Recently, Hansika had announced that her 50th film has been titled Maha. Touted to be a female-centric film, this action thriller will be directed by debutant UR Jameel. We had already informed you earlier that ex-flames Hansika Motwani and Simbu are all set to be seen on-screen together in Maha and the actress also confirmed the same. Now, in a recent interview to an entertainment portal, the director opened up about Simbu’s role and said it is not going to be just a special appearance. He is said to be playing a crucial role in the film.
UR Jameel said, “I actually had another actor in mind but it was Hansika who referred STR’s name. Later, I also found him to be perfect for the role. Actually, STR plays Hansika’s pair in this film. Reports on him playing an Islamic guy named Sohaib are totally wrong. We are also not shooting his scenes in Istanbul”. He also added, “STR plays a very crucial role in the film. He will be seen for around thirty minutes in the film.” Now, that’s some pretty exciting news for Simbu-Hansika fans!
The pair was last seen together in Vaalu. Reportedly, the team has completed nearly 40% of the shoot. Ghibran is composing the music for the film and Srikanth also plays an important role. Maha, which marks Hansika's 50th film also has Thambi Ramaiah, Karunakaran, Nasser, Jayaprakash and Chaya Singh in supporting roles. Recently, the first look poster of Maha, which had Hansika seated on a throne among sadhus and seen smoking a chillum, was released and faced a lot of controversy.
