He wrote, “There’s a small issue between the production company and Big B saab. It is not shelved yet.”
SJ Suryah had shared a message, which was posted on his PR’s Twitter handle. Advertising

Rumour mills are abuzz that the project has been dropped as producer Suresh Kannan and Amitabh Bachchan had some differences of opinion. But SJ Suryah is trying his best to make things smooth. A source close to the unit tells, “The shooting has been postponed due to unknown reasons. 0
Comment(s) While the members of the cast are yet to be officially announced, the makers were in talks with Jyotika and Ramya Krishnan. Uyarndha Manithan was supposed to be produced by Thiruchendur Murugan Productions in association with Five Elements pictures, but eventually Purple Bull International Private Limited and T-Series decided to bankroll it. I will sort it out and take it forward.” The post further confirmed Suryah would fly to Mumbai post-Monster’s release to meet Amitabh Bachchan. The title of the Hindi version of Uyarndha Manithan is The Great Man. Advertising

Speaking at the launch of Uyarndha Manithan, Suryah said Bachchan had given a call sheet of 35 days to complete his portions in a single stretch. Going by the pictures circulating on the Internet, we could sense Big B plays a character based out of the countryside. Bachchan sir already shot for a couple of days, and had a great time.
