Nivin Pauly, the charming actor is all set to essay a historical character. Reportedly, Nivin Pauly is playing the famed robber who lived in Kayamkulam of Travancore state, in the 19th century.
The yet to be titled movie which based on Kottarathil Shankunni's Aithihyamala, is directed by Roshan Andrews. Popular scriptwriter duo Bobby-Sanjay pens the story, screenplay, and dialogues for the movie.
Reportedly, Nivin is extremely excited with the concept and immediately decided to do the project. Earlier, legendary actor Sathyan had played Kayamkulam Kochunni, in the 1966-released movie of the same name.
Director Roshan Andrews, who confirmed the news recently, revealed some interesting facts about the project. Even though Aithiyamala depicts Kochunni's story, there only a very little detail about his personal life.
But, the movie will concentrate more on Kayamkulam Kochunni's personal life, especially his love life. Bobby and Sanjay scripted the film with the help of a history students' group, after a 2-year-long research.
The project, which is made with a budget of 10-12 Crores, is produced by Gokulam Gopalan for Sree Gokulam Movies. The team is planning to shoot the movie, at the various locations of Kayamkulam and Sri Lanka.
Interestingly, Nivin Pauly will use the ancient Travancore slang in the film. A debutante will essay the female lead in the movie, which will have a star cast which majorly features new faces.
The team is yet to finalise the cinematographer of the project. Satheesh, the sound designer of Baahubali and Talaash, will handle the audio designing. Kabali music director Santhosh Narayanan has been roped in to compose the music.
