Why is STR keeping a low profile? He is not to be seen in party circles and film functions.
Simbu has quietly left Chennai for a month and is in Hyderabad shooting for his Vaalu.
Vaalu is said to be a rollicking romantic comedy directed by debutante director Vijay Chander. It has Silambarasan and Hansika Motwani in the lead along with Santhanam. The film has music by Thaman.
Vaalu unit waited almost a month to get a railway station in Tamil Nadu to shoot for the film. In the film all the drama and action revolves around a railway station as the hero’s father is a railway station master. But Southern Railways could not provide him with a railway station for the shoot.
Finally Simbu, through South Central Railways has managed to get a real railway station near Hyderabad for the shoot of the film. One of the conditions was that the railway station would be given only for a limited time and the unit has to complete all the scenes at the railway station in the schedule.
So the Vaalu unit is going on a war footing shooting at the railway station and all artist including the very busy Santhanam and Hansika have rescheduled their dates to complete the film.
STR will be in Hyderabad till middle of August and he wants to complete theentire talkie portion of the film by then. Vaalu is scheduled to release forDiwali 2012.
