Ace Director Gautham Menon who has delivered some Kollywood gems like Kakkha Kakkha, Minnale and Vettaiyadu Villayadu has been through tough time recently with on screens failures and off-screen financial troubles.
Gautham Menon was into deep trouble when his Dhuruva Natchathiram with Surya was suddenly dropped and the dilemma started piling on when Indian Bank put Gautham Menon’s property on auction. It was this at this stage when Thala Ajith volunteered to help out the director by giving his call sheets. The star actor also personally recommended to the producer A.M.Rathnam that Gautham Menon be paid highest salary of his career to ensure that the director comes out of his financial trouble. Thala then personally made sure that the long time friends Harris Jayaraj and Gautham Menon sorted out their issues and reunite once again in Thala 55.
A leading daily reported that Gautham Menon was left in tears after all Ajith had done for him and according to the daily Gautham Menon’s phone ringtone is Thala Pola Varuma.
