Menon's Hindi version of Neethaane En
Ponvasantham (NEP) seems to be on the back
burner. Well, the poor performance of his Ekk Deewana Tha,
the Hindi version of Tamil film Vinnaithaandi Varuvaayaa,
at the Box Office has made the Bollywood production house to put
the Hindi movie on hold.
Rumours are rife that the issues started arising after Ekk
Deewana Tha turned out to be a damp squib. The production
house cautiously decided to temporarily shelve the project. As a
result, Gautham Menon started looking out for another production
house to invest the money on his prestigious film, which was titled
Assi Nabbey Poore Sau.
It may be recalled that the three versions of NEP were
started on the same day with Aditya Roy Kapoor starring in Hindi,
Jeeva in Tamil and
Ram, who is now replaced by Nani, in Telugu and Samantha playing
female lead roles in all three languages. It was said that all
three version would hit the screen simultaneously. However, Gautham
Menon has almost completed the Telugu and Tamil versions.
