Working with Nivin was dream-like, says Gautham

IANS  |  Chennai 

Debut director Gautham Ramachandran describes the experience of working with actor Nivin Pauly nothing less than a dream. The duo has teamed up for upcoming yet-untitled Tamil remake of Kannada thriller "Ulidavaru Kandanthe".

"Working with Nivin has been nothing short of a dream. The entire unit was in love with him. Throughout the shoot, he was so accommodating, involving and extremely friendly," Gautham told IANS.

After the rage of the 2015 Malayalam film "Premam" in Tamil Nadu, this will be Nivin's first Tamil outing.

Gautham says the "Premam" frenzy has gone beyond Tier 1 cities and multiplexes.

Recalling an incident while shooting with Nivin, he said: "When we were shooting in Thoothukudi, Nivin was mobbed by hundreds of fans. We had to seek police protection to continue shooting. I understand if a similar incident happened in Chennai, but I was shocked to see he had such a fan following in a small town."

The film, which is inching closer to completion, also stars Natarajan Subramaniam, Shraddha Srinath and Lakshmi Priyaa Chandramouli.

Although some reports claimed that the film might use yesteryear hit film's title "Avargal", Gautham denied it.

"We did consider the title 'Avargal', but since it's already out we might not use it. We are planning to come up with something new and easily relatable," he said.

The next schedule of the film commences in Kolkata from this week.
