'Neethaane En Ponvasantham' has not been quite a cherished repertoire for the ace director Gautham Vasudev Menon. Owing to this, producers today are sceptical about funding him for future projects. Adding insult to the injury, actor Suriya has chosen Linguswamy over GVM for his next project. But in all this, Gautham is receiving support from Thirrupathi Brothers, as Linguswamy is ready to produce GVM's next film. As is well known, Thirrupathi Brothers have already acquired the rights of 'Special 26' for the Tamil remake; it would be a smart move by the veteran director, to choose to direct this heist thriller, for a much awaited comeback.
Suriya is in the final stages of shooting 'Singam 2'. After this, he will jump over to his project with Linguswamy, some time next month. He has chosen Linguswamy over Gautham Menon, for the latter's project is not likely to go on the floors until well into 2014.
