Gautham Menon's Neethaane En Ponvasantham is all set to release in incredible number of screens this Friday (December 14). The movie starring Jeeva and Samantha will be clashing with Prabhu Solomon directorial Kumki, which is the launchpad of Vikram Prabhu, the son of Sivaji Prabhu and the grandson of legendary Sivaji Ganeshan.

The project was officially announced in May 2011 with Telugu actor Ram in the lead. But the actor walked out of the project over some differences with Gautham Menon after a few months. Later, he roped in Jeeva and Samantha, who was signed to star in both Tamil and Telugu versions. However, the casting of the male lead for the Telugu version went for change again, as Gautham roped in Nani to act in Tollywood version Yeto Vellipoyindi Manasu.

The technical team also went through some changes with time, as Gautham Menon's trusted men like cinematographer Manoj Paramahamsa and music director AR Rahman, who were reportedly approached for the film, were not part of Neethaane En Ponvasantham. MS Prabhu was roped in to handle camera but the name of the music director remained suspense till January 2012. It was also said that Gautham and Harris Jayaraj, who had a good rapport before parting ways due to some differences, would bury the hatchet and team up again.
