In the first part of the interview, Gautham Menon had told us about his enriching experience of working with Ajith, about "Yennai Arindhaal" and female leads Anushka Shetty and Trisha.
In the second and final part, he opens up on "Yennai Arindhaal" sequel, his movie with actor Simbu and more. Excerpts from the interview:
Do you have plans for a sequel to "Yennai Arindhaal"?
Every film of mine can possibly have sequels. With the characters in the movies like "Kaakha Kaakha", "Vettaiyaadu Vilaiyaadu" and "Vinnaithaandi Varuvaayaa", I can go and make sequels.
I can take Raghavan's character ("Vettaiyaadu Vilaiyaadu") or Karthik's ("Vinnaithaandi Varuvaayaa") next journey forward with its sequels. Likewise, this character of Satyadev in "Yennai Arindhaal"; at the end of the story, you will realise that there is much more to this character. Lot more episodes can come up with his character.
Can you share any special memory from your forthcoming movie "Yennai Arindhaal"?
I think the journey with "Yennai Arindhaal" team working for so many months itself (is) a special memory. But if you want to ask me to tell on such special thing – the whole team travelled a lot of places like Jodhpur, Udaypur, Sikkim by trains and buses and we had a great time together.
What is the status of Simbu's "Sattendru Maaruthu Vaanilai"?
We shot the movie for 30 days before halting it. We will start work on it once I complete Ajith's "Yennai Arindhal".
What's next after "Sattendru Maaruthu Vaanilai" and "Yennai Arindhaal"?
I haven't planned beyond that. I am in discussion with couple of actors but nothing has been confirmed yet. I can take a call on it once I complete this movie.
