Simbu had teamed up with director Vijay Chandar for the 2015 film Vaalu. This commercial potboiler featured Hansika Motwani as the female lead. It became an average grosser at the box office. If the latest Kollywood grapevine is anything to go by, the duo is all set to team up for another film soon.
Both of them were actually supposed to work together in the past for the Tamil remake of Temper. However, due to some reasons, Simbu got replaced by Vishal and later, even the director got changed as well. After Vaalu, Vijay Chandar made Sketch with Chiyaan Vikram and Sanga Thamizhan with Vijay Sethupathi. These action entertainers failed to perform well at the box office. Thus, Vijay is looking forward to striking back hard with his new movie. Apparently, this film will go on floors by the end of this year.
As of now, Simbu is shooting for the movie Maanadu. This political thriller is being directed by Venkat Prabhu. This is the first film in the combination of Simbu and Venkat Prabhu. Apart from this, Simbu has also signed a movie with director Myskkin. This film will go on the floors soon. The Manmadhan actor was last seen in the short film Karthik Dial Seytha Yenn. Directed by Gautham Menon, this short featured Trisha in the other lead role. It is a sequel to the trio's 2010 romantic blockbuster Vinnaithaandi Varuvaayaa. The short film is getting a good response on the internet.
