According to the reports, before kickstarting 'Maanaadu', producer Suresh Kamatchi is in plans to do a medium budget film with Venkat Prabhu and Simbu. The project in their combination has been doing for quite some time now. We have got a little clarity on the same. It seems like Suresh Kamatchi has already proposed the idea of making a medium budget film with STR and Venkat Prabhu on a share basis. So, they will get some amount of remuneration in advance.
After locking the business, they can take the rights of one or more territories. Rumours are rife that Venkat Prabhu has already given his nod for the project but Suresh Kamatchi is yet to extend the deal to STR. The 'Maanadu' team had already completed two schedules in Chennai but halted the third schedule due to the COVID 19 pandemic. As of now, the shoots are at a standstill. The things are slowly getting to normalcy and the complete details will come out soon.
However, Suresh Kamatchi clarified that 'Maanaadu' will happen for sure. But in the meantime, he is planning to execute the film on a share basis. Keep watching the space for the official announcement on the film.
