Malayalam movie star Nivin Pauly's association with Premam-fame Althaf Salim in his debut directorial venture was announced in 2015. The pooja ceremony of the upcoming movie took place on September 25, actor Kunchacko Boban, director Anil Radhakrishnan, other cast and crew of the film were all present during the ceremony. 

The makers have now announced the film's title and it is definitely an interesting one. The upcoming Nivin-starrer, which is being bankrolled by the actor under the home production banner Pauly Jr. Pictures, has been titled Njandukalude Naatil Oridavela (A break in the land of crabs).

Actor Krishna Kumar's daughter Ahaana Krishna has been roped in to play the female lead role in the movie. The actress, who made her acting debut in Rajeev Ravi's Njan Steve Lopez in 2014 had recently shared her excitement in associating with Nivin.
