Simbu Cautions His Fans in Networking Sites

Sunday, April 24, 2011 • Tamil Comments

There's no efficient a star in Kollywood, other than Simbu, who connects effectively with his fans through social networking sites such as Facebook, Orkut and Twitter. However, after the release of Jeeva starrer 'Ko' that was released a couple of days back, comments from his fans flooded Simbu's fans page, thanking him for not accepting the script as they felt the movie was politically motivated and had little scope for the lead character since it is a multi-starrer movie.

KV Anand, Director of 'Ko' had initially signed Simbu to play the lead role in the movie, however things didn't seem to work out and Silambarasan didn't do the role and Jeeva replaced Simbu in the movie. Keeping these in mind, Simbu's fans used these online mediums to express their thanks and happiness to their idol.

While X commented that the movie has a political dimension to it which will not suit their star as Simbu has fans from all political parties, Y expressed that Simbu missed a opportunity of working with a prominent director. Z wrote that the hero of the film does not have a big role he was treated like just another character in the film and some added that it was Ajmal who in the end comes to be a protagonist. There were also wild discussions expressing 'Ko' resembled 'Ayan' in many ways. There were also a few who felt that Simbu should have accepted the role as it would have given him an opportunity to do a role that he hasn't so far. In response to all these, the admin of the fan page replied saying 'Ko was indded a NO NO for Simbu' which only agitated more fans and received vigorous response immediately.

However, the star was only taken aback by this act of his fans for it is not professional to discuss another's movie in his fan page or put down another’s project. He commented saying, "Doing a movie and not doing it is an actors personal choice. I welcome your comments and at the same time I don't want anyone to talk bad about other films in my page ... I am from the same industry and I respect cinema and want all movies to do well for our industry ...VAANAM is releasing on 29th and i promise my fans VAANAM will not let them down ... thanks." Although, his fans still feel that Simbu was only right in walking out of the script, after Simbu’s reply, his fans appreciated his professional way of handling things and that they respect what their idol has to say.

Speaking to IndiaGlitz Simbu wished all the success to Jeeva’s ‘Ko’ and also expressed his excitement for his upcoming flick ‘Vaanam’ that is all set to hit the screens on April 29!
