Simbu aka STR is going through a lull in his career and he is in no mood to hit back at his detractors and is consciously keeping away from the media. Someone who hates to mince words spoke to sify.com: “In life you win some you lose some and I don’t see the failure of AAA as a personal failure. I am still the same Simbu with positive outlook in life (smiles)”
Simbu is looking forward to December 6th when the audio of the Santhanam starrer Sakka Podu Podu Raja will be launched. Incidentally Simbu is making his debut as a music director with this film and the big surprise is that his good friend Dhanush will be unveiling the album. Quiz him about this and pat comes the reply: “Yeah Dhanush was magnanimous and obliged when I met him recently and asked him if he can launch my audio”.
Adds Simbu: "Everyone should wait and watch, as I will be speaking my mind at the audio launch. I have not reacted to any of the wrong allegations against me by vested interests but I will be talking to my fans at the audio launch”.
On reports doing the rounds that Simbu is no longer a part of Mani Ratnam film, he smiles: “ “Tell me ,hasn’t this news been floating ever since I agreed to do a film with Mani sir? And so many people are trying hard to get me out? I am not going to comment or react to such news. I will start shooting for Mani sir’s film from January 20th”
