Speaking on ‘Kettavan‘, Simbu‘s pet project, he spilled the beans on why the project delayed and his plans for a sequel on ‘Manmathan‘ as well. He expressed that the script has undergone changes and that he is also planning to do another project, a sequel to ‘Manmathan‘ apart from ‘Kettavan‘!
“Kettavan will be launched soon with a scintillating fresh script and screenplay. Initially we dropped the movie as I felt the script wasn’t apt. But with the new script on, I am sure it will be fascinating and I will ensure that I will do justice to the movie. I am also working on a script which will be apt as Manmathan part 2! It will make you fall in love soon!” expressed a visibly excited Simbu to his fans.
Although ‘Kettavan‘ went on floors right after ‘Vallavan‘, and various scenes were canned, Simbu shelved the project as he felt the script wasn’t apt for the audience. His fans were quite enthralled as Simbu now expressed that he has reworked the script, while his initial script showcased the negative shades of women in the society, the current one has a positive approach.
He also expressed that he will do a sequel to his blockbuster ‘Manmathan‘. When quizzed why, pat came the reply, “Out of ten questions that my fans ask, eight are always about Kettavan or Manmathan 2. I want to pay heed to my fans’ needs.”
I am confident: Simbu
“It is the confidence I and my fans have on me that brought me to this level. It is with that same confidence I would like to say that Vettai Mannan would rock the box-office, as it is a stylish action entertainer which would be new to the audience,” says Simbu.
The film which has Simbu and Jai in lead roles is nearing completion. “It is a gangster movie. But it is being made in a stylish manner. One would get to see a new Simbu in this film. I am thoroughly concentrating on every aspect of Vettai Mannan,” he says.
Stating that it was his wish to try his hands at varied roles, Simbu says, “I played the role of an innocent Brahmin boy and a rough villager in Silambattam. Then for Vinnaithandi Varuvaya I became Karthik, a suave modern youngster. And in Vettai Mannan, I am a gangster.”
On ‘Osthi‘, his other film, Simbu says, “I was awestruck when I watched Dabangg. Immediately I decided that I should act in its Tamil remake. Thankfully things fell in place in a perfect way and Dharani is giving his best to the film. It will be a super commercial entertainer.”
