Prithviraj Sukumaran is going through an excellent phase in both his acting and filmmaking careers, with some highly exciting projects in his kitty. The actor-filmmaker's latest theatrical release Kaduva emerged as a massive box-office success.

The makers of Kaduva recently celebrated the massive success of the film in a grand event held in Kochi.

The leading man, who addressed the audience at the success bash of Kaduva, confirmed that the Shaji Kailas directorial will get a prequel very soon. Prithviraj Sukumaran, who played the central character Kaduvakunnel Kuriachan, revealed that the prequel will depict the story of Kuriachan's father, Koruthu Mappila. For the uninitiated, the makers had hinted that Kaduva might get a sequel or prequel based on the character of Koruthu Mappila, by mentioning his daring and adventurous life in some of the film's most important scenes.

At the event, Prithviraj Sukumaran also revealed his wish list of actors for the role of Koruthu Mappila. Interestingly, the actor-producer revealed that he wants to cast Mammootty, Mohanlal, or Suresh Gopi as the central character in the Kaduva prequel. However, Prithviraj also added that he might dye his hair and play the role of Koruthu Mappila, who is in his 60s if all the three superstars of Malayalam cinema deny the offer.

The film fanatics now believe that the veteran actor is already roped in to play the role in the Kaduva prequel, and are expecting an official announcement very soon.
