There can be no denying that 2017 was a bad year for Simbu. In August, he suffered a big setback when his highly ambitious Anbanavan Asaradhavan Adangadhavan bombed at the box office and failed to impress critics. In fact, the response was so poor that the makers were forced to drop its sequel. To make matters worse, sometime later, the producer leveled a host allegations against STR and said that he suffered losses because of his unprofessional behavior.
“After he was formally signed for the project, he hardly turned up for any discussion. Shooting was impossible for he hardly turned up. On many occasions, we had to pack up for the day without even canning a single shot. Though we paid him the remuneration, he never honoured his commitment. He would turn up at the end of the day with some excuse,” the producer had added.
Responding to this, he had said that no one could stop him from doing what he loves the most—entertaining his 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,” STR had added.
Now, with 2017 in the rearview, STR is in the limelight for an awesome reason. As it so happens, his latest pic is creating a buzz on the social media and that too for all the right reasons. In it, he can seen in a fit new avatar that he carries off like a boss. Those shades too gel well with his look and add a new dimension to it. His transformation truly is epic!
On the work front, he currently has Mani Ratnam’s multi starrer Chekka Chivantha Vaanam in his kitty.
