It was recently announced that STR aka Simbu, who was last seen in director Sundar C's Vantha Rajavathaan Varuven, would work in a film for Studio Green under debutante Narthan's direction. He will be sharing screen space with actor Gautham Karthik for the first time through this film.

Keeping this newly announced project aside, Simbu also has Maanaadu in his kitty, the political drama, directed by Venkat Prabhu and produced by Suresh Kamatchi. The VTV actor had recently gone to London to shed weight for his role in Maanaadu. He lost around 13 kilos in a span of 37 days.

He came back to Chennai in a new makeover to attend the wedding of his brother, Kuralarasan. It was revealed that the shooting of this film will start in May 2019. While the project is yet to take off, rumours were rife that VP's father and the multi-talented technician, Gangai Amaran would be seen playing the role of a politician in the film.

However, when we checked with Venkat Prabhu, he vehemently denied such rumours and added that his father is not acting in the film. He also promised that the film's shooting will begin very soon. Kalyani Priyadarshan is signed as the heroine of this project, which is one of the most anticipated films among Simbu fans. Stay tuned.
