Reason behind Simbu’s visits to temples

Simbu was spotted in Tirupati temple as well as the Madurai Meenachi Amman temple in the recent days.

It is said the actor has developed immense interest in spirituality lately which is why he is visiting temples back to back.

His friend Hariharan Gajendran tweeted, “Divine blessings for #SilambarasanTR at Madurai #MeenakshiAmman Temple. Everything will happen at the given divine time.”

Simbu during the lockdown days has concentrated on getting back in shape and he is said to have reduced from over a 100 Kgs to the mid 70 range. He has also undergone ayurvedic therapy to rid his body of toxins in Kerala which has brought about a glow to his skin as well.

Besides Maanadu directed by Venkat Prabhu, Simbu also has a film by Suseenthiran on cards. Actress Niddhi Agerwal is said to be playing as the female lead opposite Simbu in the Suseenthiran directorial, and the film shooting is planned to be completed in 30 days.

Other than Simbu, Maanaadu has an ensemble of star cast including SJ Suryah, Premgi Amaren, SA Chandrasekar, Bharathiraja, Manoj Bharathiraja, Tamil Bigg Boss 2 fame Daniel Annie Pope. Kalyani Priyadarshan will be seen playing the female lead in the Venkat Prabhu directorial.

The film has music by Yuvan Shankar Raja. Reports suggest that Maanaadu will be a political satire. It was reported that Simbu will be joining hands with Kamal Haasan for the remake of Sigappu Rojakkal. However, an official update about this is yet to be made.
