After a gap of four years, Nivin Pauly, Dhyan Sreenivasan and Aju Varghese will team up for a full-on entertainer. The Love Action Drama trio will collaborate as actors in Jana Gana Mana director Dijo Jose Antony’s movie, which went on floors last week.
According to reports, the film will have Nivin and Dhyan in central roles. Scripted by Sharis Mohammed, the movie is in line with Nivin’s current strategy of focusing on commercial entertainers.

The movie will have a short schedule in Dubai, where the team is currently shooting. Bulk of the shoot, however, will be in Kerala, with the team expected to fly back in April. Aju Varghese is set to join the team soon.
Nivin’s previous movie, which was helmed by The Great Father director Haneef Adeni, was also shot extensively in the UAE. The team had wrapped up its first schedule last week. The movie marked Nivin and Haneef’s second collaboration after Mikhael. Apart from Nivin, the film also has Mamitha Baiju, Arsha Baiju, Vinay Forrt, Vijilesh and Jaffer Idukki in pivotal roles.
Meanwhile, Dhyan had earlier told us that he had plans of directing Nivin for an entertainer, after Love Action Drama, which also had Aju as its co-producer. It seems the project is currently put on hold, with Dhyan busy with his acting commitments. The actor is also set to work on his script 9MM later this year. The movie, which is planned as a Malayalam-Tamil bilingual, will have Manju Warrier in the lead and is touted to be an action-entertainer.
