For a couple of days, there is a gossip circling around the Tamil cinema industry, which has come as a surprise shock for many industry insiders. Director Gautham Menon who is known for making stylish and romantic flicks is in talks with actor, director Simbu for more than a week regarding a future project, according to the gossip. The sources close to director Gautham Menon even reveal that the two are planning to start a new project together, which is supposed to be the sequel to the one of mostly spoken modern romantic drama Vinnaithaandi Varuvaayaa!
Vinnaithaandi Varuvaayaa was one of the huge hits a couple of years ago and attracted a separate fan following. Simbu portrayed the lead role called Karthik and Trisha did the role of Jessi. The beautiful chemistry worked between the two actors and both of them became idols for modern day romance after Mani Rathnam’s Alaipaayuthae. It now seems as if director Gautham Menon wants to extend the story of Vinnaithaandi Varuvaayaa with a new script that would be a continuation from where the first edition ended.
The sources reveal more details regarding the sequel’s happening. According to the sources, director Gautham Menon and actor Simbu are meeting together frequently in a popular café for the script decision for a new project. Gautham Menon is right now busy with his Neethaane En Ponvasantham starring Jiiva and Samantha. Simbu is doing movies like Vettai Mannan and Vaalu. Earlier, it seemed actor Surya would do a movie with Gautham Menon, but his dates were not available, and hence, it seems the director has decided to give a go with Simbu.
Sources say that the sequel script is being the primary thing of their discussion, but it also seems as if the two are also seeing for other scripts too. However, if the things fall in place, it seems Gautham Menon would direct Simbu again in the sequel of VTV, which has been tentatively titled as Vinnaithaandi Varuvaen!
