A few days back, we had reported about the “creative differences “ between Vikram and his Vedi director Boopathy Pandian.
Now it is confirmed that after a final meeting in Ooty, their differences over the script could not be ironed out.
Mohan Natarajan the producer has quietly dropped the project on Vikram’s advice and has now taken Madrasapattinam Vijay as the new director. A few days earlier, Vikram had seen Vijay’s period film and was very impressed by it and had a meeting with him.
Vijay had narrated a “human interest family drama” to Vikram. The hottest director in town will now give finishing touches to the script, sitting in a luxury resort near Allapuzha in Kerala. The shoot of the new film will start before the end of the month.
Meanwhile Boopathy Pandian has started script work on his next project Pattathu Yanai with Vishal as hero for GK productions. The shoot of the film is slated to start on November 4 in Chennai, after Vishal completes his Avan Ivan.
