Post-Vinnaithaandi Varuvaaya, filmmaker Gautham Vasudev Menon has been facing flops one after the other. First it was the Nadunissi Naigal followed by the Hindi version of VTV titled 'Ek Deewana Tha'. With all these films turning out to be a box office disaster, the director had narrated a script to Ajith Kumar that was loosely based on famous 'Sherlock Holmes'. Tentatively titled as 'Thuppariyum Anand', the actor rejected the offer and later Gautham Menon decided to make 'Dhruva Natchathiram' with Suriya.

The actor expressing his gratitude for the filmmaker, who gave him a remarkable movie 'Kaakha Kaakha' proceeded with a nod to work on this project. The first look posters had indeed created a tremendous response and on the spur of moment, we hear it from the horse's mouth - Suriya himself that he is stepping out of the project.

The actor in his official letter to all media channels has said that he had entered into an agreement with Gautham Menon in June 2012 for a project. He awaited the complete script much alike other actors, but he has got till now is an incomplete version and no detailed structure. "I showed my cooperation towards the director by supporting him in Pooja and test shoot, but till now I am very vague of his ideas. It's been six months I completed Singam II and am still awaiting the script. At this juncture, I have no options but to drop this project."

As an actor, Suriya believes that script is the first element that will offer complete nourishment to the scripts. He doesn't miss to add that Gautham Menon had earlier shot 'Chennaiyil Oru Mazhaikaalam' that was shot only for ten days and later dropped.

It is not Suriya alone, many actors have rejected his scripts due to the same issues. In an interview, young superstar Silambarasan had jocularly mentioned that Gautham Menon would never narrate the complete script to his actors, which he must change.

There is a strong buzz that Gautham Menon had approached Amitabh Bachchan for the Hindi remake of 'Vettaiyaadu Vilaiyaadu' and was turned down literally. The Bollywood production house was disappointed with 'Ek Deewana Tha' and dropped the Hindi version of 'Neethaane En Ponvasantham' halfway the shooting.
