Nivin Pauly is not playing the lead role in Kunchacko Boban's production debut. Instead, the movie will have Kunchacko Boban himself in the central role. Sidhartha Siva, the director of the film cleared the air recently.
It was rumoured that Chackochan is planning to cast his close buddy Nivin in his production debut, directed by Sidhartha. But, the fact is that Nivin is acting in the director's some other venture; not in the Kunchacko Boban project.
Reportedly, Sidhartha Siva will first direct the Nivin Pauly starrer, in which the actor plays a student leader. Later, the director will begin the work of Kunchacko Boban's production debut, which will start rolling by the beginning of 2016.
Kunchacko Boban is currently filming for Rajesh Pillai's upcoming psychological thriller Vettah, in which he co-stars Manju Warrier and Indrajith. The movie, which is said to be the first ever mind-game flick, will hit the theatres on January 2016.
Nivin Pauly, on the other hand, is all set to release his production debut Action Hero Biju. The actor plays the title role in the movie, directed by Abrid Shine. The movie is expected to be released for Christmas 2015.
