Recently, there were reports that Shruti Hassan would be romancing Vijay in Yohan. However, clearing the rumours, Gautham Menon has said that he is not hunting a local talent at all and he wants to rope in an international face.
It may be recalled that Gautham Menon had earlier said Yohan Adhyayam Ondru would be made in the Hollywood standards. He claimed, "Yohan will be made like an international film while still retaining all the elements, especially music, that makes Indian cinema work." The latest development make us believe that the director is doing his best to make Yohan in global standards.
Yohan is the first of its kind (in South India) action thriller centering 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.
