"I want to go slow with southern movies. I will do one-two films a year. So, that means three months, and the rest of the time I want to give to my new found Bollywood career," Prithviraj told IANS, a few days before his Bollywood debut with Rani Mukherjee.
The actor, who hails from Kerala, has no particular genre in mind for his next Bollywood project.
"I want to work in the genre that defines good cinema. Regardless of what the film is about, it should be a cinema which deserves to be made," he added.
The 29-year-old made his debut in 2002 with the Malayalam film "Nandanam" and entered Tamil cinema with the 2005 release "Kana Kandaen".
After following strict deadlines down south, he enjoyed the relaxed pace in Bollywood.
"The process of filmmaking is the same, but in the south you always work according to a deadline. The day you announce the muhurat of the film, you announce the release date. So you give yourself a deadline and everything is hurried to meet that.
"In Bollywood, you make the film at its own pace, you edit, and see the work and then decide when to release. This is how, I feel, a film should be made," he said.
"I don't mind making my debut in a film centred on the actress. My Malayalam debut was also centred on a woman. The point where I have reached in Malayalam cinema, if I reach that position in Bollywood with this film, then what is the harm?" he said.
Discussing his role in the film, he said: "I play a south Indian art student with whom Meenakshi (Rani) falls in love. He leaves certain impressions on her and goes by them but then the film reveals what he actually is. So there is a lot of mystery associated with the character."
The actor says his Hindi is pretty good and so he faced no language issues.
"Language was not a problem. Hindi is the only language apart from Malayalam and English which I can read and write. I have done many Tamil films and I am way more comfortable in Hindi than I am in Tamil; so that was not been a problem," he said.

whoa!!! haters will follow him everywhere it seems! anyway, you are a great actor, and you have proved that with your films... no one can change that... and as for the interviews... he is straight forward n says what he thinks is right, and not many ppl can do that...
@Apz.. i have seen better actors than him and thats why i feel there is nothin much to hype about this guy..!! and he is only here because of the legend his dad was!! and i dunno if u wud understand.. but his brother is a better actor than him and watch his muviz.. you will understand the class!!
but sad .. u will never understand ..
lol people over here need a reality check. if you are talking about acting in bollywood then i wonder its doomsday would be this very moment :-) and if you wanna talk about attitude i would award that people like deepika or saif or the kapoor's for that matter.
its sad that u couldnt find a good actor in prithvi even after watching his movies...because all u could find is a kapoor guys acting(agree he is a gud actor)! people say many "things" abt him...becuase he is so open to the point of being blunt...he doesnt knw to fake sweetness like other craps out there.
@Apz and @sarah kelly.. i know more of prithviraj than i bet u know,... and i have seen all his muviz... so u need not tell me how he acts.. and if u dunno i can suggest you his movies which you cannot stand for more than 10 mins..!!!
and as someone mentioned .. Indian rupee got an award for the master brain of Renjit whose muviz are class apart.. and it was never the role of Prithviraj in those movies that made it different.. it was the story and presentation.. even the movie that won prithvi raj a state award was wonderful in terms of screenplay.. not his acting!!! and its not me who needs reality check.. go check what people say about his acting! i meant people who knows to crtisize movies really!!!
@stunningstar, just wanted to add in something else, if prithviraj can survive in malayalam industry competiting with great super stars like mohanlal and mamooty then definitly he can survive in bollywood!!
My whole family LOVES you cant wait to see aiyaa loved rani and now with prithvi it going to be hit! Love you in malyalam movies opposite kavya madhvan! Will be a treat to watch you in bollywood movies more often!
@stunningstar...lols., you are funny dear., you compare a debutant with ranbir kapoor., omg!!!!..if ranbir is smart., so is prithvi..prithvi has ths southern guys look and ranbir is typical northee...if ranbir has barfi., this guy has mozhi., urumi,vasthavam., classmates..etc and etc...all these were not special movie like barfi., but in all these commercial movies his performances were great..no doubt he is a great actor and who knows he may shine in bollywood..if not also he has his own credentials in his bag...talent needs no language...he is talented...
