It will be a while before Goutham Menon decides to make a film
in Malayalam but that hasn't stopped the audience in Malayalam from
enjoying his Tamil films. After scoring one big hit after the other
in Tamil, he has now returned to work again with his favorite actor
Surya in a new film. Vaaranam Aayiram (a thousand
elephants) is the name of the new film. This one also will be
Surya's first film after his wedding to Jyothika.
The first schedule of the film will be shot in Afghanistan. This
is probably the first time that a Tamil film is being shot in the
war-ravaged country. Recently, a Hindi film named Kabul
Express starring John Abraham and Arshad Warsi, was shot in
Afghanistan. The crew of Vaaranam Aayiram will then move
to countries like Russia and the USA. The film's heroine hasn't
been finalized yet.
