We have seen them making other language outings occasionally, but now it seems Mollywood actors are expanding their market. Recently Nivin Pauly posted a picture with Anurag Kashyap hinting at the duo getting together for a project. “Honour to meet the man himself finally !! Ardently waiting for him to join our team soon. Excited !!!,” he wrote. The actor will be soon making his Tamil debut with Santa Maria being directed by debutant Gautham Ramachandran. Later the actor will join a movie to be directed by debutant Prabhu Radhakrishnan and scripted by R D Raja.


Unni Mukundan, who recently wrapped up Janatha Garage, has signed his second Telugu film. He will be seen as the lead actor in Bhagmati opposite Anushka Shetty. The film will also mark the Telugu debut of Jayaram. Another actor who is expected to join the bandwagon is  Fahad Fazil. As per buzz, he will be making his Tamil debut alongside Nayantara and Sivakarthikeyan in a film to be directed by Mohan Raja.

Meanwhile Mammootty is making a comeback to Tamil films with the movie Peranbu. The film, which also marks the Tamil debut of Suraj Venjaramoodu,  is progressing right now.
