As if the hurdles he has been already facing over his ‘Ennai Nokki Paayum Thotta’ and other projects are not enough, a fresh trouble has come to haunt Gautham Vasudev Menon.
Deepak, nephew of late Chief Minister J Jayalalithaa, has hit out at the director for making a bio-pic on his aunt without the family’s permission. He was referring to Gautham’s web series ‘Queen’ which has Ramya Krishnan in the lead.
In a statement, Deepak said, “I came to know from few media that director Gautham Vasudev Menon is planning to make a web-series about a political icon titled ‘Queen’ and Ramya Krishnan is playing the lead role.
Director Vijay has met me and has narrated me about his project ‘Thalaivi’ which is a biopic of my aunty Late. Ms.J.Jayalalitha. He has also availed permission from me and has taken a No-objection certificate to start the project.
He has assured to portray the real facts in the movie without defaming my aunty in anyways. In this situation, director Gautham Vasudev Menon has announced about his new web-series project about a political icon.
I am not sure about the political icon whom Gautham Vasudev Menon is mentioning about. I would wish to clear the media that, if any movie or web-series is being pictured about my aunty Late Ms.J.Jayalaithaa without our families permission would be dealt very serious. Hope Gautham Vasudev Menon clears who the Queen he is meaning about.”
