That Nivin Pauly and director Roshan Andrews are working together for the first time in a movie titled Kayamkulam Kochunni is not news anymore. The filmâ€™s shooting is in progress and it is expected to hit the silver screens sometime in 2018. The exact release date has not been revealed yet. According to reports, the film is based on the life of the highwayman Kayamkulam Kochunni who lived in the early 19th century.
The latest buzz is that the duo may team up for another film after wrapping up the current project. Reports indicate that their next will be scripted by ace writer Unni R and it will be a survival thriller. The groundwork for the project is on but it is unclear when it would go on the floors. The scriptwriter is reported to have said that discussions are being held and an official confirmation would come from the director.
In the meantime, Roshan Andrews and Nivin Pauly are busy with the progress of Kayamkulam Kochunni. Written by Bobby - Sanjay, the film is being bankrolled by Gokulam Gopalan under the Sree Gokulam Films banner. The star cast includes Nivin Pauly in the title role with Babu Antony, Sunny Wayne, Amala Paul and Priyanka Thimmesh in pivotal roles. While the filmâ€™s shooting began in Thalappady, Kasaragod last month, sources say that it will be shot extensively in Sri Lanka and parts of Karnataka. Gopi Sunder has composed music for this film with Binod Pradhan wielding the camera.
Nivin Paulyâ€™s last release Njandukalude Nattil Oridavela was a hit and the star is expecting the release of his Tamil movie Richie which is slated to hit the marquee on December 1, 2017. Directed by Gautham Ramachandran, it is a neo-noir crime action entertainer that will mark Nivinâ€™s direct entry into Kollywood. Richie, incidentally, is the remake of the Kannada hit flick Ulidavaru Kandanthe, penned by Rakshit Shetty.
The actor also has two Malayalam films Hey Jude and Moothon in different stages of production.
