Narain"s next Malayalam flick will be Venal, directed by Ebbie Abraham, produced by Nijhin and Sheriff under the banner of Karvarna Vision. He will be portraying a very different character in the film, which also casts Jagathy, Vijayaraghvan, Lalu Alex, Kochupreman, Shammy Thilakan, Anoop Menon, Bijukuttan, Jagadeesh Prasad, Aswathy, Valsala Menon and Jagannathavarma.

Narain, who recently appeared in the Onam film, Ore Kadhal, is presently busy with his Tamil project, Aaruvathu Sinam, by Mysskin. The actor, who made his debut into movies with the Malayalam film Nizhalkuthu (directed by Adoor Gopalakrishnan), is known to be selective in choosing his films. His Malayalam hits include, For the People, Achuvinte Amma and Classmates.
He then made his foray into Tamil films delivering two good movies (Chithiram Pesuthadi and Pallikoodam). He changed his name from Sunil to Narain with his first Tamil film, Chithiram Pesuthadi.
