Prithviraj: No Time for Tamil

Prithviraj has no dates for a role in the Tamil remake of the Malayalam superhit Traffic

He's not been seen on Kollywood screens since Mani Ratnam's Raavanan. And it looks like Kollywood will have to wait longer for Prithviraj to be part of another Tamil film. The actor recently had to refuse a role in the Tamil remake of the Malayalam superhit Traffic.

The actor was approached by maker Rajesh Pillai, who will be wielding the megaphone for this remake as well. A source from the team tells us, "The film, which is being produced by Radhika Sarath Kumar, has a host of interesting actors. The maker, who has retained Remya Nambeesan from the original cast, wanted to have another familiar face from Malayalam cinema and was banking on Prithviraj to say yes as he's popular in Tamil Nadu too."

But, Prithviraj doesn't seem to have the required dates as he is busy with his Bollywood debut, Ayya. Additionally, he also has nearly half a dozen Malayalam projects, which rule out his being part of the film. When contacted, he said, "I've been offered the film, but will not be able to be a part of it owing to my dates or the lack of it."
