The dashing Simbu is a big fan of the legendary Rajinikanth and holds him in high regard. Recently, on a popular show, STR got the opportunity to pay a fitting tribute to ‘Thalaiva’. And, not surprisingly, he made full use of the opportunity. STR appeared on the show sporting a look similar to the one donned by Rajini in Kaala and tried to conjure the kind of swag associated with Rajini. Not surprisingly, his antics won over the audience and became the highlight of the show. STR surely knows how to steal the show.
For the uninitiated, Kaala is touted to be a crime-drama and features Rajinikanth in the role of a gangster. Its teaser was unveiled on Holi and it became the talk of K-town in no time. It indicated that the film will have some political undertones and revolve around the rise of the oppressed. Kaala has been produced by actor Dhanush and is a Pa Ranjith directorial. Besides Rajini. It also features Huma Qureshi and veteran actor Nana Patekar in the lead.
As far as Simbu is concerned, he was last seen in AAA which bombed at the ticket window and failed to impress fans. In fact, the response was so poor that the makers were forced to cancel its sequel. Following this, STR landed in the midst of an ugly controversy when the producer accused him of being unprofessional. Replying to these allegations, he had said that nothing would stop him from entertaining fans.
“It should have been a 1 part film but due to the budget issue, we had to make it a 2 part film. There have been issues but what bothered me was that the producer could have told me about it rather than blowing up the issue after 6 months You can stop me from acting, but you cannot stop me from entertaining my fans,” he had added.
At present, he has Chekka Chivantha Vaanam in his kitty.
