Gautham Menon is a busy man. He is working on Neethane En Ponvasantham with Jiiva and Samantha in the lead and has Yohan: Adhyaayam Ondru and Thuppariyum Anandhan. Meanwhile, he is also producing a film, Thanga Meengal, directed by Katradhu Tamizh fame Ram.
On why he decided to produce the film, he said that Taare Zameen Par inspired him to take up a film on a social issue. “That’s when Ram presented me the beautiful script”, said the director. He also said that it was he who forced Ram to do the central character as Gautham felt that only Ram can understand the complete nuances of the script.
The film stars Ram, Sadhana, Sally, Padmapriya and Rohini. Yuvan Shankar Raja has again collaborated with Ram after Katradhu Thamizh. Arabind Sara is handling the camera and Sreekar Prasad is editing the film.
