Surya walks out of Gautham’s project

It’s not-so-good news for the fans of actor Surya. After the release of 'Singam 2', the actor was expected to join hands with director Gautham Menon for 'Dhruva Natchathiram', which might have been their third film together if actor Surya didn’t decide to move out from the project on Thursday. The pooja for 'Dhruva Natchathiram' happened recently and the shoot was carried out for a week. But the project didn’t progress, as Surya wasn’t too happy about the script. Recently Gautham Menon wrote in his microblogging website, “Reworked a script for Surya. Hopefully we’ll start very soon. Lots of writing, lots of scripts in hand now. Here’s to good times ahead.” But in contrary to his tweet, in an official statement to press, the Varanam Aayiram star has confirmed that he wouldn’t be a part of 'Dhruva Natchathiram'.

In the press release, Surya said, “I have very clearly shared my expectations with Mr. Gautham and only after he completely accepted we signed the agreement. However even after a lapse of a year, I am yet to receive a complete script. I did support him despite my hesitation when he wanted to perform the pooja ceremony and the test shoot, out of respect for him as a creator. Even after six months completion of my previous film 'Singam 2', I was anxiously waiting to receive the complete script to my satisfaction. However all I have received so far are only incomplete scripts and few scenes. I am left without any hint of when a full script will ever be ready and delivered.”

Surya added, “To sum up, I would like to mention that all I have been asking is a complete story line and bound script which is only fair to be provided to an actor. It has come to a point where I have lost valuable time and cannot afford to wait any further. Hence with deep sense of pain I have taken the decision to exit the project.” Director Gautham Menon was not available to comment. Sources in the industry say that Surya will now begin to work for director Lingusamy’s project full time.
