Many films were offered, the contract ruined
Prithvi told that after the film ‘Dil Ka Kya Kasoor’ became a hit, he saw such stardom, which he had never imagined. He felt as if he was having a dream. According to Prithvi, after ‘Dil Ka Kya Kasoor’, the makers offered him and Divya Bharti’s pair many films. Everyone was anxious to cast both of them in his film, but due to the contract, he could not sign a film. The contract ruined Prithvi’s career.

Although Prithvi is happy that only for a short time, he can taste stardom like Amitabh Bachchan and Rajesh Khanna. Recalling that small phase of his stardom, Prithvi had said, ‘That period was such a period that it seemed that I was dreaming. The girls used to lie down in front of the car I used to go by. They used to say that we will not let you go until you give us an autograph, don’t take a picture with us. I was also shocked that such following also happens.

Prithvi was offered ‘Darr’ and ‘Deewana’
But Prithvi is sorry that in the affair of the contract, many such films came out of his hands, which later became blockbusters and made careers of many actors. According to Prithvi, he was offered many films like ‘Darr’ and ‘Deewana’. But the contract was such that not only kept him away from films but also from Mumbai. But Prithvi still remained in films till 1996 and then made a distance. A few years later, he got films like ‘Maa Tujhe Salaam’, ‘Aaj Ka Andha Kanoon’ and ‘Khanjar: The Knife’. But in this, he got the side role of someone’s friend, someone’s cousin and sometimes inspector. Prithvi was last seen in the film ‘Jimmy’ in 2008 and then said goodbye to Bollywood. Prithvi now wants to return. Prithvi had said that he wants to entertain people, whether he does it by becoming an actor or a filmmaker. He has some stories and if given a chance, he would definitely like to make a film.
Said this thing about friend Divya Bharti
Prithvi mostly lived in Bangalore instead of Mumbai due to his contract. Because of this, Prithvi could not even meet Divya Bharti for the last time. Divya Bharti died on 5 April 1993. She had fallen from the fifth floor of her apartment in Mumbai. Prithvi had a good friendship with Divya Bharti. Remembering Divya, Prithvi had told, ‘She was a very nice girl, she was friendly. She was cheerful. We both had good friendship with each other. Don’t know what was written in luck that she left us at a very young age. I was not in Mumbai during his last days. Went to Bangalore. Was in contract, didn’t stay here much.
