“I want do more villain roles. Not the typical villain who just ends up getting beaten up by the hero in the end, but the more diabolical ones who actually have the potential to do some damage within the storyline,” says the young actor.
Although he did show some darker shades to the fans in his flick ‘Malarvadi Arts Club’ and ‘Da Thadiya’, Nivin has been pegged as of late as a romantic hero, not in small part due to the success of his memorable film ‘Thattathin Marayathu’, which is even being remade by other industries.
The success of his currently running film ‘1983’ in the box office has also served to bring more spotlight on this relative newcomer to the Mollywood industry – a spotlight he used well recently when he came out openly on Facebook in support of cricketer Yuvraj Singh following the debacle of the T 20 match against Sri Lanka.
Nivin’s upcoming movie will be ‘Bangalore Days’, a romantic entertainer directed by Anjali Menon and produced by Anwar Rasheed, which boasts of quite a star studded cast including Fahad Fazil, Dulquar Salman, Isha Talwar, Parvathy Menon and Nazriya Nazim.
The movie is set to come out on May 9th as of now.
