Yohan with Vijay dropped - Gautham Menon [Interview]


It is official! After media was working overtime about the much hyped Gautham Menon-Vijay project Yohan — Adhyayam Ondru getting shelved, the prolific filmmaker himself has come out in open and agreed that the film was dropped to Kollyinsider in an exclusive.

In fact Menon had officially announced the project and did a photo shoot with Ilayathalapathy and the film’s musical score credited with A.R.Rahman. He had also gone on record about the film to this newspaper.

“Yohan… is the first of its kind action thriller (in south India) which is centered on a character that will be featured in a series of prequels and sequels.

The movie will be shot in international locations predominately in Britain and will go on floors soon. Few Hollywood actors are also involved.”

Gautham reveals, “Initially, I had given a one-liner to Vijay which he liked. When the script came to a final shape and when I narrated it, Vijay felt he was not cut for the particular story.

Since I didn’t have time to come up with a new script, Vijay requested me if he could move on to director A.L.Vijay’s project which was ready. I simply opted out. That was it!”

Ask him as why it is occurring quiet often with big stars for him, he says, “It just happens in the film industry.

There’s nothing more to it! Vijay and I will work together at a later stage. I am in the final stages of Neethane En Ponvasantham and will figure out my next after that.

It may be with a big actor as well, but I can’t anything more yet.” He also confirmed that Samantha who was on a health sabbatical for almost a month has recovered and joined him for the shooting of the last lap of NEP.

Vijay could not be contacted since he is shooting for Thuppakki in Geneva.
