Vinnai Thaandi Varuvaaya, which
started with a bang and was reportedly
going on at a great pace, has seen
a sudden slackening in proceedings.
The reason reportedly is that director
Gautham Menon doesn’t seem
too keen on getting on with it at
the same pace as the initial stages.
Vinnai Thaandi Varuvaaya is not
being made in Tamil alone, it is
also being reportedly planned in
Telugu with Mahesh Babu in the lead.
However, Mahesh Babu’s dates
are not available for at least a
couple of months and there is no
way that the Telugu version can
begin until his dates are confirmed.
With the same story, Gautham wants
the two films to be completed and
released simultaneously. He seems
to think that any one of them releasing
earlier would affect the chances
of the latter, especially if the
box office results were not favorable.
Added to this is the fact that he
also plans to use Rahman’s
tunes for the Telugu version too.
With the kind of reach that Rahman’s
music has, any one album releasing
ahead of the other will rob all
the novelty off the one following
it. So, weighing his options, Gautham
seems to have decided that Vinnai
Thaandi Varuvaaya need not sprint
to completion as earlier planned.
This seems fine with everyone except
Silambarasan. He has acted in two
get ups in VTV, one of which has
a full grown beard. With film’s
shooting not moving as expected,
he has been left with his beard
in place, unable to take part in
any other shooting.
