Nivin Pauly to shed weight for Love Action Drama
The actor will start the project once he wraps up Kayamkulam Kochunni
Nivin Pauly will start shooting for Dhyan Sreenivasan's directorial debut Love Action Drama, once he winds up Kayamkulam Kochunni. This was confirmed by actor Aju Varghese, who is producing the film. According to Aju, the film, which stars Nayantara as the female lead, is likely to go on the floors by June.
Nivin is also set to lose the extra pounds he gained for Kayamkulam Kochunni. "Nivin's character is quite raw in Kayamkulam Kochunni. But, in Love Action Drama, which is a rom-com, he needs to look different. So, he is planning to lose all that weight to get into character," says Aju.
According to him, Dhyan has finished scripting and the makers are busy with pre-production work, including location scouting. Meanwhile, Aju Varghese, who was last seen along with Nivin Pauly in Hey Jude, will not take up any acting offers in 2018 other than Love Action Drama, so that he can devote more time for his debut production venture.
"I am not great when it comes to multitasking. So, I have decided not to take up acting offers this year. As of now, I am part of five films, the shoots of which are all wrapped up. All I have left is dubbing. So, my focus at the moment is just Love Action Drama," says the actor.
Love Action Drama, inspired by Dhyan's father Sreenivasan's famous film Vadakkunokki Yanthram, has Nivin Pauly playing Dineshan and Nayantara in Shobha's character. In an earlier interview, the director has said that though Nivin's character has some similarities to Dineshan of Vadakkunokki Yanthram, the two films have nothing in common. Shaan Rahman will compose the music for the film, while Vivek Harshan will handle the editing.
