Sarath Kumar in Nivin Pauly's film

The actor will play a pivotal role in Kayamkulam Kochunni, which tells the story of a real life Robin Hood

Published: 16th August 2017

Sarath Kumar is all set to play an important role in the Nivin Pauly starrer Kayamkulam Kochunni. Incidentally, this is not the first time the actor is appearing in Nivin's film. He was earlier featured in Metro, which had Nivin in the lead. 

Scripted by Bobby and Sanjay, we hear the film is inspired by a real life thief Kayamkulam Kochunni, who stole from the rich and gave it to the poor. Filmmaker Rosshan Andrews of 36 Vayathinile fame is directing this one, and Amala Paul will be playing the female lead. The film will tell the tale of Kochunni’s Robin Hood-like adventures and also focus on other details of his life. 

It is expected to start rolling as soon as Nivin wraps up his portions in Geetu Mohandas’ project Moothon. We hear shooting will take place in Kayamkulam and Sri Lanka. According to sources, Nivin will also undergo training in Kerala’s traditional martial arts Kalaripayattu.
