Director Santhosh P Jayakumar is known for his two adult comedy entertainers such as Hara Hara Mahadevaki and Iruttu Araiyil Murattu Kuthu. Later, he made his third film, Ghajinikanth with Arya and Sayyeshaa, followed by Chikati Gadilo Chithakottudu, the Telugu remake of Iruttu Araiyil Murattu Kuthu. He was signed to do a clean 'U' certified Tamil action thriller for Studio Green.

The film was officially launched, earlier this year and the title of the film was revealed to be Theemai Dhaan Vellum aka Theemai Than Vellum, an interesting title that was coined after the blockbuster song from Thani Oruvan. The technical crew of the film had names like D.Imman (music), Ballu (cinematographer), G.K.Prasanna (editor) and Anbariv (stunt).

Theemai Dhaan Vellum was touted to be an intense action thriller with Gautham Karthik in the lead role, and also without a female lead. However, now it looks like, the film may not happen as planned. Yes, in an unfortunate turn of events, this film is said to have been dropped for reasons unknown. Our close sources hint that Theemai Dhaan Vellum might not happen as planned. But we will have to wait for few more day to know if this speculation is a rumour or true story. 

An official word is awaited from Studio Green on this regard. Gautham Karthik is currently shooting for the rural family entertainer, Chella Pillai, directed by Arun Chandhiran. He is also awaiting the release of Devarattam, which is directed by Muthaiah and produced by Studio Green.
