Gautham Menon's much-awaited project with Surya seems to be in trouble, as the director has been dragged to court by none other than his ex-friend R Jayaraman of RS Infotainment. Jayaraman has brought an interim stay on the project claiming that the filmmaker had taken Rs 4.5 crore a couple of years ago to do a film with him but nothing has been materialised till date.
It is well-known that Gautham Menon of Photon Kathas, R Jayaraman of RS Infotainment and P Madan of Escape Artist were good friends at one point of time. But it seems like things did not work out well between Gautham-Jayaram, as the latter has approached the court and brought the stay on Gautham Menon's film with Surya.
According to R Jayaraman, they have signed a deal on 27/11/2008 but now Gautham Menon is planning to do the same on his Photon Kathas. However, the director has been planning to do a film with the Ghajini star after the success of Kaakha Kaakha. But the project has been delayed for one or the other reason. It was earlier said they would be working on Thuppariyum Anand, a detective thriller.
Meanwhile, Surya is busy with his forthcoming Singam 2 and Gautham is yet to announce his next film.
