Actor Nivin Pauly seems to be coming out of his comfort zone by becoming part of some serious subjects and has now announced yet another promising project in Malayalam. Interestingly, the movie marks the debut of Kerala State Film Award winning cinematographer Jomon T John, and is based on a real life incident that happened way back in 1979.
The upcoming movie, titled Kairali, is based on Kerala's first ship MV Kairali with 49 members on board that disappeared off the Indian coast in 1979. Sidhartha Siva, who recently helmed Nivin-starrer Sakhavu, will pen the script of the movie, while it is bankrolled by the young star under the banner of Pauly Jr Pictures in association with Real Life Works. Nivin, who is excited to be part of Kairali, has revealed that the movie will go on floors by December 2017.
