Gopi Nainar alias Minjur Gopi is a story writer, who is born and brought up in Chennai. He has worked an assistant director with a few popular directors. He was shot to fame after complaining that “ Vijay” and Samantha Ruth Prabhu starrer “ Kaththi” is his story and it is stolen by “ A R Murugadoss.” When asked about this to Murugadoss, he said that he didn’t know Gopi at all. Gopi also filed a case against Murugadoss for story stealing. But, he withdrew the case, after some time. He also filed a case against Murugadoss for verbally abusing him with reference to his caste.

Gopi also claimed that “ Madras” directed by “Pa. Ranjith” is also scripted by him. Although Gopi ran from pillar to post, in both the appeals, he didn’t get success. Gopi didn’t want to stop there. He wanted to get a strong identity as the director. He scripted a film about water scarcity and started designing the film as a woman-centric. To play the strong female lead role, he approached “Nayantara,” who permitted him to narrate the story.

After hearing the narration, Nayantara is quite impressed with the script and had immediately shared her dates for the film. So, Nayantara is the first heroine, who trusted Gopi and provided him with an opportunity to become a director. The film directed by Gopi is titled as “ Aramm” and Nayantara plays a District Collector. The film has KaakkaMuttai fame Ramesh and Vignesh, Sunu Lakshmi and Ramachandran Durairaj. The film is expected to hit the screens in March 2017.
