Gautham Menon plans to make a musical love story with Suriya!
Director Gautham Menon is finally coming out of his financial issues and his shelved films are getting back on track. The long delayed ‘Enai Nokki Paayum Thotta’ hit screens last Friday and has opened to mixed response from the viewers. Meanwhile, the filmmaker is also busy discussing multiple other projects. He recently pitched a storyline to Suriya and it sounds very interesting.
Gautham Menon himself revealed this in a recent television interview. It is about two musicians, Kamal and Kadhambari, who both meet in London. How they fall in love out of their common taste for music forms the baseline of the plot. Suriya is yet to give his nod but the director is hopeful that the film will come out well if the star gets on board.
Suriya and Menon have previously worked together in ‘Kaakha Kaakha’ and ‘Vaaranam Aayiram’, both of which were milestone films in their respective careers. They were also supposed to work together in ‘Dhruva Natchathiram’, a spy thriller, but Suriya opted out due to creative differences. Menon later revived the project with Vikram only to be stalled multiple times. The team still has around 60 more days of shoot left.
Gautham Menon currently is on a three-film deal with Vels International, a production house headed by Dr Ishaki K Ganesh. He is presently working on ‘Joshua Imai Pol Naan Kaakka’, an action-thriller that has ‘Puppy’ fame Varun in the lead. A female-centric film with Anushka Shetty is also in the pipeline.
