The popular character artist died last year under mysterious circumstances. She recollected that Vinayan’s Athbhutha Dweepu gave Prithviraj the much-needed break in the industry. Speculations of foul play in his death were also rife and even actor Dileep was accused to have had a role in his untimely death. He said he wanted to pursue a career in films. He was pressurised to say sorry for acting in Vinayan’s film and when he didn’t give in, he was kept away from the industry for three months,” she recalled. Powerful organisations like Association of Malayalam Movie Artists and Film Employees Federation of Kerala had imposed a ban on him, preventing members of film fraternity from working with him. At one point in time, people who sidelined my husband’s career also tried doing the same to Prithviraj. However, the director used legal means to remove the industry ban on him. Vinayan is currently shooting Chalakkudykkaran Changath, which he said was a tribute to late actor Kalabhavan Mani.
