Sources say that Gautham Menon is planning to adapt veteran writer and filmmaker Govind Nihalani’s script in Tamil. We are not sure of which film of Govind is he adapting, though. Earlier, Govind’s Drohkaal was remade into Tamil as Kuruthipunal (Drohi in Telugu), starring Kamal Haasan, Arjun, and Gauthami. That was a big hit in Tamil. We hear that Gautham Menon is adapting one of the scripts of Govind for his female-centric film with Anushka Shetty. Vels Films International is likely to bankroll the film which will commence in 2020.
Gautham Menon is currently busy with Dhanush starrer Enai Noki Paayum Thota (Thoota in Telugu), which has struggled a lot for its release. Finally, it has cleared all the hurdles and will be hitting the screens on the 29th of this month. Gautham also has Vikram’s Dhruva Natchathiram and Varun’s Joshua Imai Pol Kaakha in the pipeline. The director is also in talks with Suriya for a possible project.
