Gautham Menon to direct Vikram!

Gautham Menon, who is now busier than ever with Thala 55, has his eyes set on Chiyaan Vikram for his next movie, say sources. The hit maker apparently has a story ready and is waiting to finish up his other commitments so they can move ahead with the project.


Vikram just wrapped up Shankar’s Ai, and has started with Vijay Milton’s Pathu Endrathukumeleyey, in which he stars opposite Samantha. This one though is supposed to be a real fast shoot and should conclude in a matter of weeks.

Gautham, on the other hand, will have his hands full completing Silambarasan’s Sattendru Maaruthu Vaanilai which also stars Pallavi Subhash.

And so, give or take a few weeks, the Vikram – Gautham Menon film could launch by the end of 2014!

Now this is a new direction Chiyaan Vikram is taking with his career, as for years now, he has been very picky with his roles and did no more than one film a year. But looks like he has had a change of heart and sources close to him say the actor wants to do at least three flicks a year now.

He has made sort of a tense situation by indirectly rejecting director Dharani’s movie, which he was to do after Ai, by moving straight on to the Vijay Milton flick. But hey, the show must go on and Dharani it seems has moved on to Vishal as the lead in the movie.

But focusing on the bright side here, good projects seem to be piling up for Vikram and as far as the fans go, this move by the actor to be more prolific is certainly glad tidings.

And Gautham Menon? Let’s hope the director doesn’t lose his Midas touch anytime soon as the stars are quite literally lining up for him.
