Mollywood actor Prithviraj Sukumaran is all set to direct his first film 'Lucifer' with superstar Mohanlal playing the lead role.

In a recent interview with a Malayalam magazine, Prithviraj revealed that he has great admiration for Mohanlal. 

Interestingly, when he was asked him what would he do if he finds himself to be Lalettan one morning, the 'Vimanam' actor replied with a smile, “I am a big fan of Mohanlal. In fact, both of us live in the same building now. Sometimes we run into each other. Though I admire him a lot, I don’t want to be Mohanlal."

"The same is with Mammukka. I don’t think there will be any Malayalee who doesn’t admire Mohanlal and Mammootty,” the youngster added. 

Prithviraj also said in the interview that he loves travelling. However, his busy shooting schedule often makes it difficult for him to fulfil his travel goals. “I have been thinking for a while to take some time off movies to do some extensive travelling, but I never got the chance," he pointed out.

On the work front, Prithviraj seems to have bagged some good projects. The actor, who has two films with female directors Roshni Dinaker and Anjali Menon in the pipeline, has also signed his next with 'Punyalan' fame Ranjith Shankar.
