Dinesh, who was seen in serious roles in the recent past, including in Irandaam Ulaga Porin Kadaisi Gundu, is back to where he started. He has been roped in for a feel-good film, Naanum Single Thaan, in which he reportedly plays an ardent fan of Nayanthara.
While Deepti, who has worked in Malayalam and Kannada movies, has been brought on board as Dinesh's pair, Gopi directs the film.
When DC contacted Gopi, he spilled the beans about the film. “I wrote the script keeping Nayan and Vignesh (Shivn) in mind and even wanted to rope them in as the lead pair. Due to various constraints, it did not work out. The story revolves around a simple happy-go-lucky guy and a fan of Nayanthara, who is inspired to be a tattoo artist after seeing a tattooed Nayan in the film Billa. His aim is to marry a girl like Nayan and scouts around for one. NST is a fun-filled entertainer.”
