Dhanush starrer Enai Noki Paayum Thota directed by Gautham Vasudev Menon went into production in 2016 and was initially slated to release for Valentine's Day in 2017 and later for Deepavali 2018 but the film failed to hit the screens due to several issues.
A year later, the project was again scheduled to hit the screens last month, but at the last minute once again the release was pushed due to some financial problems involving its producer.
It was recently announced that the distribution rights of Enai Noki Paayum Thota have been acquired by Isari Ganesh under the banner of Vels Films International. Gautham announced it on social media, sharing a new poster and the film which says that the film will hit the screens on 29 November.
On the other hand, Gautham Menon is currently shooting for another project Joshua: Imai Pol Khaaka with actor Varun of Puppy fame in the lead role, who is Ishari K Ganesh's nephew, who is also bankrolling the film.
In an interview with Cinema Vikatan, Ishari Ganesh confirmed that Gautham Menon would be collaborating with his banner Vels Films International for three projects apart from Joshua:Imai Pol Khaaka. In which one would be a women-centric subject and another two which will star big heroes are under discussion.
He had also confirmed that the shooting of Joshua would be wrapped up very soon.
It might be noted that initially, it was rumored that the film is an adaptation of Yohan: Adhyayam Ondru that Gautham was supposed to make with Vijay in 2012. But refuting rumors Gautham said it is not Yohan but an equally big idea that needed a big producer.
The director also confirmed that long-pending project Vikram starrer Dhruva Natchathiram has been under post-production for the last 60 days and that it will also release soon.
Gautham recently completed shooting the first season of Queen, a biopic web series on the rise of J Jayalalithaa for MXPlayer. Ramya Krishnan plays Jayalalithaa in the series which has been co-directed by Kidaari fame Prasath Murugesan.
