Controversial hero Simbu aka STR was last seen on screens in the ace director Maniratnam directorial Chekka Chivantha Vaanam, where he made a strong comeback after the disastrous Anbanavan Asarathavan Adangathavan, playing gangster Ethi, the youngest of gangster brothers.
The movie turned out to be a massive hit grossing more than 90 crores and Simbu proceeded to his next, the Sundar.C directorial "Vandha Rajavathaan Varuven", named after a punch Simbu utters in CCV. Earlier, lyca productions had planned Vandha Rajavathaan Varuven as a pongal release.
However, the movie failed to release on the festival and even the delayed-release never helped the movie as it ended as a disaster. Now, the actor teams up with raashi khanna for 'Maanaadu' and the shooting is yet to begin due to Simbhu's pathetic attitude. The director of the movie now revealed some interesting details about the movie and said raashi khanna will also be essaying the role of a politician and there was a lip-lock between the lead pair which is the crux of the movie. The entire movie is based on politics but it also has ample of entertainment factors.
