Daniel Annie Pope has made a name for himself as an actor apart from his stint in Bigg Boss in films namely Polladhavan, Idharkuthane Aasaipattai Balakumara, Maragadha Naanayam, Rangoon, Oru Nalla Naal Paathu Solren, and most recently in Jai’s Jarugandi. Simbu’s Maanaadu has quite a lot of hype already considering filming hasn’t yet begun with production announced by Venkat Prabhu to kick-off this month. With Kalyani Priyadarshan playing the female lead and iconic veteran filmmaker cast in an important role, expectations for the film have been sky-high among fans.
