It is reported that Kollywood director Gautham Menon has roped in Jayam Ravi as the hero for his next film ‘Dhruva Natchathiram.’ Suriya, who was first approached by Menon for this film, rejected as the content of the film couldn’t please the hero. Now, Jayam Ravi has replaced Suriya for the film.
2015 has been the best year in Jayam Ravi’s career. ‘Thani Oruvan’ has become the first major hit in this heroes career, though there were others films of his which did well as the box-office they all were remakes. ‘Thani Oruvan’ that was directed by Ravi’s brother M. Raja was received well across Tamil Nadu and stood as one of the highest collections this year.
Post ‘Thani Oruvan’ Ravi has been approached by many Kollywood directors to cast him in his film. With offers pounding upon him, Ravi is choosing films carefully. In the process, he accepted to act in films like Miruthan and Bhooloham. Now additional to this, Menon’s ‘Dhruva Natchathiram’ is accepted by Ravi.
In past rumours spoke that Menon approached Vijay with this film script, but couldn’t convince the star hero. Later on, he approached his best friend, Suriya. Suriya too didn’t show much interest in the script. With these two heroes disagreeing to the film, the director spoke with Jayam Ravi and narrated the whole script. Impressed with the story, Ravi gave bulk dates for this film shooting.
Dhruva Natchathiram could begin from next summer.
