The talented director Gautham Menon has a special habit of making a cameo appearance in almost every movie he makes. Sometimes, his roles are so small he could be just a passing face in front of the camera and this fetish of his has led to several speculations about the director taking acting on a serious note.
Sometimes directors appear in a blink and miss appearances just to reveal their penchant for acting, and few directors like Dasari Narayan Rao in Telugu and S.J. Surya in Tamil have taken it to a new level by turning full time actors.
Of late, rumors have been rife that Tamil director Gautham Menon will be playing the antagonist’s role in a Tamil film to be directed by Ajay Gnanamuthu. This interesting news has created an immense buzz among Gautham’s fans across Tamil and Telugu film industries.
However, Ajay Gnanamuthu refuted rumors of Gautham Menon playing the baddie in his film and said they have never approached the director for any such role and quashed all these as baseless rumors.
