    They say nobody is enemy or a permanent friend in the film industry. It seems to be true in case of Gautham Menon and Surya, who shared warm relationship until recently. The duo, who was supposed to work in Dhruva Natchathiram, shockingly parted ways recently as their planned film was shelved.

    Now, Gautham Menon seems to have finally broken his silence on the issue. According to reports, the director has opened up on the issue in an interview. He has reportedly said that there was no necessity for Surya to go to media over opting out of the movie. Indeed, the Ghajini star could have personally told him. This has hurt the filmmaker.

    Surya announced his disassociation by releasing a press release. "I only do films if I like the story. I quite liked Gautham's story, but requested him to tweak it a little. But I waited for six months and I still waiting. Unfortunately, my wait has ended in (vain), therefore I'm pulling out of this project."

    "This is not the first time I have shared such an experience with Gautham. In the past, we launched another film called Chennaiyil Oru Mazhaikaalam. We shot for a week and then I waited for another eight months before pulling out. I can't wait any longer as I feel Gautham and I are heading in opposite directions in our ideologies," he added.
