Of late actor Simbu and Jeeva have been in action “behind the scenes” too, resulting in a bit of mudslinging from both corners. Fans will be aware that it was the ‘KO’ factor that has proved to be a dividing bridge between both the actors. Apparently Simbu was first booked for KO, after he casually walked out of the project, giving way to Jeeva who held onto his seat in style. But things got worse when Jeeva took a dig at Simbu in his recent interview saying Simbu has never been a good friend to me. The final straw was drawn when he accused Simbu indulging in back-stabbing and saying that this won’t ever lead to any sort of healthy competition.
Now actor Jeeva recently had his Rowthiram release for the Independence Day and the movie was just another feather on his cap collecting heavily at the box office. But Simbu fans are really not happy with all the praises falling Jeeva’s way and have now termed Jeeva’s “ back stabbing accusation” as a cheap stunt of publicity to promote his movie. In fact actor Simbu has also received support from his Vettai Mannan co-star Jai who said, “Simbu was happy for Jeeva quite in a genuine way when KO was declared a hit, though it was a lost opportunity for him.” Simultaneously Jeeva fans have brushed off all claims saying, “Simbu’s only competitor is Dhanush.”
Yikes! Now that’s a real poker.
