Crazy Creator Trivia

Naveen Polishetty is a rising actor in the film industry. However, a lot of people recognize him from his creator days. He rose to fame with his portrayal of the “Average” guy in AIB’s Honest Engineering Placements. Also, he did a lot of sketches and podcasts with AIB before bagging the role of “ACID” in the movie Chichhore. 

Here’s a funny story of how he got that role!

Nitish Tiwari, the Director, called the casting head and asked him to send him the audition video of “Nivin Pauly”, who is a huge Malayalam superstar.

But, the casting head interpreted it as Naveen Poli (Poli meaning Polishetty) and called him. When he told him that Nitish Tiwari wanted his audition, Naveen couldn’t believe that the director who had just given a 1000 crore movie, Dangal, wanted his screen test. Surprised Naveen sent the audition asap.

However, when the video reached Nitish Tiwari, he felt something was off and found out that this isn’t Nivin Pauly. (The guy he asked for xD) and discarded the audition.

4 Months went by and they still couldn’t find the right guy for the role. 

One day, Nitish Tiwari was sitting with a writer who showed him Naveen’s viral rant video on a 9-5 job and he loved it. His immediate reaction was, “This is that fake Nivin Pauly, he is good, call him.”

Later, Naveen sent an audition again and got selected!

Bonkers, right? Here’s a clip of Naveen sharing that story!
