Simbu, who is currently shooting for ace filmmaker Mani Ratnam’s Chekka Chivantha Vaanam, is likely to team up with director Rathina Shiva of Rekka fame.
Sources say that STR is impressed with Rathina Siva’s script but the project is in its initial stages and things can be confirmed only in coming days.
Besides Rekka, Rathina Siva also made a film titled Vaa Deal with Arun Vijay but because of financial disputes, the film’s release looks doubtful.
Meanwhile, Chekka Chivantha Vaanam is expected to release later this year. The film is jointly produced by Madras Talkies and Lyca Productions.
The movie has an ensemble cast including Vijay Sethupathi, Arvind Swami, Arun Vijay, Jyothika, Aishwarya Rajesh and Aditi Rao Hydari.
In the meantime, Simbu appeared for a reality show recently. He was seen sporting Rajinikanth’s makeover for the upcoming film Kaala. Clad in black, Simbu looked dapper as ever and the pictures have become a hit on the internet.
