Arun Vijay to play the lead in Gautham Menon’s next
Director Gautham Menon is currently busy wrapping up the shoot of his highly anticipated Vikram starrer Dhruva Natchathiram. Final leg of shoot for this spy-thriller is progressing in Turkey, which is expected to last for a month. The movie is slated to hit screens by the end of this year.
Meanwhile, certain trustworthy reports suggest that Gautham Menon has roped in actor Arun Vijay to play the lead in his next movie. Incidentally, this will be Arun Vijay’s 25th movie and the actor has been training hard for it. He had recently posted photos and videos of him undergoing rigorous training sessions to acheive a lookwise transformation for this movie.
Arun Vijay’s terrific performance in Gautham Menon’s Yennai Arindhaal (YA) proved to be a game changer for the actor. Post YA, Arun Vijay was signed for some big ticket films in Telugu and Kannada. His last release was Kuttram 23, a cop thriller, which emerged as a big commercial success. He is presently shooting for Baahubali star Prabhas’ Saaho, in which he is playing a prominent part. When Arun Vijay returns back to his favourite director Gautham Menon, expectations are surely on the higher side.
The director, meanwhile is yet to complete works for his long delayed Enai Noki Paayum Thotta, which stars Dhanush and newbie Megha Akash as the leads. Almost 90% of the shoot has been completed and they are expected to wrap it up as soon as Gautham Menon is free from Dhruva Natchathiram.
