IndiaGlitz [Wednesday, May 07, 2014]

The entire film industry as well as movie buffs are awaiting the release of '49-0' the film in which veteran comedian Goundamani has acted after a gap of three years. With the release time nearing fast, what made Goundamani accept the lead role of '49-0' is the question that stills remains unanswered.

Director Arockiyadas has opened up in a recent interview on how he successfully brought Goundamani on board for his debut project. Arockiyadas has said that when he went to narrate the script to Goundamani he first introduced himself and gave the one-liner. Goundamni expressed his surprise that an assistant of director Gautham Menon has opted for a rural subject for his debut film and started keenly listening to the script Within the first fifteen minutes of the narration, Goundamani interrupted and said 'I will certainly do this film" and listened to the remaining script.

So it is clear that contrary to rumors suggesting that Goundamani was paid a hefty sum to act in '49-0,' it was Arockiyadas's script that has inspired Goundamani to act in this film.  However Arockiyadas said though he does not want to speak about the remuneration part of his lead actor, he revealed that Goundamani has been paid what he deserves. The salary paid to him equates the amount generally paid to top stars.
