A lot is happening between filmmakers Gautham Menon and Karthick Naren who have collaborated for a film titled Naragasooran starring Sundeep Kishan, Arvind Swami and Shriya Saran. Karthick Naren has made allegations that Gautham Menon has misused the funds allocated for the film and he was treated as trash by the filmmaker. Karthick Naren and Gautham Menon have had an ugly spat on social media with both of them accusing each other of wrongdoings. But Gautham Menon put his foot forward and cleared all the air around the controversy involving the two of them and posted a 2 page letter on Twitter clarifying everything. Gautham Menon has also mentioned that Karthick Naren and himself have sorted everything out now and all is good now.

It all started when Karthick Naren randomly posted a tweet hinting that he had trusted someone blindly and was cheated. It was speculated that Karthick was referring to Gautham Menon, producer of Naragasooran, and the two seem to have fallen out. And activities in the last 48 hours on Twitter confirmed that all is not well between Gautham Menon and Karthick Naren.
Gautham Menon shared a video on his Twitter which was about films, IPL and many other entertaining things and referred to tweet made by Karthick Naren made days ago. Gautham Menon wrote – “While some young filmmakers whine about their passion getting butchered instead of growing a pair, here’s a young team that makes an interesting short about girls,women, cricket, CSK and liberation.What a http://connect.So very nicely done!“
Speaking about the whole issue, Karthick Naren told Sify in an interview, “When I signed Naragasooran for Gautham Menon sir, everyone asked to reconsider my decision. But I had immense faith and admiration in Gautham sir and we started the shoot. Though Gautham sir’s Ondraga banner is associated with Naragasooran on paper, he hasn’t invested anything into our project. What really hurt me is that he has gone ahead and borrowed money pledging my film (Naragasooran) and invested in his own films —Dhruva Natchathiram and Enai Noki Paayum Thota. The main issue now is that Gautham sir has to settle the remuneration of Arvind Swamy sir and other actors. Though Arvind sir is sweet enough to dub the film for me, I don’t want to take him to be taken for granted.“
