Young and hot actress Hansika, who happens to be the flavour of the season in Kollywood, gets to pair up opposite Simbu in his upcoming film Vettai Mannan. Simbu has had a solitary release in Vaanam so far this year. The film, which was the Tamil remake of the Telugu hit Vedam, also had Bharath as the second hero in the film.
Simbu is presently starring in Osthi, a Tamil remake of the Bollywood hit Dabbang, which is being directed by Dharani. With the film getting ready to hit the screens in about three weeks’ time on Deepavali, the focus has now shifted as to what would be Simbu’s next film. It would be Vettai Mannan, which has another hero in Jai, who also happens to be one of Simbu’s closest friends.
Deeksha Seth, who has been paired opposite Vikram in the upcoming film Rajapattai, was first signed up as Simbu’s heroine in Vettai Mannan. It now turns out that Deeksha would play second fiddle to Hansika, who has been replaced as the first heroine by Hansika, who was last seen in Engeyum Kaadhal opposite ‘Jayam’ Ravi.
Speaking about the prospect of starring opposite Simbu, the bubbly Hansika says “Vettai Mannan is going to be an important film in my career; as per the script, I almost have an ‘equal’ role the hero. I’m really looking forward to working with Simbu.” The film would be produced by S.S. Chakravathy’s Nic Arts and would be directed by Nelson.
The film has music by Yuvan Shankar Raja and Santhanam, who rocked with Simbu in Vaanam, is also there to take care of the comedy portions.
