Gowtham Menon is often known for parting ways with his technicians and actors. Nearly a year back, the filmmaker avoided working with Harris Jayaraj due to some creative difference of opinions and signed A.R. Rahman for all his projects that includes ‘Vinnaithaandi Varuvaaya’ and its Hindi remake and ‘Thuppariyum Anand’.
Having waited nearly for a period of 5 years, Gowtham finally confessed that he would never work with Ajith Kumar in the near future. It all happened when Ajith Kumar kept insisting on some changes in his script of ‘Thuppariyum Anand’. Now we hear that it will be Suriya replacing Ajith in the lead role.
It has been a known fact that Gowtham signs his actresses for at least a couple of films. For example, Jyothika (Vettaiyaadu Vilayaadu, Kaakha Kaakha and Pacchaikili Muthucharam), Sameera Reddy (Vaaranam Aayiram and upcoming release Nadunisi Naigal), Samantha (Ye Maaya Chesavo and upcoming bilingual movie with Rana Daggubati) and Trisha (Chennaiyil Oru Mazhaikalam and Vinnaithaandi Varuvaaya). After these actresses, Gowtham Menon has now being inked in a deal with Amy Jackson.
The British model made her debut in Tamil film industry with the film ‘Madharasapattinam’ and was signed for his next film Thuppariyum Anand. But now, Amy feels lucky for having been roped for the Hindi remake of ‘Vinnaithaandi Varuvaaya’. The film produced by Gowtham Menon in collaboration with 20th Fox Century features Prateik Babbar in the lead role and Trisha was supposed to repeat her ‘Jessie’ role in this version as well.
The film was supposed to go on floors by the first week of October but is now being postponed to November. Since Trisha has already signed a couple of South Indian projects – Ajith Kumar’s Mankatha and Pawan Kalyan’s Kushiga (remake of Hindi blockbuster Love Aaj Kal), she has walked out of the project due to call sheet issues. Apparently, Gowtham Menon has now chosen the most beautiful British actress Amy Jackson to play the female lead role opposite Prateik Babbar.
