There was a situation when everyone in the industry claimed that it is the end of Gautham Vasudev Menon’s journey in the industry for his movies like Nadunissi Naaigal and Neethaane En Ponvasantham failed to make a big time in the industry. Moreover with the director pinning all hopes on Suriya’s Dhruva Natchathiram, it all went wrong and project was stalled.
Then he started to work on STR’s Sattrendru Maarudhu Vaanilai, which was later renamed as ‘Achcham Yenbadhu Madamaiyada’. The project couldn’t proceed due to some financial constraints and finally, Yennai Arindhaal starring Ajith Kumar came to the rescue of this filmmaker. Apparently, his recent release ‘Achcham Yenbadhu Madamaiyada’ became yet another super hit spinning 50Crore collection in just 10 days.
Now the filmmaker has lined up quite a stunning bunch of movies, Untitled film with Suriya, produced by Studio Green Films, ‘Dhruva Natchathiram’ with Chiyaan Vikram followed by a multi-starrer film with Jayam Ravi, Prithviraj, Puneeth Rajkumar, Sai Dharam Tej, Anushka Shetty, Manjima Mohan and Tamannaah in lead roles and Telugu movie ‘Pelli Choopulu’ remake, which might happen with Nivin Pauly in lead role. With so many projects lined up, it looks like Gautham Vasudev Menon would definitely core brownie points.
