With 23 films, Nivin has become one of the most successful actors in the Malayalam entertainment industry.

Anu Emmanuel

Actress Anu, daughter of producer Thankachan Emmanuel, began her career as a child artiste in Jayaram-Samvrutha Sunil starrer "Swapna Sanchari" in 2011 and is making her entry to the industry as a heroine opposite Nivin in "Action Hero Biju". She has already become an Instagram star for her glamorous pictures on social media and the audience is eagerly waiting to see her performance on the big screen.

Abrid Shine

Although Abrid has directed only one film, he has become one of the trusted directors in the industry after his sports drama film "1983", which received good response from all quarters. Therefore, the upcoming Abrid directorial is one of the most awaited projects of the year.

Nivin-Abrid Combination

Nivin Pauly received the Kerala State Film Awards 2014 for Best Actor for his performance in Abrid's debut directorial venture "1983". The association of the actor-director is one of the major highlights of "Action Hero Biju" and it also has directors Jude Anthony Joseph, Major Ravi in pivotal roles. 


Abrid has already revealed that "Action Hero Biju" is not like usual action thrillers in which a police officer is seen chasing a goon, instead the movie deals with the day-to-day life of the cops. The character played by Nivin — SI Biju Paulose — is said to be a familiar person who lives in our society and is not similar to the police roles done by many superstars in Malayalam till date.
