Controversies come together

Monday, November 29, 2004 • Tamil Comments

Silmabarasan, after the success of Manmathan, is a much more relaxed person. But still controversies continue to dog him. The absence at Rajni daughter's wedding and the run-in with comedian Gounda Mani has ensured further headlines for him. On the other hand, director S J Suryah is also no stranger to troubles. In fact, he has made a career out of it.

So when these trouble-chasers come together, the industry is bound to sit up and take not ice. Simbu and Suryah are reportedly in discussion to do a film together. If Manmathan and New are anything to go by, the content of the duo's film is not difficult to guess.

Simbu is, meanwhile, elated with Manmathan doing brisk business at the box office. "I am overjoyed since my debut venture as scriptwriter has succeeded. My immediate attention is on Thotti Jaya.  Following which I will act in a movie to be directed by S J Surya".

Asked about Gounda Mani's charge that Simbu cut a major portion of his comedy sequences from the movie, the actor said, "few scenes were cut only to sustain the pace in the screenplay. Being a senior artiste himself, Gounda Mani should understand this".
