Director Venkat Prabhu, who is waiting for the release of ‘Party’ and has started pre-production works of ‘Maanaadu’, which has STR in the lead, has pinned big hopes on the movie.
Greeting Simbu on his birthday, the ‘Chennai 28’ and Mankatha maker said, “A very happy birthday to a friend!! A brother!!! A good hearted human being!! #str #simbu #maanaadu will be a milestone in our careers!!! God bless #hbdstr.”
Simbu’s ‘Vantha Raajavathaan Varuven’ hit the screens last week and evoked mixed reactions from fans, audience and critics. The movie directed by Sundar C was a remake of Tollywood hit ‘Attarintiki Daredi’ and was bankrolled by Lyca Productions.
Besides ‘Maanaadu’, Simbu has in his kitty three films with director-politician Seeman and Mani Ratnam’s adaptation of Kalki’s legendary novel ‘Ponniyin Selvan’. He is also said to be playing a key role in Kamal Haasan’s ‘Indian 2’ directed by Shankar.
