear that.. What a hippocracy.. Then, in a recent interview he says only bad movies are becoming hits in kerala including some of his own and he is regetting the fact that he acted in those movies (but will never stop acting in them). The reason for he acted in those movies was just because he approached from viewer’s perspective and felt they were all good enough to be enjoyed by viewers. Then, why he is so worried about quality of all the hit films. They were all went on to become hits because the viewers were enjoying, isn’t it. So why hippocracy?. I think he should stop being a blusterer and focus more on his acting. Give us good films and perfomances, then people will give more respect to your words, even they will support you against our aging superstars.

  15. i had seen urumi
    The film is good i agree wid that . But what prithviraj did in that movie? Do he have any facial expression?
    Even tamil star prabhu deva done his role smoothly,Jagathy acted unbeleivably. Everything was gud in that movie
    Only problem in that movi was prithvi raj .
    How he became a hero in a movie?
    How dare he compared himself to superstars like mammooty and mohanlal?
    Prithviraj is not half of mammooty and mohanlal in acting.he was saying everybody shud do the role according to their age. I totaly disagree with prithvi. Acting is a profession and age is not a criteria. Amirkhan was almost 46 when he acted as a college student at 3idiots, in 2010 mammooty acted in best actor as a stylish rowdy,wat abt Rajni kanth who is 61 acted in enthiran.
    Rajni kanth had crores and crores of fans yet he is not arogant
    Prithviraj have not more than 50000 fans talks like he hve all world as his fans
    I am not saying i dont like that guy.
    He has to accept the truth that he is not a gud actor
    And he have to acept others talents

    Tell prithviraj to see their movies and study what is acting

  17. Prithvi may not get a chance to read what is written here, and going by the image he’s created well for himself, I wouldn’t think he’d care. Nevertheless, this is to bring to light to the coupld I saw on this interview on asianet that ‘ignorance is bliss’ is what you guys personify.
    Malayalees extend beyond the world of a Mumbai BBC correspondent and a great actor that you may think yourself to be; to each his own. You are both self made people and I dont want to take away any of what you’ve achieved in your own fields of work, but when you come across to an audience as wide as this and when you have a reputation to live upto, you just have no choice – but to live upto it. Supriya will take a while before she can comfortably face a malayalam interview, and let us give her the benefit of the doubt; but in the first of what I saw of a journalist on the other side of the camera, she tried a tad beyond herself in trying to prove a point, we as audience expected to see a “smart” and can hold her own version of Prithvi’s better half, it was disappointing, yes.
    Prithvi, I always liked you – mind it , I dont yet categorize you in the league of talented or gifted actors; but you’ve survived – thank your looks, your lack of stiff competition and your best assets – vulnerability and smartness. You say you are not insecure, I concur. Why then do you think its necessary to let the likes of Mohanlals or Mammootys know what you feel whenever the media wants to get a scoop off of you. They are where they are because they’ve done their jobs in the past, entertained the malayalee public for over 3 or 4 decades, without having the luxuries of today. Times change, they may no more be as modest but they’ve done their due and now they are just enjoying their retirement benefits and they could still hold their own and vie for attention from guys half their age – thats incredible, dont you think! Thats the story everywhere – be it Amitabh Bachhan or Rajnikant or KamalaHassan! They all have a USP and they needn’t be apologetic about it.
    All said, most of us watching you may be a little smarter than what you may think we are; So yes, we dont listen to those interviews expecting to connect with you or to know how you fell in love or dated; its because you are a celebrated personality and we want to get entertained. There are different people we listen to for different reasons, from Dhoni we hear what his clear and conscience mind speaks, from Obama we’d like to hear of what he thinks the world is leading to in that impeccable diction and relentless flow of oration, from Prithvi we want to hear slices of outspokenness interspersed with defence and sudden fits of anger like a little child. You are still a league of your own and that will get you a long way, I wish and hope that for you. But cant just turn a blind eye when I see a guy of your caliber contradicting himself over and over again in a span of one hour of public interview, and still think he’s doing it all right. Wish you good luck!

    • Absolutely right somya .He lacks versatility forget Mammothy and mohanlal he is not even a match to new generation actors like jayasurya ,anoop menon and Asif ali, He has miles to go but i don’t think audience will tolerate him beyond this point.
      The basic general knowledge of a BBC Correspondent was astonishing but it makes me wonder haven’t she seen any other celebrities in her life , The interview can be summarised in one word cheap and uncultured.

  20. Mr.Raj

    Please show your wife the filims of Kamal Hassan,Surya,Prbhu,Manmooty & Mohanlal.If possible make her call them and let her talk to them in English and she will for sure Understand where they are and where you are.By the way Kamal Hassan is not educated as you,neither he has gone abroad to study coz he didnt get admission in India as it deserves real talent to get admission in good colleges.

  22. i have seen many jelous persons but pritvyrajappan is the most jelous one i i had ever seen. If he dont know how to act why cant directors give him 2 buffalloes ? He can plough in the field. And he had a good wife super priya lier menon aa penu ngangal menon marude peru kalayum. Avalude vigaram rajapan matre english ariyaulu na just show her the cds of SAGAR ALIAS JACKEY, POKKIRI RAJA , THE KING, 20AM NOOTAND ETC. And both of them have a thought that pridviraj is the cute actor but its just only a romour. Just wath the filims chotta mumbai, big b, etc u wil find wat is cuteness. And control ur wifes tantayilataram alel natukar 2enatinum panitarum

  23. da pule abinayikan ariyila engil poy vala pichayum edut geevikada. Ne aranena ninte vgaram? Ne ninte baryade vak ket nadakuna verum oru ponganan. Nee entokeda pule tejabhayil katikootirikune? Atin tejabhai enala idandat. Raja bhai ena idandat ninte life ne atilude kanichu. Realy shame on u. If i became a director in future i wil make both ur interview as a filim.

    ini ninte baryak:
    nee aradi pule? Ne chakikotha changarana. Nine entinadi pule valartiveludakit ?kutam parayano? Ato makeup cheyt vanu tenditaram parayano? Ee papamoke ne enganaya mole kalayune? Gangesil poyal ath vatipokum pampayil poyal ayapan vare neetodum . Arivilayma oru kutamala but orumadiri tandayilataram katarut.
    Ketodi pana nayinte mole….

  24. Guys we shldnt be commenting like this…..coze tis guy desnt even deserve tat…..supriya really need to wake up…she thinks tat she is in prithviland…….somebody pinch er!!!! poor thing………

  25. What to comment abt this guy who is the most arrogant actor ever to come to film world. I just don’t like this man at all because of his head weight and I have decided never to watch his film even on TV. This chap never cared about the thousands of his fans who had assembled in front of a Mall in Payyanur where he came to inaugurate a textile showroom a little over a year. Never even looked at his fans even once. He was rather engaged in removing the floral pieces that fell upon him there prior to the inauguration than looking at the vast crowd and wishing them. What a pity the owners of WEDLOCK Payyanur did not find anybody in film world other than this arrogant guy. I did not bother to watch the interview he and his wife had with John Brittas, but heard about his wife’s foolish comment about the knowledge of English this guy possess.

  26. Prithvirajappan is an eg of worst acting.Artifical expressions & many moments overact.He certainly makes joker’s expression while performing comedy.Such a waste…………………..

  27. 1) Malayalee men( average ) feel inferior to strong opinionated individuals. Especially if he or she is another Malayalee. It’s possible that he makes them feel inferior, so they make themselves feel better by belittling him. 2) PR is touted as competition for M&M, unlike Kunchacko. So natural hatred from M&M fans. PR has never been wrong in his opinions. If in one interview, he stated that people of his generation in general lack political awareness, it is not without reason. But the people listening would dislike that. People only want to hear what they like to hear. And Prithviraj rarely says things because he wants to please people. He states what is his belief. People whose culture is to gang together and shout slogans would never like an individual who is not afraid to stand alone.
    some ppl say that praj is arrogant.but how does that matter for the average movie goer?haven’ t we seen vdo s of mammootty slapping his fan in a public function and mohanlal trying to push his fan out of a stage? does all this mean that our own so called superstars are all humble and noble and only praj is the rotten one?

  28. Enne angekarikaathavar ente cinima kaanunnathil arthamilla,,, oru nalla cinima eppozhum nalla cinimayaayirikkum,, allathe aaa cinimak award kittiyathin sheshamalla
    ath nalloru cinimayaanen parayunnath- Prithviraj sukumaran,,,namuude swantham rajuvettan……

  29. Eda mandan prithvirajappa……….who r u to criticise lalettan and mammukka? U should watch tejabhai once again ur self and think, where you are getting in?
