Gautham Menon has said that Aamir's Hindi movie Taare Zamin Par had a good impact on him. The subject on the social issue motivated him to make such film in Kollywood. As a result, Thanga Meengal is happening, claims the director. When director Ram came with a strong subject, he decided to produce the film without a second thought. As things started falling into place, the filmmaker felt that Ram could do justice to the lead role and convinced him to star in the movie. Sadhana, Sally, Padmapriya, Rohini and others are in the cast.
Meanwhile, Gautham Menon is busy with his forthcoming musical-love story Neethaane En Ponvasantham. Apart from that, he is getting ready for two biggies: Vijay starrer Yohan: Adhyayam Ondru and Surya's Thuppariyum Anand.
