Sources say that Ram opted out of the film after his fallout over remuneration with Bellamkonda Suresh, who produced his recent film Kandireega. But some sudden developments made Gautham Menon to make the film on his own.
Ram will be starring in the Telugu version of the film, whereas Jeeva of Rangam fame will enact the same character in Tamil. The shooting of the Kollywood version has recently started and it has been titled Neethaane En Ponvasantham.
The romantic movie features Samantha in the female lead role. The movie has AR Rahman's music, Manoj Paramahamsa's cinematography and Anthony Gonsalvez's editing.
