For the past few months, director Gautham Menon has been busy juggling acting and direction projects. He recently received brickbats for being a part of director Mohan G's Rudra Thandavam, which was criticized for its politics. Post Rudhra Thandavam, Gautham Menon signed a lot of films. On November 4,3, director Pa Ranjith shared a poster of the film titled Anbuselvan featuring Gautham Menon. The film is produced by A Vinoth Kumar under the banner Seventy MM Studios. Apart from Pa Ranjith, Vishnu Vishal too released the poster. What went viral was Gautham's shocking response to the poster release.
Director Gautham Menon quote tweeted Pa Ranjith's post and said that he has no idea of Anbuselvan and is in no way related to the project. Later, he posted another tweet in which he said that there can be only one Anbuselvan by tagging Suriya. For the uninitiated, Anbuselvan is Suriya's character in director Gautham Menon's blockbuster film, Kaakha Kaakha. Later in the day, Seventy MM Studios released the footage on their YouTube channel. It features Gautham Menon as a cop and he can be seen interrogating Vivek Prasanna. The producer has now sought Tamil Film Producers Council's help to sort this issue.
