After the success of his latest movie "Premam", the current sensation of Malayalam cinema, actor Nivin Pauly, is all set for the release of his next film "Action Hero Biju". According to sources close to the film industry, the movie, which is directed by Abrid Shine, is scheduled for its release by October.

Though an official confirmation regarding the release date is awaited, it is likely to be out on October 16.

With Nivin's popularity hitting the sky after "Premam', distributors are queuing up to buy the movie even at a high price.

It should be noted that the last time when Nivin Pauly and Abrid Shine worked together for "1983", it turned out to be a milestone film in the history of Malayalam cinema. The movie also went on to win some of the prestigious film awards. "1983" was a sports drama fiction, which revolved around a cricket enthusiast, Rameshan (Nivin Pauly), and the incidents of his life during the 30 years spanning from 1983 World Cup to 2013.

"Action Hero Biju", which is also produced by Nivin Pauly, had made headlines for several reasons. Recently there were reports on the shooting of the movie being suspended because of several issues in production. Nivin Pauly later clarified that the shooting of the film is going on "peacefully".

The movie is touted to be a complete action flick. Nivin will play the role of a police officer who also has a great sense of humour and music.

The upcoming movie also has a star cast including Anoop Menon, Joju George and Saiju Kurup.
