The latest talk in the industry is that the upcoming film Tamilselvanum Thaniyar Anjalum, produced by ace director Gautham Vasudev Menon, is as good as ‘dropped’.
Unconfirmed reports further say that though Jai, who plays the hero in Tamilselvanum Thaniyar Anjalum, has a huge faith in the film’s script, Menon is apprehensive about the film’s showing at the box-office and is said to be looking for an appropriate ‘producer-cum-distributor’ who can take up the film’s production from now onwards so that he (Menon) can remain unruffled by the film’s future at the box-office.
Despite featuring in some super-duper hit films, Jai hasn’t been able to build a ‘star’ status around himself and his stature in the industry is no better than the likes of Vimal and Sivakarthikeyan. These heroes, who are in the next rung after the likes of Dhanush and Simbu, are the safe bets of small and medium-budget producers. Jai, however, takes his own time in deciding as to whether a particular script would suit him or not.
In order to make Menon’s job easier, Jai is said to be approaching some leading producers and distributors as he tries his best to convince them to take up the film’s production and reap the benefits of the same at the box-office. It remains to be seen as to whether Jai succeeds in his efforts made on behalf of Menon.
