Won't work with Gautham: Suriya

Suriya-starrer Tami thriller “Dhruva Natchathiram” with filmmaker Gautham Vasudev Menon has been officially dropped as Suriya felt that he was taking too much time to tweak the story.

“I only do films if I like the story. I quite liked Gautham’s story, but requested him to tweak it a little. But, I waited for six months and I still waiting. Unfortunately, my wait has ended in futile, therefore I’m pulling out of this project,” said Suriya in a statement.

“This is not the first time I share such an experience with Gautham. In the past, we launched another film called “Chennaiyil Oru Mazhaikaalam”. We shot for a week and then I waited for another eight months before pulling out,” he added.

“I can’t wait any longer as I feel Gautham and I are heading in opposite directions in our ideologies. I don’t think I can work together with him,” Suriya said.

Suriya will start working on Linguswamy project soon, while Gautham is busy shooting for independent film “X” and taking care of his production ventures in Tamil and Telugu.
