When two stars from different film industries collaborate, movie buffs are in for a special treat. This time around, it's Malayalam star Nivin Pauly and Kannada star Rakshit Shetty who are teaming up.

In an interview with the Times of India, Nivin had said that he is planning to collaborate with Rakshith Shetty and that it would be a cameo appearance.

However, the star is confident that the language barriers would be done away with, paving way for artists from various film industries to work together. It may be mentioned here that Nivin Pauly is currently working on the Tamil project Richie, which is the remake of the Kannada film Ulidavaru Kandathe that had Rakshith Shetty playing the lead role.

Richie is currently in the post-production mode and is likely to hit the marquee later this year.

Having made his acting debut with the hit flick Malarvadi Arts Club in 2010, Nivin Pauly has carved a niche for himself in the Malayalam film industry by bagging some prestigious projects. He is currently busy with Kayamkulam Kochunni in which he plays the Robin Hood style highway thief. The film is being directed by Roshan Andrews and Nivin has done a lot of homework to get into the skin of the role he is playing.

Apart from undergoing a major make-over in terms of looks, Nivin is also training in the martial art of Kalaripayattu. Scripted by Bobby Sanjay, Kayamkulam Kochunni has Amala Paul playing the heroine. The shooting of this film has been going on in various locations in Karnataka and the team will be leaving for Sri Lanka to can a few important portions. With Nivin’s announcement about teaming with Rakshith, we can expect yet another exciting project from him!
