I’ve been a big fan of Trisha since Vinnaithaandi Varuvaayaa: Nivin Pauly
Nivin Pauly’s Onam release Njandukalude Naattil Oridavela (NNOI) has been getting great response from all the centres. This Althaf directorial has emerged the most successful among the four Onam releases. While NNOI continues to attract families, Nivin has resumed shooting for his upcoming movie Hey Jude, directed by Shyamaprasad.
Hey Jude marks the Malayalam debut of leading South Indian actress Trisha. In a recent interview to TOI, Nivin opened up about his admiration for Trisha and his experience working with her. Apparently, Nivin has been a huge fan of Trisha ever since the Vinnaithaandi Varuvaayaa days.
The ever humble actor is quoted saying, “It’s been a great experience working with Trisha. She’s friendly, down to earth and comfortable to work with. In terms of acting experience, she’s the senior. She made her debut in 2002 and I came into films almost a decade later. I have watched a lot of her films and have been a big fan since Vinnaithaandi Varuvaayaa. Now, I am fortunate enough to act with her. It’s destiny that I am able to share screen space with such big actors.”
Shoot for Hey Jude is progressing in Goa and nearby areas. It is a musical romantic tale set against the backdrop of Mangalore and Kochi. Just like other Shyamaprasad films, the protagonists in Hey Jude also have well fleshed out character skteches. Nivin Pauly and Trisha are playing oddballs in the film. Nivin is playing Jude who is a peculiar character and is inconsistent with the world around him. Trisha’s character Crystal is also a similar person.
Hey Jude explores the events that occur when two such people end up in a relationship. The movie will showcase the interesting situations that happen in their relationship, and how love and understanding transforms Jude’s life. Both the actors have pinned high expectations on the film especially Trisha who is highly excited about playing the challenging role of Crystal.
Veteran actors Mukesh, Prathap Pothen and Neena Kurup are also part of the cast. Girish Gangadharan, who won widespread appreciation for his work in Angamaly Diaries, is cranking the camera. Hey Jude is being produced by Anil Kumar under the banner of Ambalakkara Films. The movie is expected to hit screens by the end of this year.
