Actor Surya has walked out of forthcoming Tamil movie Dhruva Natchathiram directed by Gautham Vasudev Menon. The movie was launched a few months back. As the director could not come up with bound script, he has decided to opt out of the movie.

In a press release, Surya claimed, "I only do films if I like the story. I quite liked Gautham's story, but requested him to tweak it a little. But I waited for six months and I still waiting. Unfortunately, my wait has ended in (vain), therefore I'm pulling out of this project."

Surya alleges that Gautham Menon had earlier done the same with Chennaiyil Oru Mazhaikaalam. "This is not the first time I have shared such an experience with Gautham. In the past, we launched another film called Chennaiyil Oru Mazhaikaalam. We shot for a week and then I waited for another eight months before pulling out," he added.

Dhruva Natchathiram was launched in May. Menon had also cast few actors for the film and even shot a few scenes. "I can't wait any longer as I feel Gautham and I are heading in opposite directions in our ideologies," Surya said. Continue reading the story on the slideshow...
