Dhruva Natchathiram is a long-awaited film directed by Gautam Vasudev Menon that stars Vikram. The film has already made a name for itself as one of the most significant films to be stuck in production hell due to several issues pertaining to finance. The much-anticipated film has announced that its release should be sometime this year. The film’s score has been created by the highly talented Harris Jeyaraj, with the title song, His Name Is John, already released to wide praise. Gautham and Harris are known to be great artistic collaborators who have created phenomenal works like Minnale, Kaakha Kaakha, Vettaiyaadu Vilaiyadu, and Vaaranam Aayiram. This will be the director-music composer’s seventh collaboration together, making fans even more eager to witness the film. The latest update on the film revolves around the controversy surrounding Gautham Menon removing scenes of Aishwarya Rajesh from the film.
On the release of the second single, His Name Is John, Aishwarya’s name had been removed from the cast list, and her portions of the film had been asked to be edited out. There has not been any official update on why Aishwarya has been taken out of the film, only a few speculations from fans. The film has been shot in several international locations, like Slovenia, Bulgaria, Georgia, and the UAE. Fans are eagerly awaiting to see this film, which promises to be of a world-class standard.
The film has a stellar cast of Chiyaan Vikram, Ritu Varma, Simran, R Parthiban, Vinayakan, Arjun Das, Raadhika, and Vamshi Krishna. It is set to be an action spy thriller that follows a New York-based intelligence agent named John, played by the ever-talented Vikram.
