The filmmaker has confirmed that he has penned an entirely different script keeping Surya in mind and it will take off in March 2013. According to reports, Thuppariyum Anandhan has put on the back burner and the fate of the movie is sealed.
The untitled project will be an action-romatic film. Other details about the project are under wraps. Meanwhile, Surya, whose Maattrraan was released recently, is busy with Singam 2. There are also rumours that he would be working in a project each with Lingusamy and Sasikumar.
On the other end, Gautham Menon is busy with his forthcoming romantic-musical Neethaane En Ponvasantham. The movie will release on December 14 and the director will concentrate on Surya's project after the release of Jeeva and Samantha starrer film.
However, Thuppariyum Anandhan was earlier offered to Ajith Kumar but the actor, who showed interest in the project in initial stages, lost interest and walked out of the project. Later, Gautham Menon, who had earlier worked with Surya in films like Kaakha Kaakha and Vaaranam Aayiram, shared his unhappiness over Thala and replaced him with the Ghajini star.
