Director Gautham Menon and actor Suriya were formidable combo in the film industry having worked together in Kaakha Kaakha and Vaaranam Aayiram, both of which were hits. However, they had a fall out after Suriya decided to walk out of Gautham Menon’s directorial Dhruva Natchathiram.
They had some creative differences over this project and Suriya decided to pen an open letter about why he decided to quit. This broke the friendship bond between the two and they never worked together again. However, later, in an interview, Suriya regretted about the open letter incident which paved way for both of them patching up.
In a recent interview, Gautham Menon has said he would certainly work with Suriya in the near future. This is certainly big news for both their fans.
Currently, Gautham Menon is associated with two directorial – Enai Noki Paayum Thotta and Dhruva Natchathiram. While Dhanush plays the lead role in the former, it is Vikram in the latter.
In Enai Nokki Paayum Thotta, Dhanush plays the lead role with Megha Akash as his lead pair. The film also has the Baahubali star Rana Daggubati doing a cameo.
In Dhurva Natchathiram, Vikram is the hero with the star cast including Aishwarya Rajesh, Ritu Varma, R Parthiepan, Vinayakan, Simran, Suresh Chandra Menon, Raadhika, Vamsi Krishna, Salim Baig, Sathish Krishnan, Munna Simon, Maya S Krishnan, Dhivyadharshini, Preethi Nedumaran and Shravanthi Sainath. Harris Jayaraj is composing music for this flick with Manoj Paramahamsa wielding the camera and Praveen Antony editing it.
It may be mentioned here that Gautham Menon and music composer Harris Jayaraj did have a fall out during the making of Vaaranam Aayriam but they later patched up and have been working together since then.
Suriya is currently busy with the Selvaraghavan directorial NGK and has also inked deals to work with directors Hari and Vikram Kumar of 24 fame in the near future. Produced by SR Prakashbabu and SR Prabhu under the banner Dream Warrior Pictures, it is being made on a huge budget. The film has Suriya playing the lead role with Rakul Preet Singh and Sai Pallavi as his leading ladies. Tollywood actor Jagapati Babu has been roped in to play the baddie in this flick.
