Mahaveeryar, starring Nivin Pauly and Asif Ali, continues to be successful in theatres. The film is getting good reviews from the audience. The film is directed by Abrid Shine. Each and every character in the film has gotten great attention from the audience. Mallika Sukumaran, Siddique, Lal, and Lalu Alex handled their roles beautifully.
Mallika Sukumaran played the role of Kaladevi in Mahaveeriyar. Mallika handled the comedy scenes in the film very interestingly. Nivin Pauly is now talking about casting Mallika Sukumaran in the film. He was speaking in an interview given to IndiaGlitz Malayalam.
Nivin said that Abrid Shine insisted that Mallika Sukumaran should play this character, and it was great to work with Mallika.
"The sequence between me and Mallika Chechi in Mahaveeryar was done with a lot of laughter. Chechi and I have worked together in a love action drama before. It's great to work with her. We enjoyed working on Mahaveeryar too.
Chechi's presentation style and timing are good. It's cool to see Chechi doing scenes in her own style. Shine Chetan (Abrid Shine) insisted that Mallika Chechi should do this character. That's how I talked to her. I got her date by luck. Chechi is a very busy artist. There was a doubt whether I would get a date because she was doing so many films. But luckily she was ready," said Nivin Pauly.
The film is produced under the banner of Nivin Pauly's production company, Pauly Junior Pictures and Indian Movie Makers.
