After Alphonse Puthren’s Neram and debutant Gautham Ramachandran’s Santa Maria, super star of M’town, Nivin Pauly, has got yet another big offer from Kollywood. If a source from the film industry is to be believed, filmmaker Gautham Menon has approached Nivin for his next flick. “In fact, two projects are being discussed. One will be directed by Gautham Menon himself, while the second will be directed by another filmmaker under Gautham’s production house. Hopefully, the projects will be locked soon,” says the source.
Will it be in Malayalam? “No. Both the projects will be in Tamil,” the source confirms. Interestingly, the Malayali director, who is creating hits in Tamil, Hindi and Telugu, is all set to team up with yet another star from M’town — Prithviraj, for a multilingual project. That film is expected to start production from July 2017.
In the meantime, Nivin has another Tamil film, to be directed by Pattalam director, Prabhu Radhakrishnan, and written and produced by R.D. Raja, who earlier produced Sivakarthikeyan’s Remo. Nivin is currently acting in debutant Althaf’s Njandukalude Naatil Oridavela in Malayalam.
