'Ready for 'Kettavan', gushes SimbuAug 17, 2011 PS
And the latest news is that Simbu will get behind the camera next year, perhaps in a bid to ensure that his dream project, 'Kettavan', shapes up the way he wants it to. Currently, the actor is working with commercial director Dharani on 'Osthi', the Tamil remake of 'Dabangg'.
Confirming the news, the 'VTV' star says, "I'm starting 'Kettavan' next year, for sure. The cast and crew are yet to be finalized but its just that I want to kickstart the film." Many in the industry say that 'Kettavan' is Simbu's dream project. Is that true?. "Well, you could say that," he says, "It's been on my mind for quite a while now and I'm happy that I'm starting it now. It is not 'Manmadhan 2', but it will fall under that style of filmmaking and will be made in Tamil, Telugu and Hindi."
The actor feels that this would come across as a different film for audiences among the current crop of films that he has. "Everybody keeps asking me about 'Kettavan', even though they liked 'VTV' and are eager to know about my current projects," he says, "I couldn't do it in the last few months as I was busy with my other projects but now, I'll seriously start working on it. Yuvan Shankar Raja will score music for the film. The 'Ennada Nadakuthu...,' number that we composed for this film sometime ago was leaked on the Internet and is already a hit," gushes Simbu.
While 'Osthi' is likely to hit screens during Deepavali, Simbu's other projects - 'Podaa Podi' and 'Vettai Mannan' - will follow, after which he'll start work on his dream project. Click the Movie button below for more info:
