Clarification from Simbu

Following media reports that director Lingusamy has sacked Silambarasan from his forthcoming venture, the actor has come out with his version and clarified his stance on the whole fiasco.
According to Silambarasan, he was signed up by director Lingusamy's Tirupathi Brothers to do a film with director Bhoopathi Pandian. But later the scenario changed and the film was to be produced by Dhayanidhi Alagiri's Cloud Nine with Lingusamy directing it.
“Technically I have not signed any film with Cloud Nine nor have I allotted any dates to them. Dhayanidhi Alagiri is my close friend and we share a great rapport. Lingusamy has not been able to narrate the script to me till date nor tell me the exact dates that he wants. I waited for over 100 days in vain for his complete script and then decided to do a quickie 'Vaanam'. I had informed Durai about it, before he left to South Africa for football finals and he promised me that we will start the shoot from September 1″, he said in a statement.
“I was shell shocked to read reports in the media that Lingusamy has sacked me! How can he expect me to wait for more than 100 days without a proper script or dates of shoot? I had told him that I will be free from September 1, after 15 days shoot of 'Podaa Podi' in London which has already been fixed. But he jumped the gun and announces that I have been replaced by another actor! This is totally unprofessional and not done,” he said.
