Before few years, it was Ajith Kumar who turned down the offer of Gautham Menon.
Apparently, the director is now disappointed as Suriya has done the same thing as well. Yes, Suriya has addressed the media channels about parting ways with Gautham Menon.
The actor in his letter has said, “I have a deep and profound respect for Gautham Menon. But as an actor, I must do some justice to the roles I play.
In fact, I have witnessed failures with the movies that I gave importance to just the directors and not script. People believe and trust my films that it has good contents and I shouldn’t disappoint them.
Before a year, Gautham Menon came to me with a one line and wanted to start the shooting. I was not impressed with the script and we decided to rework on the script. It’s been a year and I waited for him.
Recently, he came up with a request that let us start with the movie Pooja and later go for the shooting. The very next day, he came up with another request on going for a test-shoot.
In spite of respecting his friendship, he never presented me the full script. I would like to make it clear that things will not work out between both of us and I am not doing Gautham Menon project.”
