It was all termed to be a rumor until Gowtham Menon himself confirmed about directing Vijay's film. Director Gowtham Menon laid his hand on `resurgence of Tamil cinema' by making Hollywood-inclined led flicks.
Indeed, he drew more inspiration from Hollywood films `Kaakha Kaakha', `Vetaiyadu Vilayadu' (inspired from `Bone Collector'), `Pacchaikili Muthucharam' (Derailed) and `Vaaranam Aayiram (Tom Hanks starrer `Forrest Gump').
Gowtham Menon was signed to direct Ajith Kumar's film that is produced by Sivaji Productions. But as he failed to deliver the final draft of his script, the offer was withdrawn. At the moment, he is busy shooting for three projects simultaneously- Simbhu-Trisha starrer `Vinnaithandi Varuvaaya', `Chennaiyil Oru Mazhaikalam' and an untitled film featuring his manager and hottie Sameera Reddy in lead roles.
Amidst these busy schedules, Gowtham has confirmed that he will direct Vijay's film very shortly and they've been discussing the script.
