The Vaanam success came ever so Simbu’s way as the actor was praised in the media and by fans and close pals. So much so that daddy T Rajendar even compared his dear son to Puratchi Thalaivar MGR. The comment by TR generated a heated debate among Kolly cine goers, making top headlines after Vaanam’s 75th day celebrations.
Even though Vaanam also included Bharath alongside ‘Cable Raja’, the actor is peeved with his Vaanam experience. Bharath has come out in the open accusing Simbu of sidelining him and his role in a movie, so much publicized as a Simbu offering. In return, Simbu has lashed out at his ‘co-actor’ saying, “I am not the producer of the movie and neither do I call for the shots.” In fact according to Simbu it was his own parts that were removed out of the final version even though he requested Editor Anthony to keep his shots intact along with Bharath’s scenes. Furthermore he gave out a small lesson in packaging to Bharath saying a movie is sold on its star value and the lead star is the focus of producers and the whole promotion team. Just like Ajiths Mankatha that’s an all star Kollywood package is promoted with Thala’s name and Shankar’s Nanban having 3 heroes rests its confidence in Ilayathalapathy Vijay pulling of the show.
Bharath what shall we say, maybe “Boys will be Boys” and Yes! we love you that way.
