Suriya and Gautham Menon have worked together for the movies Kakha Kakha and Varanam Aayiram and the duo supposed to team yet again after the director’s Neethane En Pon Vasantham.
However, Suriya backed out of the film and went ahead with Anjaan while Gautham Menon got busy with Silambarasan and Pallavi Subhash film and Thala Ajith’s movie with Anushka as the female lead.
While there has been buzz on Suriya, Gautham’s personal differences, the latter has cleared the air that they are just rumors and they’ll work together soon for a Tamil film. Gautham Menon said that he will work with Suriya when the right script comes.
Actor Surya once again proved his generosity. According to sources, the actor gave back Rs 10 cr to director Goutham Menon, to compensate his withdrawal from Dhuruva Nakshathiram movie.
Actor Suriya has opted out of Tamil thriller “Dhruva Natchathiram”, which was launched a few months back, as he felt that filmmaker Gautham Vasudev Menon was taking too much time to tweak the story.
“I only do films if I like the story. I quite liked Gautham’s story, but requested him to tweak it a little. But I waited for six months and I still waiting. Unfortunately, my wait has ended in (vain), therefore I’m pulling out of this project,” Suriya said in a statement.
“This is not the first time I have shared such an experience with Gautham. In the past, we launched another film called ‘Chennaiyil Oru Mazhaikaalam’. We shot for a week and then I waited for another eight months before pulling out,” he added.
“Dhruva Natchathiram” was launched in May. Menon had also cast few actors for the film and even shot a few scenes.
“I can’t wait any longer as I feel Gautham and I are heading in opposite directions in our ideologies. I don’t think I can work together with him,” Suriya said.
Now, Suriya will start working on yet-untitled Linguswamy project from November onwards, while Menon is busy shooting his part for upcoming independent film “X”, which features Rajat Kapoor in the lead.
Surya has officially announced his withdrawal from Goutham Menon’s Dhuruva Nakshathiram.
Kollywood top notch star Suriya is known for his funds and charities besides his performances in films.
Latest on it is Suriya has donated Rs. 6 lakhs for Tanker Foundation today [Oct 9] in order to buy a dialysis machine and also inaugurated the center.
“#Suriya inaugurates free dialysis centre in #RVS, Sulur installed by #TankerFoundation today. #Suriya donated 6 lakhs towards purchase of a dialysis machine to #TankerFoundation,” said producer Prabhu SR in his twitter page.
Meanwhile, Suriya hasn’t started any of his new projects after KV Anand directed Maattrraan while he is about to start one film each with Lingusamy and Gautham Menon for now.
According to tinsel town’s grapevine, Tamil superstar Suriya’s next film with director Linguswamy has been titled ‘Rowdy’. Putting to rest rumours about the project being shelved, Suriya recently clarified that the film is ‘very much on’.
Samantha will pair up with Suriya for the first time in Rowdy. Meanwhile, his upcoming film with Gautham Menon starring Trisha and Simran is yet to go on floors.
It is known that after the success of Singam 2, Suriya has not started any of his projects. Though ace directors Gautham Menon and Lingusamy signed Suriya well in advance their scripts are not ready yet. Meanwhile, Suriya is expected to start his next with director AL Vijay.
Vijay is presently busy with the post-production works of his Aug 9th releasing Ilayathalapathy Vijay and Amala Paul starrer Thalaivaa. Close sources reported, “AL Vijay and Suriya had a story discussion for 15 minutes and the star actor seems to be impressed with the story-line. Both are looking forward to working together.”
All the three directors Lingusamy, Gautham Menon and AL Vijay are busy writing the scripts for Suriya. But, viewers have to wait a little to know which film will be Suriya’s next.
