Pauly, the new crowd puller of the industry, has always been
vocal about his deep admiration for the mega star, Mammootty. Nivin
has always stated that he considers Mammootty as a role model.
In a recent interview given to a popular Malayalam media, the
young actor revealed that he love to imitate Mammootty since his
young age. Nivin recalled the releasing day of Sethurama Iyer CBI, on
which he dressed up like Mammootty.
According to the actor, he was doing his final year engineering
while the movie released. Nivin and his friends dressed up like the
titular character Sethurama Iyer, with a vermillion mark on the
forehead. He also made his juniors do the same.
Nivin added that he had the highly popular Sethurama Iyer
background music as his ringtone for a long time, like any other
die-hard Mammootty fan. The actor also remarked that he is equally
fond of the other stars, including Mohanlal.
He has imitated Mohanlal in one of the comedy scenes in the
blockbuster movie Premam, directed by his best buddy
Alphonse Puthren. The audiences and critics were highly impressed
with Nivin's imitating skills after watching the film.
