Two ace directors are fighting over to direct Ghajini star Surya’s next flick. Well, Gautham Menon and N Lingusamy, who are going all out to get green signal for their next film. In the last few months, Surya has been met by Gautham Menon and Lingusamy separately and narrated their stories. Interestingly, the actor has liked both the scripts and have given verbal consent for the proposed projects. Recently, Gautham Menon had confirmed that his next film would star Surya in the lead role and also the project would take off in April. On the other end, Lingusamy has also claimed that he is ready to work with the actor and the film will be starting soon. While Gautham Menon is planning to leave to the US for the location hunt, Lingusamy is giving final touches to the script.
Some in the industry believe that Surya would work on both the projects simultaneously but sources close to the actor deny claiming that the actor is known for sporting different looks with different kind of body language and working for two films at the same time would not let the actor concentrate on one movie. However, it is believed that Surya would start working with Gautham Menon first as the director had made a few memorable films – Kaakha Kaakha and Varanam Aayiram – for the Maattrraan star.
