"I never expected that I will become an actor. I was more into academics and as a result, my family members and friends believed that I will write civil service examinations. Nandanam is very close to my heart, as this film brought me to the film industry. Next comes Vellithira directed by Bhadran sir. At that time, I was staying in Abad Plaza hotel. Director Jayaraj sir walked into my room and asked me whether I came to know about the film's reaction. When I told no, he asked me to look out of the window where I saw people jammed packed. There were queues from Kavitha theater which reached until MG Road. I pretty much know that the crowd was due to the presence of Bhadran sir in the director's seat. But for me, it was really an unforgettable moment," said Prithviraj.

Talking about Vargam, Prithviraj said, "Vargam made me evolve as an actor, perhaps more than just an actor. Padmakumar who directed Vargam was an assistant director in Nandanam. We two were actually growing together. The next movies in my mind are Lucifer and Ayyappanum Koshiyum. Both these films are beautiful, and they have some iconic characters." 

Prithviraj Sukumaran added that there are a few movies like Ayaalum Njanum Thammil, Memories, and Mumbai Police which are also special. But he made it clear that the first five movies he mentioned initially hold a special place in his heart.
