Suriya and Jyothika, Kollywood's power couple, visited the sets of Nivin Pauly's upcoming film Kayamkulam Kochunni on Sunday.

Both the stars launched the first look of the film which is about Kerala's legendary highwayman from the 19th century. Directed by Rosshan Andrrews, the film also stars Amala Paul, Priyanka Thimmesh and Babu Antony.

The sketch shows a closely shaved Nivin (is that why he's wearing his cap all the time now, we wonder) looking quite grim. The actor has often been accused of playing the same kind of charming youngster role and he seems to be out to prove his detractors wrong.

Director Rosshan Andrrews had made the Malayalam film How Old Are You? which marked Manju Warrier's return to cinema. He then went on to direct the Tamil remake of the film with Jyothika in the lead role. 36 Vayathiniley was the actor's comeback to cinema as well.

The visuals from the sets show a genial Nivin with the star guests and a smiling director. The actor posted his thoughts on his social media pages, thanking Suriya and Jyothika from "the bottom of our hearts" and said that he couldn't explain how all of them felt. Nivin ended the note with 'nanri', the Tamil word for 'thanks'.

Interestingly, the actor is all set to make his debut with his first Tamil film on December 8. Richie, also starring Shraddha Srinath, will see him play the role of a Tamil rowdy.
