Acto Suriya and director Gautham Menon have begun shooting for their upcoming project. The anthology titled Navarasa has been directed by 9 directors. A few days back, Mani Ratnam and Jayendra Panchapakesan announced Navarasa which will bring together 9 directors for 9 short films. The cinematographer announced the actor-director duo’s upcoming project on Twitter.
Navarasa will be streaming on Netflix and is an attempt to raise funds for industry members who have lost their livelihood during the lockdown. Earlier, Suriya and Gautham Menon worked together for some memorable films such as Kaakha Kaakha and Vaaranam Aayiram. Their film Dhruva Natchathiram did not do well at the box office. This time, the dynamic duo have come together for the short film.
