Prithviraj is known as a shrewd and sensible actor in film circles. Apparently, he has transcended into a shrewd film maker too. He had met the right people and had everything fall in place before he started with his debut directorial Lucifer starring Lalettan. Before Lucifer's filming began, Prithviraj had personally visited Minister for Co- Operation, Tourism and Devaswom Mr Kadakampally Surendran. In the press meet, he was asked if the meeting was fruitful. To this Prithvi replied that the meeting paved way to the most important part of film- permission to shoot in the heritage site Kanakakunnu Palace. Prithvi had promised the Minister that his team would be extra careful about the sanctity of the site.
