Earlier it was Ajith Kumar + Gowtham Vasudeva Menon
Remember the story that waved across the Kollywood, which stated Gautham Vasudev Menon and Ajith are teaming up for a cop story. The story remained just as a story and the project did not take off as rifts cropped up between Gautham Vasudev Menon and Ajith. Now, according to a birdie in the tinsel town, it seems as if Gautham Menon is reviving the project, but in a detective styled manner that will have Surya in the lead role.
Thuppariyum Anandan now with Surya
Gautham Vasudev Menon himself was available for a comment on this fresh news. When asked about this news, he confirmed us that he is going to launch a new project with Surya in the lead. He further added that he has named the movies as Thuppariyum Anandan. When quizzed further about the project, he said that the movie would be a period flick, which would break all the stereotypes that the earlier period flicks have featured. He further told us that the movie would be of contemporary style and would set a new trend in the Tamil cinema industry. When asked about Surya’s recruitment, he said he was lucky to get him again for this flick.
After Vijay Yohan – Surya Thuppariyum Anandan
Gautham Menon is also all set to team up with Vijay for a spy thriller titled Yohan – Adhyayam Ondru. When asked when he would start the shooting of Thuppariyum Anandan, the director told us that the project would roll on the floors early next year, after finishing up Yohan.
When we asked Surya, who is currently shooting for the Maatraan with K V Anand, he too confirmed us that he is all set to pair up with Gautham Vasudev Menon again for Thuppariyum Anandan. He added that people usually expect romance, action and super songs from them. He further went on to say that he is super excited to don the lead role in Thuppariyum Anandan.
For your information, Ulaganayagan Kamal Hassan too subbed this project citing date issues, and finally, it has fallen at Surya’s door steps!
