Replying to his wishes, Nivin Pauly wrote – “Extremely happy to be associated for an exciting project master craftsman #RajeevRavi! This is truly an honour.” N Narayana Pillai is a very popular writer and actor in Malayalam theatre circles who has penned down more than 30 plays. Known more for his one-act plays, NN Pillai was an inspiration to many young writers and conveyed his ideologies through his plays. Pillai was said to be an atheist which was evident through his dramas, many of his contemporaries revealed in their interviews.
Nivin Pauly, who was last seen in ‘Njandukkalide Nattil Orideval’, seems to be quite kicked about playing the role of this eminent writer. The biopic is yet to be titled and will be produced the popular production house E4 Entertainments. Details about rest of the cast in the film are yet to be confirmed by the makers, which are expected to be revealed in coming days by the makers.
