In 2004, Simbu's release 'Manmadhan' was a raging success, which was partly directed by himself, starring four top class heroines in the key roles, with the actor himself acting in dual roles.
STR has not had a movie release since last Diwali ('Podaa Podi'), but he has been in currency with the tinsel town, lending his voice to various actors, across languages, paving his way to glory in the field of music. The actor has also been in headlines for his pilgrim trips and his relationship with Hansika. With two films - 'Vaalu' and 'Vettai Mannan' - in queue, both of which has love interest Hansika in the lead, Simbu has firming up his next film. And it looks like the next will be a sequel to the 2004 block buster, 'Manmadhan'. Simbu had mentioned in an interview that he has 'Manmadhan 2' in mind and we hear that he is working on its story now. Looks like we will have the official announcement soon. 'Vaalu' is almost complete and so is 'Vettai Mannan' and the former is expected to release this year.
