Y Gee Mahendran had acted alongside Simbu in director Adhik Ravichandran in Anbanavan Adangadhavan Asaradhavan. The combination, though weird, managed to look interesting on screen. Now, the duo is back again for director Venkat Prabhu's Maanadu, which is in the last leg of completion. Maanadu was slated to release in May but has been postponed due to the novel coronavirus pandemic. Recently, Y Gee Mahendran shared a statement in which he spoke about Maanadu and heaped praises on his co-star Simbu aka Silambarasan.
In a statement, U Gee Mahendran said, "I can't divulge details about my character but it's going to be an important one in the film. Venkat Prabhu's unique screenplay is going to be another big attraction of Maanaadu. Maanaadu will be a turning point in Silambarasan TR's career. If he continues to choose the right scripts, there is a bigger place waiting for him. Being a drama artist, I liked Silambarasan's style of enhancing his character on the sets. The icing on the cake is he has promised that after the shoot, he would like to do a drama with me."
