Prithviraj Sukumaran about his friendship with Dulquer Salmaan and Fahadh Faasil

The actor candidly shared that their fathers were good friends and because of them, they know each other. However, the ice-breaking moment was when the country went into lockdown in March 2020 and rediscovered their friendship. He added that Dulquer Salmaan and Fahadh Faasil live fairly close to each other in Kochi. "We are all ‘nepo kids’ so our fathers used to know each other. Dulquer’s dad, the legend Mammootty sir, my dad, who passed away very young and Fahadh’s father, Fazil sir, who is one of the iconic directors in South Indian cinema, they all knew each other," he continued.

However, as they grew, they never got the time to spend with each other, till the pandemic happened. In lockdown, they realised all of them were in Kochi within 10 minutes of driving distance and nobody was shooting, so that’s when they started hanging out with each other.
