Simbu is the Ranbir Kapoor of the South - Gautham Menon
Director Gautham Menon is currently busy with his Simbu film, which has reportedly been titled Sattendru Maarudhu Vaanilai.
But, we hear that there is another film with a similar title which has also been registered. This film has already been censored with a U and been granted tax exemption as well. Will Gautham and team go for a title change? We have to wait and watch. The director meanwhile elaborated on this new film.
“This film doesn’t have anything to do with VTV. It is a proper commercial package with romance, some problems, action and a little message too. After my film with Suriya got shelved, I approached Simbu and offered him two to three scripts. He didn’t even demand a story narration and asked me to just tell him the date and time that he has to report for the shoots. I anyway narrated the story to him and he was mighty impressed and wanted to immediately start filming too. I thank director Pandiraj for allowing Simbu to manage his dates simultaneously for both of our films.
I have been in regular touch with Simbu regarding VTV 2 but this is a different film. He is a great performer and with the right choices, he can be the Ranbir Kapoor of the South.”
Pallavi has been signed on as the female lead. A.R.Rahman, Anthony, Rajeevan and Don MacArthur form a formidable technical crew for this film.
