Gautham Menon from 'Who is Thala?' to 'Ajith has good heart'
Thirty days of canning for Simbu’s movie is already accomplished and work on Ajith’s film is already on and the project will go on floors on the 24th of February 2014.
There was a time before few years, when we heard this harsh statement from Gautham Menon for a leading newspaper – “I don’t want to work with the ones, who don’t have their heads firmly fixed over their shoulders.”
And again, when the filmmaker was there to attend a college culturals, the students fondly asked him, “When are you going to work with Thala?” to which he replied, “Who is Thala?”
When everything was going clean and steady for this filmmaker, an unexpected series of bizarre came through the flop of Neethaane En Ponvasantham followed by few legal issues that completely broke him. Adding more to these pathetic scenarios was a leading actor suddenly parting ways with the filmmaker on the spur of moment. Finally, he was solaced with Ajith Kumar’s sudden offer.
In a recent interview, Gautham said, “Ajith had lined up three leading directors for a project to work with soon after the release of ‘Veeram’. And I was not there in that list. But he came up with a good heart and offered “Gautham, come up with a fresh script and let us change the situation…”
While speaking about Ajith, the Vaaranam Aayiram director states, “Ajith has helped me big time. He knew I was passing through tough times and just told me to ready a fresh script and encouraged that we can change everything into a positive mode.” Fairly touched by Ajith, Gautham declare that the character of Ajith lies in the fact that he would never point to or give signals that he is helping you but one will feel the love of his kindness. This Gautham Menon project with Ajith will have Anushka in the lead. We hope the team the very excellent!
