Gautham Menon Reveals Why Suriya Was The First Choice For His Short Film In Navarasa

Director Gautham Menon is directing a short film titled Guitar Kambi Mele Nindury for Netflix's anthology titled Navarasa. His film showcases the emotion of love and features Suriya and Pragya Rose Martin in lead roles. While Suriya will play the role of Kamal, Pragya will be seen as Nethra. This film marks the reunion of Suriya and Gautham Vasudev Menon after their fallout several years ago. In a statement, Gautham said that Suriya was his first choice to play the lead role. He said, "Suriya was my first choice for this character and I don't see anybody else playing this. I have been waiting to work with him for a very long time. This film was the best opportunity and it worked out very well.”

 
Explaining Pragya's character Nethra, Gautham said, "Nethra comes like a breath of fresh air in Kamal’s life. She speaks in a way that creates a lasting impression in our minds. Pragya Rose Martin has performed the character in an edgy way. The way she talks, the way she looks, the way she plays with her hair, these traits are not physical. It's all in her mind. The way she talks about music and connects with the characters is amazing. I am looking forward to seeing how it turns out.”
