If Mohanlal sir is ready, I’ll start shooting immediately: Gautham Menon
Tamil filmmaker Gautham Menon has always been vocal about his wish to work in Malayalam industry. In various stages of his career, the director has had talks with leading stars like the Big Ms, Nivin Pauly and Fahadh Faasil. In a recent interview, when asked about when fans can expect to see his film with Mohanlal, Menon said that he is ready to start shooting the moment the superstar gives the green signal. Few years back, there was a strong buzz about the two teaming up but it never materialized.
A half Malayali by birth, Gautham Menon also revealed that he had met and a discussed a script with Mammootty but it didn’t work out. However, he assured that his maiden Malayalam film is not very far away and if things turn out well, Fahadh Faasil will be playing the lead role in it.
Fahadh and Gautham Menon had recently worked together in ‘Trance’, in which the latter played the villain role. It was Menon’s full length appearance in a Malayalam film.
