Dr Rajkumar's grandnephew Prithvi Vijaykumar to make Kannada debut
Launched today, Minchuhulu, directed by Kumar Mahesh, is touted to be a children’s film
The Rajkumar clan has produced yet another actor. Prithvi Vijaykumar, grandson of Dr Rajkumar’s brother SP Varadappa, is making his acting debut with Minchuhulu. The film directed by Kumar Mahesh is touted to be a children’s film, and was launched earlier today at an event where the Rajkumar brothers — Shivarajkumar, Raghavendra Rajkumar and Puneeth —were the chief guests.
According to Kumar, who has previously directed two films, Dragon and Ooty, 23-year-old Prithvi will be seen in a pivotal role with Preetam, a child artiste and the winner of a recent dance reality show, playing the lead.
“A minchuhulu (glow worm) will also be one of the characters. In fact, it will be the film’s soul. The insect becomes an inspiration to one of the characters, who takes the help of a minchuhulu to make life decisions,” Kumar reveals.
