Simbu and his outlandish statements are as popular as the star’s various liaisons with his co-stars and leading heroines. Simbu, who has had two official break-ups with Nayanthara and Hansika, has said that he doesn’t like to star in films nowadays. Simbu’s statements were made during a recent television interview he gave to actress Sangeetha.
“I have been involved in all spheres of film-making and I didn’t plan to know them; it just occurred naturally. I had felt it would have been better had I remained unaware of those things as I could sense something was going wrong but wouldn’t be in a situation to reveal it to the makers. I could only remain helpless, hoping that things won’t go out of control.
“Nowadays, I don’t want to star in films at all; I want to do something beyond films. When I was young, I wanted to become a superstar like Rajinikanth and act in many films. However, life appears to be very different in the late twenties; I don’t want to get caught in a circle called cinema and want to get out of it. I want to do something to the society which would be beneficial to it.
“I hate amassing money as I feel that money pushes humanitarianism out of the window. It makes good men turn evil. The society is disintegrating with feelings of jealousy and I feel money is the reason for this. If I’m asked whether I want to become the next superstar, I would say that I don’t have any such desires. I have no jealousy, competition or anger and am least affected by the failure/success of my films,” said Simbu.
