Indian actor Nivin Pauly is considered to be Malayalam movie industry’s superstar. The actor’s career really took off in 2012, but he’s been dominating the Malayalam niche since 2015.

Even when Nivin was unemployed for two years when he was trying to focus on his career, Rinna never used it against him but instead supported him still.
3. She was born in Kerala.
Rinna and Nivin now reside in Kochi, Kerala, and that’s actually Rinna’s hometown as well. Kochi is known for its many religious and architectural sites. It’s no doubt that the two decided to stay there and bring up their family there. Kochi is full of culture and is alive with a vibrant population.
4. She works in IT.
Given that Rinna went to school for B. Tech, it’s no surprise that she also works as an IT employee.

6. She loves to read and sing.
If Rinna could have any spare time to do anything, she’d be sitting down with a good book in hand. Also, she sings any chance she gets. It’s something that Nivin finds endearing about his dear wife, but don’t expect Rinna to start a singing career any time soon. She loves being a mom way too much.
7. She identifies as Catholic.
Religion is an important part of Indian culture, and the same goes for Rinna and her family. Rinna comes from a Syrian Catholic Nasrani family, and the she actually married Nivin at St. Dominic Catholic Church in Aluva, Emakulam. Nivin himself comes from a Syro-Malabar Catholic Nasrani family.
8. She was top of her class.

9. She never officially dated Nivin.

10. She helps Nivin with his roles.
Naturally, Rinna serves as Nivin’s sounding board when it comes to future roles and ideas for scripts. Rinna claims that she doesn’t know much about the film industry, but she uses her intuition to help Nivin as he needs. Ultimately, every single decision that Nivin has made about his career was his own. Rinna is simply there to be a pillar of strength for her husband anytime he needs her to be one.
