Director Gautham Vasudev Menon has confirmed that his new film with Ajith is all set to go on floors on 15 February.
Gautham is currently working with Silambarasan (aka STR) for an untitled flick that is expected to get wrapped up in three months. He will commence his project with Ajith in February.
Confirming the news, Gautham tweeted, "Very happy to be back at shoot after almost a year of waiting. STR now (day and night) and looking forward to AJITH sir from february 15th."
Last month, it was confirmed that Ajith and Gautham will team up for a film in 2014. The director has now finally come out with a fixed date (15 November) to begin the film.
Ajith is currently busy with his upcoming film "Veeram", which is confirmed for a Pongal release. A small portion of the film is yet to be shot, but post-production work has already begun in full swing. The film will release in January, following which Ajith will commence shooting for the yet-to-be-titled flick with Gautham.
This is the first time that the actor-director duo is teaming up for a film. They had planned to work together a few years ago, but their plans did not materialise.
Gautham was supposed to do a film with Suriya this year. The duo had announced the project, but it did not take off as Suriya opted out of the film saying he did not get the complete script of the subject despite waiting for over a year. The actor had signed up for two films - one with Lingusamy and the other with Gautham. Since he walked out of Gautham's film, he now has only Lingu's project in hand.
