After making his presence felt in Hindi movies such as Naam Shabana, Aiyyaa and Aurangzeb, Malayali superstar Prithviraj Sukumaran is all set for biopic series based on Biscuit King of India, Rajan Pillai.
Titled as Biscuit King, the series will chronicle the rise and fall of Rajan Pillai, who was a stakeholder in Britannia Industries. He was charged by Singapore's Commercial Affairs Department on 22 counts of fraud and breach of trust. He died in custody in Tihar Jail in 1995.
The official handle of Yoodlee films dropped the confirmation on the series. It said, “We believe in fearless stories that can inspire.

Among other projects, Prithviraj Sukumaran will soon begin filming on L2: Empuraan, a sequel to Lucifer. Murali Gopy will write the screenplay for this film, while Mohanlal will return to play his much loved role.
