Prithviraj shares a heartfelt note

Prithviraj shared a heartfelt note on the death anniversary of legendary actor Bharath Gopi. The actor dedicated his much-awaited directorial 'Empuraan', the sequel of 'Lucifer', to the veteran actor. 

“One of the greatest actors to have lived. Little did I know during the times we met, that his son and I would grow up to forge a bond not just as brothers. But as a writer and director too. Empuraan is for you uncle!,” wrote Prithviraj.  Bharath Gopi, one of the finest actors in Mollywood, passed away on January 29, 2008, following a cardiac arrest.

'Empuraan' is the sequel to Prithviraj's debut directorial 'Lucifer', that starred Mohanlal in the lead role. The movie was announced last year through a short video clip featuring Mohanlal and Prithviraj in mass avatars. 

'Lucifer', which released in March 2019 was a thorough commercial entertainer. The movie fetched over Rs 200 crore at the box office, making it the second Malayalam movie to achieve this feat after Mohanlal’s Pulimurugan in 2016. The movie was bankrolled by Antony Perumbavoor.
