Dhanush and Simbu together in a film?

The Kollywood grapevine has been abuzz that Dhanush and STR are going to do a film together. The rumours started after both bonded last year in Dubai during SIIMA awards and flew back together.

Later STR threw a big birthday bash for his dear friend, and started hanging out together at popular joints in Chennai and Hyderabad.

Now the latest rumour is that Dhanush and Simbu are going to do the remake of CV Sridhar's 1978 romantic musical entertainer Ilamai Oonjal Adukirathu which featured Rajinikanth and Kamal Haasan along with Sripriya and had great music by Ilayaraja.

In the remake of Sridhar's romantic classic Dhanush is supposed to do Rajinikanth's role while Simbu will do Kamal Haasan's character. And to make it more imaginative, rumour mills say that Shruthi Haasan will play Sripriya's role !

As per our sources, Dhanush and STR are not even aware about the project and dismissed it as " fertile imagination of some fans and journalists." At the moment both the actors have no dates to spare for the next one year.

Dhanush and Silambarasan, the one-time media created rivals, seem to be coming together again. In the recent months, there were rumours of this duo teaming up for the first time, and now it appears like they are joining hands in the remake of Rajinikanth and Kamal Hassan starrer hit film Ilamai Oonjal Aadukirathu.

Grapevine has it that Dhanush would be doing the role played by his father-in-law and superstar Rajinikanth, and Silambarasan is stepping into the shoes of Kamal Hassan. It is also rumoured that Shruti Hassan will reprise the role played by Sripriya in the original.

However, nothing has been finalised yet and both the actors have not opened up on the project. Currently, they are busy with their respective projects and it is only after the completion of those films, they could be taking up the remake of Ilamai Oonjal Aadukirathu.

Well, it is interesting to note that till last year, Dhanush and Silambarasan were not seen together much at public platforms. But all of a sudden, they bonded well in Dubai during SIIMA awards. Later, Simbu invited the 'Kolaveri di...' hitmaker for his birthday bash, thereby putting an end to all the speculations related to their rivalry.

Ilamai Oonjal Aadukirathu was a romantic film directed by CV Sridhar. The film also starred Jayachitra and had Ilaiyaraaja's music.
