Two super-talented stars who are on top of their game right now are coming together in Love Action Drama.

Name the reigning stars of the Malayalam film industry. Yes, Nivin Pauly’s name is bound to be up there. The actor with the boy-next-door charm and huge acting chops has been ruling the charts for a while now, with films like Premam, Neram, Bangalore Days and Jacobinte Swargarajyam to his credit.

Nivin Pauly is currently shooting with top Kollywood actress Trisha for Hey Jude. But it gets even better. Nivin Pauly announced recently that his next film, titled Love Action Drama, is with none other than Nayanthara, the undisputed queen of Kollywood at this time. Love Action Drama is being directed by Dhyan Sreenivasan and is set to release later this year.

If Nivin Pauly is an in-demand actor in the Malayalam industry, Nayanthara has been on the up and up ever since she returned to films after a brief hiatus. With hit films like Naanum Rowdy Thaan, Raja Rani and Puthiya Niyamam sending her rankings spiralling upwards, her position at the top in indisputable. In fact, Nayan is said to be one of the highest paid actresses down South. Her most recent, Dora, won her critical acclaim and she is now awaiting the release of Aramm and Imaikka Nodigal.

There is also speculation that Nayanthara has been approached to play the role of Draupadi in the Kannada film, Kurukshetra.

Naturally, fans are very excited to see Nivin Pauly and Nayanthara share screen space in Love Action Drama. It’s a first and expectations are high. It seems Nayan will play a traditional girl with whom the Nivin character is head over heels. It’s going to be one enjoyable on-screen romance, to be sure.
