In a recent interview, Gautham Menon has spoken about Ajith, Yennai Arindhaal, Suriya's Dhruva Natchathiram and much more. When asked why Dhruva Natchathiram was shelved, he has revealed that he did not find enough support from the Vaaranam Aayiram actor to keep the project alive.
Shockingly, he has also revealed that Dhruva
Natchathiram might never happen. When asked if he and Suriya
were interacting with each other, Gautham surprised everyone by
saying no, thereby hinting that he might never work with Suriya
After dishing out two successful films(Kaaka Kaaka and
Vaaranam Aayiram) with Suriya in the lead, Gautham started
his pet project Dhruva Natchathiram when he ran into
trouble. Suriya's lack of support meant the film had to be dropped
which in turn became Gautham's huge set back.
"I didn't have the financial stability and I ended up working
with the wrong people who turned against me and filed all these
crazy cases. And somebody whom I thought was a friend, Suriya, who
completely recognized that I'd be able to pull off something with
the script, didn't actually come forward and give his nod to the
script I wanted him to be in. It(the script) would've been
something very new-age and different," he said.
On questioning with whom he would like to work in the future,
the Yennai Arindhaal director said his wish list
includes Rajinikanth and Amitabh Bachchan. "I'd also like to work
with Kamal sir once again and after having worked with Ajith now,
I'm dying to work with him again." he added.
