Kattupaya, the maiden venture of director Tharun Gopi
as hero, is expected to go to the floors after the end of the
unlucky Aadi. The recent successes of Sundar C, Cheran and newly
emerged Sasikumar (of Subramanyapuram) have propelled many
young filmmakers like Tharun Gopi to follow them.
Another reason for his self launch as hero is his bitter
experience with Simbu and his father T Rajendar during the release
of Kaalai. This Simbu starrer film has bombed at the Box
Office and the result forced TR to beat him in front of the viewers
in Kamala Theater during the premiere of Kaalai.
According to the director, the script is ready and the shooting
is expected to commence very soon. Rumors are doing the rounds that
K Balachander's Kavithalaya is impressed with the script and has
reportedly considered to join as producer for the film.
Kavithalaya, the co producer of Superstar Rajini's
Kuselan is currently producing films including
Thiruvannamalai and Krishnaleelai with Arjun and
Jeevan in the lead respectively.
