Silambarasan TR's Maanaadu has got huge expectations among the fans and it is expected to be a very important film in the star actor's filmography. The film features an ensemble star cast that includes the likes of Kalyani Priyadarshan, SJ Suryah, Bharathiraja, SA Chandrasekhar, Vaagai Chandrasekhar, Y Gee Mahendran, Udhayaa, Premgi Amaren, Manoj Bharathriraja, Karunakaran, Anjena Kriti, Mahat Raghavendra, Daniel Annie Pope, Aravind Akash and others. Y Gee Mahendran, has now released an official statement, expressing his thoughts about acting in Maanaadu.

Talking about it, he said, "I got the offer to act in Maanaadu, last year. I have always liked director Venkat Prabhu's movies. Since Venkat and I have travelled in the same path of humour, I agreed to act in Maanaadu. I have been seeing Silambarasan right from his childhood. I acted with him in one of his previous films, Anbanavan Adangadhavan Asaradhavan. I got to share screen space with him only for a very few scenes in that film, but in Maanaadu, I play a character that travels throughout the movie. Though I have a lot of combination scenes with Simbu, I play a character representing SJ Suryah's side.

Our combination scenes will be highly talked about after the movie's release. I cannot reveal more details about my character as there are lots of twists and turns that occur due to my character. Venkat Prabhu gave me the freedom to perform the scenes in my own style and he never interfered in my creative space. This film will stand to be one of the best works of Venkat Prabhu, in terms of screenplay writing. The audience will realize my words when they see the film. I have acted in more than 300 films so far and only a few films have excited me to watch them in theatres. Maanaadu has given me such a feeling.

Maanaadu will be a major turning point in Simbu's career and his performance will be a major highlight. If he selects interesting scripts like Maanaadu in the coming years, he will reach greater heights".

Maanaadu is directed by Venkat Prabhu and produced by Suresh Kamatchi. The film will have music scored by Yuvan Shankar Raja who has a fantastic track record with both, Simbu and Venkat Prabhu. The first single song from Maanaadu is scheduled to release on the Ramzan day and the fans are eagerly looking forward to hearing the song.
