His detractors may say what they like, but the truth is that interesting times are ahead for Silambarasan aka STR. After a lukewarm Poda Podi last year, the actor is working hard and making sure that he does not make any wrong moves.
STR is currently shooting for Pandiraj directed untitled film and now the big news is that he has signed on the dotted line to do the lead role in Gautham Menon next film which will start rolling from November first week in Chennai.
It’s no secret that STR shares a great rapport with Gautham after their last outing Vinnaithandi Varuvaaya turned into a super hit. And now, insiders and people close to STR say that he has gone out of his way to help Gautham by doling out Tatkal dates.
Remember, Gautham is down in the dumps at the moment after his aborted Suriya’s Dhruva Nakshthram fiasco. In a way, STR is bailing him out as the film is produced by Gautham’s Photon Kathas. The film will be quickie as Gautham wants to complete it in six months and then move over to Ajith project.
The untitled action entertainer will have music by AR Rahman and cinematography is by Marc Koninckx , the French cameraman who did Maryan. The buzz is that Gautham has reworked the Suriya script for STR and all technicians had been signed for the earlier project.
