Remember it was Gautham Menon who was to be directing Ajith Kumar’s 50th film. But now Ajith will be starring in venkat prabhus Mankatha, At this time real time Mangatha game has started between Ajith and Gautham Menon.
According to Gautham, they were in talks and were planning to kick-start the project. By the time, they were to start the project, Ajith went to England for his first FIA Formula 2 race there by putting the project on hold. After returning from UK, the actor went to discuss about his 50th venture with other Kollywood directors and told Gautham to wait till 2011.
Both of us had been constantly discussing various scripts for past many years. Finally, he assured about kick-starting the film by July. All of sudden, he informed that his next project will be with Venkat Prabhu in which he’ll be one amongst 5 heroes.I was blown out of waters that why such a big hero is acting in a five heroes subject. Then he had asked producer Gemini Manohar to produce a film for him. When they mentioned my name, Ajith refused. Then he has requested Vishnuvardhan and Vijay to do a film for him. When all these were happening I was wondering who I was. He could have told me all these things but he did not tell.
But he has told that he has informed me. There is no truth in this. There is no necessity for me to stand in front of Ajith or wait for him.
“If I have to wait for an actor to do my film it has to be Kamal sir or my good friend Surya. I want to work with people who have their head firm on their shoulder”, a daily quoted Gautham Menon as saying.
