Simbu will not have a release in 2007. His last release was Vallavan, in November 2006 Diwali. Now he has completed the shoot of his Kaalai, which the trade is hoping will hit the screens for Pongal 2008. The boy has an opening and if he plays his cards well, he will become the fastest rising star among the young guns of Kollywood!
This Friday (December 7) Simbu is going to start his new film Silambattam, for the prestigious banner Lakshmi Movie Makers (LMM) for whom it will be their 25th film. It is also going to be the directorial debut of cameraman Saravanan, a buddy of Simbu.
Guess what role Simbu is playing in the film? He is going to don the role of a Apaavi (innocent) 'Poojari' in a temple who due to certain circumstances is forced to take law into his hand!
The shoot of the film will take place in the temple towns of Kumbakonam, Tiruvayur, Tirunelveli, Tenkasi and towns like Vizag, Rajhamundhry, and Hyderabad in Andhra. The star cast will also have Santhanam, Ganja Karuppu, Karnas and music by Dheena.
And the most important aspect in a Simbu film is the heroine. He and director Saravanan are going to introduce Sana Khan a new Mumbai girl.
