Simbu likes to be the cynosure wherever he goes. He has some kind of attractive energy towards controversies as well. Hence, it comes as no surprise that he is called controversy’s favourite child. His film with director Sundar C, Vandhaa Rajavaathaan Varuvaen (VRV) got released last week after it was originally slated to be a Pongal release. The film was trashed by the critics. Loyal fans of the actor and director, however, went on to watch the film. Before the release of the film, Simbu had released a video wherein he asked his fans to do paalaabishegam for his cut-outs by bringing in gallons of milk to the theatre. He was taunting those who told that he has just 2-3 fans. This video created a lot of confusion because generally, actors don’t say this openly, although they might enjoy the adulation and fanfare.
Anyways, after a few days, Simbu came out saying that he wanted his fans to give milk to every person who comes to watch his film. It was a kind of entertainment for all those who were following this buffoonery.
Now that his VRV is a box office debacle, Simbu has started work for his next film which will be with director Venkat Prabhu, titled as Maanadu. The flick is touted to be a politics-centric one. The shoot is reported to begin from March. It is also speculated that Simbu has gone to Thailand to lose the extra kilos he has, to become fit and trim.
Raashi Khanna who was seen as Atharvaa’s pair in Imaikka Nodigal is in talks to be the love interest of Simbu in Maanadu. Very soon, one can expect an official confirmation on this.
