With Dhanush making a name for himself in Bollywood, it was only inevitable that others follow suit and it seems the one to take the leap of faith is none other than Silambarasan aka Simbu!
The story is by cinematographer turned director Thiru who pitched the story to Simbu, who, according to sources, loved it so much that he immediately green lit the project and now the plan for the duo is to make the flick in Bollywood.
Simbu reportedly feels this would be the perfect launch for him in B-town, and would gain him a strong footing among the audience base who might otherwise not know him from his work in Kollywood.
It is unknown at this point if this project will take off after he finishes Pandiraj’s Idhu Namma Aalu, which has almost wrapped up, or after the Gautham Menon project which has already been subjected to a lot of delays.
Idhu Namma Aalu is a highly anticipated one which stars Simbu along with Nayantara after a long while – 8 years to be exact – and is being produced by his father and veteran actor/film maker T Rajendar. The film also features the debut of his brother Kuralarasan as a composer.
Kuralarasan managed to rope in Yuvan Shankar Raja to sing one song and also scored a tune which will feature the vocal talents of Simbu, T Rajendar and himself.
Supposedly, Nayantara and Simbu buried the hatchet for this one, so to speak, and have been working on very comfortable terms. It was, however, reported that the highly sought after diva did land a huge paycheque for her performance.
Now we wait for further developments on Simbu’s journey to the world of Hindi cinema!
