And cast opposite Nivin Pauly, in the character of Shobha is none other than south beauty Nayanthara, for their first film together. “The film has been titled Love, Action, Drama. It’s a modern day take on Vadakkunokkiyanthram. Even though Nivin’s character will have a few similarities to Dineshan of the yesteryear movie, there are no other likenesses,” clarifies the actor-turned-filmmaker, who has also scripted the movie.

Dhyan says, “It’s a romcom and will also have all the elements promised in the title.” The team is planning to start the shoot of the film in October with Chennai and Alappuzha being the main locations.
