Shaji Kailas is remaking Naaduvazhikal with Prithviraj playing Arjun. Last month the 'pooja' of the film was held at Mascot Hotel in Thiruvananthapuram.
Naaduvazhikal directed by Joshy starring Mohanlal in 1980's was a milestone in Mohanlal's path to be a Superstar. The same may happen with the upcoming superstar Prithviraj too.

SN Swamy who wrote the original says: "Naaduvazhikal was a landmark movie for Mohanlal as an action mass hero who fights, says punchline dialouges, cracks jokes with friends, romances a mystery girl and comes back from a big city to a small town to help his dad who has been framed up by his rivals. Among the younger lot of actors, I think it will fit Prithviraj the best."

This action packed entertainer is produced by S Chandrakumar under the banner of Malavika Productions. Shooting of Naaduvazhikal is expected to start in September.
