In a recent interview actor director R. Parthiban has hailed Simbu as a unique and self-made star while reacting to a throwback photo of himself awarding Simbu when he was a child.
Parthiepa also said that he is ready to direct Simbu but the actor has to give him the go-ahead. Simbu has immediately responded and a sent a chocolate bouquet to Parthiban thanking him for his kind words.
Posting a pic of the bouquet from Silambarasan, Parthiepan tweeted that the Manmandhan actor was moved by his recent interview and sent this lovely token of love through his assistant.
Parthiepan added: “I’m also wondering why we haven’t worked together till now? Guess the thunder and rain might strike soon” and hinted at a possible collaboration.
Simbu is gearing up for his new film Maanaadu, which will be directed by his longtime friend Venkat Prabhu of Chennai 28 and Mankatha fame.
In Maanaadu, STR is said to be playing a grey-shaded character like the filmmaker turned director Parthiepan’s role in Swarnamukhi, directed by KS Adhiyaman of Hum Tumhare Hain Sanam fame.
Venkat Prabhu is known for sketching strong grey-shaded characters. In the director’s blockbuster film Mankatha, Ajith’s intense villainy role was widely appreciated and it was also a pleasant surprise that even the haters of the actor loved his performance in the film.
