Nivin Pauly, the young crowd puller of Malayalam cinema has backed out from the upcoming Major Ravi project. The director himself revealed that Nivin Pauly is no more a part of his next directorial venture, in a recent interview given to a leading Malayalam media. The Padavettu actor decided to walk out of the project, after one and a half years of the announcement.
Even though Major Ravi has not revealed the exact reason behind Nivin Pauly's exit from the project, the sources suggest that the actor walked out due to creative differences. Even though the filmmaker later approached Dileep for the project, the actor too decided to pass the offer without citing any reasons. The team is now planning to cast another actor for the project, which is said to be a love story that is set in Punjab.
Coming to Nivin Pauly, the rumour mills suggest that the actor is planning to go for a complete track change in his career, and is no longer interested in playing boy-next-door characters. If the reports are to be true, Nivin has decided to walk out of a few projects, which he has signed earlier, due to the same reason.
However, the sources suggest that the actor is still open to playing romantic roles. Bismi Special, one of his most awaited upcoming projects, is said to be a breezy love story. But apart from its project, all the other upcoming films in Nivin Pauly's career are experimental projects based on unique concepts.
The actor will be next seen in Sunny Wayne's debut production venture Padavettu, which is directed by newcomer Liju Krishna. He is also joining hands with Rajeev Ravi for the first time, for the upcoming period-political thriller Thuramukham. Nivin Pauly has also signed a few promising projects including Bismi Special, Gangs Of Mundanmala, Dhyan Sreenivasan's next directorial venture, and so on.
