Reports say that Gautham Karthik might not play the lead role in director Prabhu Solomon’s next film. With successive hits in Mynaa and Kumki, Prabhu Solomon‘s reputation had gone up by leaps and bounds and observers were watching his next move to find out whom he would be casting in his next film.
The Kumki director had earlier plans to cast Gautham Karthik as lead in his next venture. But it appears that the director has second thoughts on casting Gautham in his next.
In fact, Prabhu Solomon‘s choice of Gautham as the hero was finalized long before the release of Kadal, Gautham’s debut film as hero in Kollywood. Despite a fresh-faced, bubbly Thulasi Nair pairing up opposite him and the film helmed by ace director Mani Ratnam, Kadal faced outright rejection from the audiences. Gautham’s performance, however, was commended by the critics.
Prabhu Solomon reportedly had other thoughts after the failure of Kadal and is now seriously thinking about introducing a newcomer. It remains to be seen who happens to be the lucky one to play the lead role in the film!
