Nivin Pauly who made a good debut in Neram directed by Alphonse Putharen became a sensation with his recent blockbuster romance drama Premam, which successfuly ran for 100 days in Chennai screens.
Now, Nivin has signed a Tamil film with director Gautham Ramachandran, a former assistant to cinematographer-turned-director Rajeev Menon and auteur Mysskin. Nivin will play the role of a rustic, devil-may-care role.
The female lead and other supporting cast will be finalized and official announcement will be made soon. The shooting is expected to take place in and around important hotspots in the coastal town Thothukudi.
