It is confirmed that Nivin Pauly’s upcoming film has been titled Kairali. Reports say that the film is based on historical events that happened in the 1970s and will focus mainly on the mysterious disappearance of Kerala’s first ship MV Kairali in 1979.

Reports say that Kairali will start rolling from December 2017 onwards and would be a 2018 release.

Announcing the project through his Facebook page, Nivin wrote, “I am totally excited to be part of this ever since I heard the story. The movie will be scripted by my dear friend Sidhartha Siva and it will be jointly produced by Pauly Jr Pictures and Real Life Works.”

Nivin Pauly made his acting debut with the 2010 release Malarvaadi Arts Club and turned a producer with Action Hero Biju five years later. He is also producing Njandukalude Nattil Oridavela, which is due for release this Onam.

The star is busy with a slew of Malayalam films in various stages of production including Hey Jude, Love Action Drama, Moothon and Kayamkulam Kochunni. His Tamil movie Richie has reached the post production stage and he also has one Telugu film Vaalujada for which the groundwork is on.
