Cinematographer Jomon T John makes his directorial debut with a film titled Kairali, with Nivin Pauly in the lead.
“The movie is based on Kerala’s first ship M V Kairali, which disappeared in 1979 just off the coast of India with a crew of 49 members. I am totally excited to be part of this ever since I heard the story,” says Nivin Pauly.
The movie is being scripted by Sidhartha Siva, who directed Nivin’s Sakhavu recently.
Kairali is being produced jointly by Pauly Jr Pictures and Real Life Works. The shooting will begin in December.
