Suriya’s next with Gautham Vasudev Menon begins!
12 years after the release of the National award winning film ‘Vaaranam Aayiram’, Suriya and director Gautham Menon are coming together once again. It is for a segment in the upcoming anthology ‘Navarasa’ that will be streaming in Netflix. Shoot has started and PC Sreeram is cranking the camera. The veteran has tweeted,
Shooting for @menongautham – it’s a web film starring Suriya. @Suriya_offl . Great energy on sets today!
It is worth a mention that PC Sreeram was also the DOP in Gautham Menon’s most recent work ‘Avarum Naanum/Avalum Naanum’, a short film in Amazon Prime’s anthology ‘Putham Pudhu Kaalai’.
‘Navarasa’ is an ambitious project that is being made for the welfare of the Tamil film industry members whose livelihood got severely hit by the pandemic. Several big names are collaborating for this project, which is a compilation of 9 films. Gautham Menon, Karthik Subbaraj, Karthick Naren, KV Anand, Ponram, Rathindran Prasad, Arvind Swami, Bejoy Nambiar and Halitha Shameem are directing a segment each.
The anthology is said to be based on Navarasas, the 9 human emotions, and each film will be based on one particular emotion. Arvind Swami, Vijay Sethupathi, Revathy, Nithya Menen, Parvathy Thiruvoth, Siddharth, Aishwarya Rajesh, Poorna, Rythvika, Prakash Raj, Gautham Karthik, Bonny Simha, Vikranth, Ashok Selvan and many others are part of the cast. All of them are contributing towards the film without remuneration, with only the costs of production being associated.
In Gautham Menon’s film, Suriya will be seen sporting a new look. During the lockdown days, he hadn’t cut his hair and let it grow loose. Impressed by the look, the director had asked Suriya to retain it for the film. More details are awaited.
