Maanaadu: Simbu removed from Venkat Prabhu’s Maanaadu
Director Venkat Prabhu and Simbu were supposed to team up for a political thriller titled ‘Maanaadu’. It has been over a year since the project got announced but it is yet to go on floors. Producer Suresh Kamatchi has now informed that Simbu will no more be a part of the film. Apparently, the producer got fed up with the unnecessary delays and postponement of schedules.
Informing his stand on the issue, director Venkat Prabhu has tweeted,
It’s very unfortunate that I couldn’t work with my brother #str in #maanaadu Everything is time bounded. Considering the amount of emotional and financial pressure that the producer is going through, I have to respect the decision taken by the producer. Thnks for all the love!
Venkat Prabhu will now be making the film with a different actor. The makers had earlier announced Kalyani Priyadarshan as the female lead. It now remains to be seen if she is still part of the project. This in not the first time, a Simbu film is getting dropped. Several of his announced films have not seen the light. The actor was last seen shooting for ‘Maha’, the landmark 50th movie of Hansika Motwani. Simbu played an extended cameo as a pilot in the film.
