Nivin Pauly’s Kayamkulam Kochunni starts rolling

Mollywood superstar Nivin Pauly’s Kayamkulam Kochunni started rolling on Sunday.  The upcoming film inspired by the legendary real life thief Kayamkulam Kochunni, is directed by ace filmmaker Roshan Andrews.  The 19-century thief stole from the haves and gave it to the have-nots.

The upcoming film will narrate Kochunni’s Robin Hood-like adventures and focus on other details in his life that inspired him to do the things he did. “It’s a blessing to play on screen the life of Kerala’s most celebrated Robin Hood. I am keenly looking forward for it,” Nivin wrote on his Facebook page on Sunday.

Bobby and Sanjay has penned the script and Amala Paul will be playing the female lead.

Gokulam Gopalan is bankrolling the project under his banner Sree Gokulam Films.
