Rajeev Ravi to direct Nivin Pauly next

After the thumping success of Kammatipadam, master craftsman Rajeev Ravi announced his next project with young superstar Nivin Pauly in the lead.

The announcement was made by the revered filmmaker on his official Facebook page on the day when Nivin celebrated his birthday in style.  Nivin will don the character of N Narayana Pillai, the legendary humanist, freedom fighter and actor.

Kammatipadam, starring Dulquer Salmaan was a trendsetter in Malayalam commercial cinema last year. Ravi has earlier directed two critically acclaimed Malayalam films, the romantic hit Annayum Rasoolum (2013) and Njaan Steve Lopez (2014).
