One notable one among them is the yet untitled film he is signing up for under the direction of debutant director Shibu Anthikkad. Shibu has so far been prolific only in ad film direction and this all out entertainer of a love story will be his first venture in to the world of feature films.
“This will be a practical love story,” says Shibu about his movie and he also adds that the intent of the movie will be to thrill and “make the fans forget about their real life worries” for the duration of the viewing.
The flick has another major feature of interest going for it as well – Nivin Pauly’s makeover!
Yes, the actor who usually plays the semi urban, boy next door persona in his films will be undergoing a radical change ‘looks – wise’ in this one – a totally modern one at that!
He did do a minor (albeit funny) version of it in Bangalore Days, though it only lasted for a short while in the story.
The project in question here will launch around December, and it will have a total of five songs in it, composed by Ratheesh Vega. Shreya Ghosal will lend her voice for some of it.
The major locations where the shooting will take place has been set to Bangalore, France, Coorg and the Andamans.
Nivin is also playing a pivotal but small role in Rajesh Pillai’s Amala Paul starrer Mili. Well, to the busier than ever Nivin we say, good luck and keep ’em coming!
