After playing the romantic and action roles, Nivin Pauly is going big with a period flick based on a story that took place in 1979. While exact details about his character and the script is yet to be revealed, the actor on his Facebook page confirmed that the movie titled Kairali will be based on cargo ship that went missing in the ocean.

“I was highly excited when I listened to the story,” said Nivin Pauly who confirmed that his friend Sidhartha Siva pens the script. Pauly Jr. Pictures and Real Life Works will produce the movie which will be directed by Jomon T John. It could be a big budget film considering the storyline and the huge success of PuliMurugan had given the industry a huge boost to invest and make large scale films.
