CHENNAI: Filmmaker Gautham Vasudev Menon, who is basking in the success of his latest bilingual film "Achcham Yenbathu Madamaiyada", is all set to revive his highly anticipated Tamil spy thriller "Dhruva Natchathiram" with Vikram.

The project was originally planned with Suriya.

"It's true that Gautham is reviving 'Dhruva Natchathiram' with Vikram. An official announcement can be expected in a week's time. This project is going to be made on an international scale. The makers are currently busy assembling the team," a source close to the filmmaker told IANS.

A spy thriller along the lines of the "Bourne" series, Gautham is also planning to rope in a leading Bollywood star for a crucial role in the film.

"The film will be predominantly shot in the US. Talks have been initiated with a popular Bollywood actor. However, nobody has been finalised yet," he said.

To be produced by Ondraga Entertainment along with another leading production house, the project is tipped to go on the floors from March 2017.

Vikram will commence work on this film after he wraps up his next yet-untitled project with director Vijay Chander.

Interestingly, Gautham and Suriya, who were originally supposed to work together on this project, are planning to reunite soon.
