Sources say that Gautham Menon is planning to adapt veteran writer and filmmaker Govind Nihalani’s script in Tamil.
Govind Nihalani is the writer of Dhrokaal, the original version of Kamal Haasan’s cult classic film ‘Kuruthipunal’. We hear that Gautham Menon is adapting one of the scripts of Govind for his female-centric film with Anushka Shetty. Vels Films International is likely to bankroll the film which will commence in 2020.
Gautham Menon is currently busy with the release process of his long-awaited ‘Enai Noki Paayum Thotta’ which will hit the screens on November 29 in Tamil and Telugu.
Gautham also has Vikram’s Dhruva Natchathiram and Varun’s Joshua Imai Pol Kaakha in the pipeline. The director is also in talks with Suriya for a possible project.
