Simbu aka Silambarasan aka STR, who loves the tag of ‘young superstar’ prefixing his name, appears to have found a ‘new love’ in his life. Simbu’s much-publicised affair with actress Nayantara ended in their separation after Nayan felt she’s had enough of him and his tantrums. In a way, the split helped Simbu professionally as he has been making rapid strides as an actor of substance.
The temperamental Simbu surprised himself and his fans last year with his subdued yet effective portrayal of a youth madly in love in Gautam Menon’s ‘Vinnai Thaandi Varuvaaya’. There were no ‘finger’ jobs, as one has come to expect in his movies, as Simbu went about his role in a methodical manner in ‘VTV’, his second and only successful film opposite Trisha.
Talking about Simbu’s latest passion, if you think it’s some girl or an actress, then you’ve got it terribly wrong: he loves his pet dog very much these days.
The dog, a breed which womenfolk have shown tendency to like over the years, has become close to our own STR who has named it ‘Cine’ after purchasing it at a whopping cost of Rs.2 lakhs.
Why the name ‘Cine’: it’s just to reinforce the love for the cinema! If you think it’s a bit too much, have this: Simbu reportedly spent quite a lot in celebrating Cine’s ‘birthday’ last month. The maintenance expenditure of Cine runs into around Rs.18,000/-, sources close to the star say!
