Actor Simbu, after success in Vinnai Thandi Varuvaya, is busy with his next project. Simbu’s mellowed screen presence went down well with the ladies audience. It is still a guess, if Poda Podi will cast him in the same light. It will be hard for Simbu to curtail is natural instincts once again. So everyone is expecting a return of the old Simbu in this movie.
Poda Podi is directed by Vignesh Siva and is produced by Gemini Film Circuit and Padam Kumar. Simbu has gone the extra mile to get his look right in this film. International hair stylists Toni&Guy will be doing Simbu’s hair in this movie. Varalakshmi Sarath Kumar, daughter of Sarath Kumar will be paired with Simbu. The lovely lass has made a mark as an able dancer, wonder if acting will be her forte.
After attaining commercial as well as critical acclaim, actor Vikram has decided to commence his next. Ravanan seems to be doing good at the box office. The initial reviews on the movie were very good. But all the good word about the film hasn’t translated into money at the box office. This trend is typical of Mani Rathnam’s movies. In the recent past, from Kannathil Muthamital to Guru, only the reviews have been good, but not the collections.
However, Actor Vikram, who still awaiting the audience response to Ravan (where he plays Prithiraj’s character), has started work for his next film. Titled as “Vedi”, the movie is another police story. How many more police stories will we see. Surya, who is also trying to break into Bollywood, starred in Singam, a typical commercial, cop film; and now it’s Vikram’s turn. Is it a trend that stars wanting to enter into Bollywood, accept to such commercial films, to keep the market in Tamil steady?
“Vedi” is directed by Bhoopathi Pandian and is produced by Mohan Natarajan. Devi Sri Prasad will be doing the tunes and lleana will star alongside Vikram. Ileana is looking to make another entry into Tamil. Hope she has better success this time around.
