Gautham Menon's mega-budget films Yohan: Adhyayam Ondru seems to be put on the back burner. The filmmaker and the actor have reportedly decided to work on different projects before teaming up for the first time.
Grapevine has it that Gautham Menon, who is currently busy with Neethaane En Ponvasantham, is likely to start Surya's long-awaited Thuppariyum Anandhan, a detective-thriller, soon after the completion of Jeeva-Samantha starrer movie. On the other end, Vijay is currently filming AR Murugadoss' Thuppakki and he is expected to start his next with AL Vijay. However, the reason for the unexpected-delay of Yohan is yet to be revealed.
Earlier, the makers of Yohan had claimed that the movie was the first of its kind (in South India) action thriller, centring around a character that will be featured in a series of films (prequels and sequels). The film will be shot in international locations, predominantly in the United Kingdom with the active support of UK government.
On the other end, Vijay had said "I am very excited about this project. Gautham and I have been talking about working together for a while and I'm glad that it's finally materialized. Yohan is a totally new space for me and I'm sure my fans will love this action-thriller film. I am also excited about working with Photon Kathaas and Eros and am sure we will together create a landmark South Indian film."
