Filmmaker Gautham Vasudev Menon, who is basking in the success of latest Tamil-Telugu bilingual Achcham Yenbathu Madamaiyada, is keen to work with Naga Chaitanya in a straight Tamil film.

Chaitanya starred in Gautham’s Ye Maaya Chesave and Saahasam Sagipo Swasaga, the Telugu version of Achcham Yenbathu Madamaiyada.

“He speaks good Tamil and I want to capitalize on it and work with him in a Tamil film. I want to introduce him to the Tamil film industry,” said Menon.

Happy with the response to his latest outing, which is doing extremely well in Tamil despite the demonetisation effect, he said: “The announcement of demonetisation feared us as it came just two nights before the release. Thankfully, it helped us in a way because other films couldn’t release and we had an extended run.”

With a project with Vikram and Suriya in the pipeline, Gautham also has plans for a multi-starrer which will bring together four stars from the four south Indian languages.

“Everything is still in discussion stage. I’m planning to work with leading heroes from Tamil, Telugu, Kannada and Malayalam,” he said.
