He took Twitter to clear the rumours. He wrote, "News about Rajnikanth garu asking me to prepare a story is completely false." Recently, it was said that Rajinikanth had expressed his wish to work with SS Rajamouli and asked him to come up with a good script. His clarification has laid down the speculation to rest. But when his fans asked him about the other rumour, which said that he would direct Surya, he tweeted, "Me and Suriya meet occasionally. Both of us r intrested in workin 2gether. But there r numerous issues 2b finalised b4 a film can be announced (sic)."
His tweet has ensured that there are chances of SS Rajamouli directing Surya in the coming years. It was recently said that the filmmaker was planning to direct Surya after the completion of his next movie starring Prabhas. He had met the Ghajini star recently and discussed about the project. Though it was a casual talk, they opened up on their wish to work with each other. DVV Danayya would be producing the movie and it was likely to take off in late 2013.
