Ace director Gautham Menon has started writing the script of his next film for Sivaji productions with Ajit in the lead. Billed as one of the most exciting projects on the floor, there is a lot of speculation about the storyline of the film. The buzz is that it is based on real life characters and that Ajit plays a deadly gangster in the film tentatively titled Surangani.
Ram Kumar, the producer, and Gautham are tightlipped about the project as they feel it's too early to be talking about it. Surangani is indeed a catchy title although another producer has also registered it. The shooting of this film is scheduled to start in Chennai on November 1 as soon as the script gets ready. Sameera Reddy, who plays the gangster's moll is paired opposite Ajit for the first time. Surangani will have music by Harris Jayaraj and camera is by Nirav Shah, the man who gave us the slick look in Ajit's Billa. The ultimate star has just finished work on Aegan.
