Nivin Pauly and Vikram to team up for Gautham Menon movie
Director Gautham Menon has been in the news for sometime now. There were many speculations about his upcoming projects. The director himself disclosed about a multistarrer titled Ondraga with 4 big stars from the South Indian film industry. After that he revealed about his plans to direct a movie each with Vikram and Nivin Pauly. Vikram was said to play the lead in Dhruva Natchathiram, a project which was shelved after starting with Suriya. But now we hear that the director has got something exciting in store for the audience.
If reports coming in are to be believed, Nivin Pauly will play a dual role in the director’s next with Chiyaan Vikram playing the baddie. This is certainly an interesting casting because both the actors enjoy huge popularity in the Southern states. So the movie has got great potential to widen the market to a wider audience.
Gautham Menon has always been vocal about the idea of expanding the market by bringing in stars form other industries together. He has constantly stressed the need for multistarrers like those in Bollywood, that will enhance the business possibilities of movies.
Apart from that, it will be amazing to watch two stars like Nivin Pauly and Vikram locking horns with each other. The director has always had a penchant for having terrific villain characters in his movies- remember Victor from Yennai Arindhaal, Ilamaran from Vettaiyadu Vilayadu and Pandya from Kaakha Kaakha. So when Vikram comes on board to play a baddie, we can be assured that Gautham Menon has sketched a powerful role.
There is still no official confirmation from the team regarding the news. Gautham Menon is currently busy with his next movie, Enai Nokki Payum Thotta with Dhanush and Megha Akash in the lead. His last release Achcham Yenbadhu Madamaiyada with Simbu in the lead was a moderate success in the box office.
