Nivin Pauly's next film was announced on Monday. Moothon, written and directed by Geetu Mohandas, is expected to release in 2018. 

The poster shows Nivin Pauly sporting nose and ear piercings, with a scar cutting through his eyebrow. And the beard is intact!

Rajeev Ravi and Anurag Kashyap are also part of the team. Interestingly, cinematographer Rajeev Ravi had made some offensive comments about writer/actor/director Sreenivasan two years ago, which led to many from the industry, including Nivin Pauly, come out in support of Sreenivasan.

While nothing much is known about the subject of the film, the title and Nivin Pauly's look suggest that he might be playing a tribal in it. 

Speaking to The News Minute, the film's marketer Gokul Nath G, said that he's not at liberty to reveal more details about the film and that we'd have to wait for the director to do so. 

Geetu Mohandas has made two films so far, a short film in Malayalam called Kelkkunnundo and the critically acclaimed Liar's Dice, a Hindi film. Geetu has also acted in Tamil and Malayalam films previously. 

Kollywood actor Dhanush wished the team good luck. Others on Twitter, too, have responded favourably to the poster.
