Nivin Pauly, the young actor who has already achieved the star status, is all set to play the lead role in the upcoming movie, directed by National Award winning filmmaker Dr. Biju. It is Nivin's first parallel film venture.
The title and the rest of the star cast of the movie will be announced soon. According to the close sources, the movie revolves around a relevant social issue. The movie is expected to start rolling from January 2016.
Dr. Biiju has recently completed the filming of his upcoming film Valiya Chirakulla Pakshikal, which stars Kunchacko Boban in the lead role. He is planning to start the Nivin Pauly project, after the release of Valiya Chirakulla Pakshikal.
Nivin Pauly, on the other hand, hasn't had any releases after the blockbuster movie Premam. His upcoming movie Action Hero Biju, which is directed by Abrid Shine, will hit the theatres in Septemeber. The movie is produced by Nivin himself.
Earlier, Dr. Biju has publicly revealed that some of the popular actors of Malayalam movie industry have rejected his movie offers. Shockingly, Suraj Venjarammood's role in Biju's Perariyathavar was originally written for Dileep.
But he rejected the offer, stating that the movie has no market value. Later, Suraj played the character and won the National Award for Best Actor for his performance in the movie. Seems like Mollywood's attitude towards Biju is changing gradually.
