Nivin Pauly, the actor who has been receiving rave reviews for his performance in recently released Mili, says that he was eager to work with director Rajesh Pillai. Nivin has earlier appeared in Rajesh Pillai's blockbuster movie Traffic, in a cameo role. The actor says that he always wanted to work with the director in a full-fledged role.
In that sense, Mili is a dream-come-true project for Nivin pauly, as he got the opportunity to work with his favourite director. The actor's courage to take up a supporting role in a women-centric movie like Mili has been widely appreciated by the audience and critics.
But for Nivin, Rajesh Pillai was the prime reason behind his decision to act in Mili. Earlier, Rajesh Pillai was planning a road movie with Kunchacko Boban and Nivin Pauly in the lead roles. The movie, which was titled as Motorcycle Diaries, is reportedly delayed due to unrevealed reasons.
According to Nivin, he instantly fell in love with Mili, when director Rajesh Pillai and Mahesh Narayanan narrated the script to him. The actor makes it clear that he has no issues about acting in a women-centric film, if the script turns out be quite interesting. Nivin has earlier played the lead role in Om Shanti Oshana, which was also a heroine-oriented film.
