Suriya announces that he is dropping out of Gautham Menon’s movie

Actor Suriya has made open announcement that he is dropping out of Gautham Menon’s ‘Dhuruva Natchathiram’. 

 Suriya said: -

‘The last June, 2012, I got committed to movie directed and produced by Gautham Menon. 

I waited for six months to get the full story from Gautham Menon, and I cannot wait any further.  So, I am dropping out of the movie by Gautham Menon.’ 

Director Gautham Menon would not have dreamt that he would meet with such a plight.  Actor Suriya was waiting for chance to retain good name he earned out of movie ‘Nanda’.  Gautham Menon gave Suriya the star status through ‘Kakka Kakka’. 
Then, in ‘Vaaranam Aayiram’, Suriya appeared in several getups as naughty school student, guy with six packs, a drug addict, and a majestic soldier.  Through the movie, he earned name and fame equaling the name and fame earned through ten movies. 

But now, situation is in stark contrast.  Actor Suriya has openly stated that he would not do movie by Gautham Menon. 

‘Based on my cine experience, I stick to principle that I should do the movie only if I like the story.  As an actor, my duty is to satisfy fans. 

I conveyed my principle to Gautham Menon, and I took up the movie only after he nodded in assent.  That was the agreement between us two.  But, even after one year of signing agreement, Gautham Menon has not given me the full story in a satisfactory manner. 

After completion of ‘Singam 2’, I waited for six months for story from Gautham Menon. Gautham Menon suggested that pooja be done initially.  Since I maintained a good accord with him, I cooperated.  Gautham Menon said that a test shoot should be conducted to decide change of getups. Although I hesitated, I cooperated out of regard for him. 

 I have been waiting for several months without going for shooting.  I waited for good story from Gautham Menon. It did not happen. 

Previously, Pooja was done for Gautham Menon’s ‘Chennaiyil Oru Mazhai Kalam’. Shooting was held for just one week, and there was no shooting for another eight months. Now, this movie has also met with the same plight. 

I waited for six months, and now I cannot wait anymore.  I feel that there is difference of opinion between us two. 

So, I feel that we cannot work together.  Many people’s contribution is necessary for a movie to be made.  Those movies which I did without confidence have taught me a lesson.

‘I have taken every effort possible to team up with Gautham Menon.  Henceforth, it is not possible to do movie with him.  So, I convey that I am dropping out of Gautham Menon’s movie’ said Suriya.
