Actor Dhanush and filmmaker Gautham Vasudev Menon are coming together for a new Tamil film called Enmel Payyum Thota, work on which is expected to begin in March. “Gautham was to use this title for a project he was supposed to work with Suriya. Since that project fell through, he decided to go ahead and work on the same script with Dhanush with the same title,” said a source close to Menon.

Tipped to be an actioner set against the backdrop of gang wars, the film will be wrapped up in just two months. “Dhanush wants his portion to be completed before he starts working on his Hollywood project. He is expected to start work on this project from March,” the source added. The rest of the cast and crew are yet to be finalised.
