Silambarasan cut a huge cake and celebrated his 26th birthday (February 3) among his fans at the Devar Kalyana Mandapam in Chennai.
Simbu was tensed as he had made a very crucial decision early in the morning to walk out of KV Anand’s Ko!! Simbu was to fly to China on the night of February 6 along with the rest of the Ko crew to start with a song picurisation for the film.
It seems Simbu and Anand had difference of opinion over the script and heroine of the film Karthika. The actor wanted to replace her as heroine, which Anand refused. The producer AGS Kalpathi Agoharam tried to sort it out but both parties were stubborn.
Finally they shook hands and decided to part amicably without any rancour. Both have decided to keep mum on the issue and refused to speak about it. But Simbu told Sify.com: “ Yes I will not be a part of this film as there were far too many difference of opinion between us right from the beginning. We even did a photo shoot but today I am a relieved man”.
Meanwhile Anand backed by his producer has decided to go ahead with Ko with a new hero and Karthika as heroine. The grapevine has it that Anand has given a narration to Jeeva, who is very happy with the subject and has no issues about Karthika being the heroine. If all goes well, Anand will go ahead with the China shoot as per the schedule.
At the same time, Simbu has not confirmed whether he will be starting his ambitious film Valiban or the Bhoopathy Pandian film first. Adds Simbu: “ I will be doing films for directors like Lingusamy and Venkat Prabhu soon. Right now, I am eagerly waiting for Vinnaithandi Varuvaaya release".
