Gautham Vasudev Menon has found a replacement for Ram, who opted out of the Telugu version of his trilingual, which is titled ‘Neethane En Ponvasantham’ in Tamil. And it’s not Jiiva, the protagonist of the Tamil version as reported earlier.
Instead, the director will film the Telugu portions with Naani of ‘Ashta Chemma’ fame, who was seen playing a crucial role in ‘Veppam’, a movie produced by Gautham Menon. Impressed by his skills, Gautham has roped in Nani for the project,” sources say.
Aditya Roy Kapur is playing the lead role in the Hindi version of this trilingual love story, while Samantha is the heroine of all the three versions. “It is about an engineering student falling in love with a psychology student. It will be as sweet as Gautham’s earlier love stories,” sources say.
AR Rahman is touted to compose the music for ‘Neethane En Ponvasantham’. Shooting for the film is expected to complete by the beginning of 2012, after which Gautham is scheduled to start ‘Yohan Adhyayam Ondru’, his first movie with Vijay.
