Malayalam heartthrob Nivin Pauly has started working on his new Tamil film, which will be the remake of Kannada thriller Ulidavaru Kandanthe. Contrary to some reports, the project is not being made in Malayalam but only in Tamil.
This will be the first time Nivin will star in a straight Tamil film, because even his last Tamil outing Neram, was simultaneously shot in Malayalam. The project marks the debut of actress Shraddha Srinath, recently seen in Kannada thriller U-Turn.
The makers commenced the principal shooting in Manapad earlier this week and they will continue filming there till the month end. Most of the film will be shot in Tuticorin and a few other parts of Tamil Nadu along the coastline. Having spent over a year on the script and pre-production, the project has finally taken off thanks to the support of Nivin, who helped director Gautham Ramachandran through the scripting process and also in finding producers.
Nivin will also join hands with Theri director Atlee next for a Tamil project. This project will be directed by Atleeās assistant while he will produce it.
