Vineeth Sreenivasan is my guru, Love Action Drama is inspired by 1989 movie Vadakkunokkiyanthram: Nivin Pauly
Malayalam-Tamil star actor Nivin Pauly, in a recent interview, said that he will always be loyal to his Vineeth Sreenivasan, who introduced him to the Malayalam film industry.
Nivin had played one of the main roles in Vineeth's directional debut Malarvaadi Arts Club in the year 2010. He then went on to make it big by playing the lead role in the 2012 romantic film Thattathin Marayathu, which was also directed by Vineeth.
Talking about Vineeth, Nivin said, "He was the one who introduced me to the industry. So, we have that kind of rapport. It's like going back to the guru. I see him as my guru. I will always be loyal to him."
On the work front, Nivin is currently working on the movie, Love Action Drama which is said to be inspired by the 1989 Malayalam movie Vadakkunokkiyanthram.
"It is not similar to any character from that film. It's just that Vineeth's brother is directing the film. He liked that film very much so, he just took the names of the hero and heroine from that film. The story, situations and characters are all different. Dineshan and Shobha was a hit pair. The names are famous in Kerala. So, Dhyan took the names for his film," said Nivin.
