Director Gautham Vasudev Menon, is shooting in Pudhuchery.
Don't jump to conclusions, as he is not shooting for his Suriya film, but is doing a segment of the omnibus Project X: The Film, being made by 10 independent filmmakers including Raja Sen, Suparn Verma Rajshree Ojha, Anu Menon and Sudhish Kamath.
As per the original plan, Thiagarajan Kumararaja director of critically acclaimed Aaranya Kaandam was supposed to do one of the short films, but he got busy with another script, so Gautham Menon stepped in.
Film critic Sudhish Kamath, from whom the initial idea of X: The film stemmed out, confirmed the news, saying: "Menon is a great admirer of Kumararaja's work and was more than happy to join our crazy bunch when he learnt that Kumararaja wasn't able to allot the needed time."
So at the moment, Gautham is shooting for this short film and will start his Dhruva Nakshthram in a week's time.
