Nivin Pauly’s much-acclaimed police story Action Hero Biju is getting a sequel. The upcoming movie, which will also be directed by Abrid Shine, is expected to go on floors later this year or next and was confirmed by the actor’s production house Pauly Jr Pictures.

The 2016 film, which had the actor play the role of CI Biju Poulose, was lauded for its realistic yet engaging depiction of police procedures. It followed Nivin’s Premam and catapulted the actor to superstardom. Joju George, Anu Emmanuel, Suraj Venjaramoodu and Saiju Kurup were also part of the cast of Action Hero Biju that was based on the day-to-day incidents in the lives of cops.

News of the sequel first came to light after a press statement issued by the production house about its next project Mahaveeryar, which again marks the collaboration between Nivin and Abrid, and its upcoming films that includes Thaaram, Shekhara Varma Rajavu and Dear Students.

When OTTplay got in touch with Pauly Jr Pictures, a source from the team said, “The project is in the pipeline. However, there’s still no confirmation of when the film will go on floors.” Nivin is currently shootng for Rosshan Andrrews’ big budget entertainer, which has Karnataka, Kerala and UAE as its main locations.

Meanwhile, the actor will next be seen in Mahaveeryar along with Asif Ali. The film, which is also scripted by Abrid based on a story by writer M Mukundan, is touted to be a time-travel fantasy satire. Nivin plays the role of an ascetic in the movie, which has Asif as a warrior from the past. Shanvi Srivastava, Lal, Lalu Alex, Siddique and Mallika Sukumaran are also part of the movie, which was shot extensively in Rajasthan after the first lockdown. Nivin has also completed shooting for Thuramukham, Padavettu and Ram’s untitled Tamil film.
