It was a few days ago Mollywood actor and filmmaker Prithviraj Sukumaran announced his second directorial 'Bro Daddy' that will have Mohanlal and Kalyani Priyadarshan in the lead roles. While the audience has pinned high hopes on the superhit combination, Prithvi in a recent interview revealed that his upcoming directorial will be a happy film. He said that Mollywood actually misses a happy film ever since the year 2020. The actor said that the entire industry has been forced to start thinking about "contained films" considering the pandemic situation.

"I think the primary reason for that is all the filmmakers, actors, and producers -- all of us -- were forced to start thinking about contained films. Films that could pull off under these circumstances. More often than not, when you start thinking on these lines, the genre that you start deviating towards is either a thriller, a dark satire happening in real space, like 'Joji'. As is the usual practice when you start thinking about happy films -- films that have a lot of actors, laughter, joy, comedy, and music -- you start thinking that this is big and the film has many locations, people, and places. So, you don't usually think on those lines, when you think what kind of a film you can pull off under the given circumstances (of the pandemic and lockdown)," Prithvi told in an interview to IANS.

Talking about Bro Daddy, Prithvi said that he was impressed with the writers' script and found it hilarious. After narrating the idea to Mohanlal over a zoom call, the superstar also liked it and gave a green signal for the project. "I was supposed to come with my next directorial long back, which was supposed to be a sequel to 'Lucifer'. It was a much bigger film. If things would have been as we wished, then it would have been shot this year, but due to obvious reasons, we couldn't start. To me, it seems we are badly missing a happy film in Malayalam cinema over the past one and half years. All of the content we see in Kerala is dark. It's either a murder mystery or a dark satire or an investigative thriller. I thought we were all badly missing a happy film, which is when these two writers (Sreejith N and Bibin Maliekal) came and narrated the script to me. I found it to be interesting, hilarious, and more than anything I found it to be a really enjoyable, light watch. I casually narrated the idea to Mr. Mohanlal over a zoom call and he said that we are doing this and the project took off," Prithviraj said.

Prithviraj is currently awaiting the release of his new movie 'Cold Case' which will be released on Amazon Prime Video on June 30.
