Hansika, Simbu Confirm Relationship

Southern actress Hansika Motwani and Tamil actor Silambarasan aka Simbu have confirmed that they are in a relationship. However, Simbu says any decision related to their marriage will be taken by their respective families. Hanskika had been rubbishing rumours about her link-up with Simbu, but she has finally opened up on micro-blogging site Twitter.

“(I have) been hearing many rumours about my personal life, so just want to clear (the air).Yes, I’m seeing STR (Simbu) and hence I wouldn’t like to talk about my personal life,” Hansika posted on her Twitter page.

Confirming the news, Simbu posted on Twitter: “Yes, I’m with Hansika and right now she is doing really good and marriage will be decided by our family. (I) hope you will respect our privacy”. Ever since the duo started shooting for Tamil films “Vaalu” and “Vettai Mannan”, it was reported that they had developed fondness for each other. While Simbu is busy shooting for “Vaalu”, Hansika is now busy wrapping up Tamil comedy “Biriyani” and Telugu untitled multi-starrer with Vishnu Manchu.



Simbu And I Are Not Together – Haniska

Simbu’s dad T. Rajendhar’s response to a query about his son getting married to a girl of his choice has triggered fresh controversy . The actor/director/politician has apparently commented in a magazine that he will not stand in the way if his son Simbu romanced anybody, and was also fine with it being Hansika.

DC caught up with Hansika, the hot and happening star of Tamil films who is here in Chennai for the shooting of Biriyani. A peeved Hansika says, “Oh gosh! Time and again, I having to repeat that Simbhu and I are not together. I even clarified this news on my twitter page a few weeks ago that I have been hearing a lot of news about my link up.

All I can do is laugh it off because I love reading stuff about myself about which I myself don’t know. Let me clear the air: there is no truth to any of these rumours. When I start seeing someone, I will openly inform the media,“ she adds. “These rumours may have cropped up just because we are doing two films, Vaalu and Vettai Mannan. He is a friendly co-star but our relationship is strictly professional. There’s nothing beyond that,“ she adds. She says that she was not aware of any com ments reportedly made by T. Rajendhar.

The actress, who has shed about 11 kilos and looks gorgeous, says, “I realised that I would have to look trim and svelte if I were to continue my good work in the film industry . I am a vegetarian and was a foodie earlier. But now, I hardly eat and cut down mainly on high calorie food.
Apart from workouts, I swim every day and I think that has helped me shed a few kilos. I hope to maintain this figure into the coming years.“

Hansika is one person who is averse to keeping late hours. “I am a boring person and you may even call me anti-social. But I am not a party person and I need my proper sleep of eight hours a day .
Sleep is my only indulgence. Even my unit members used to pull my leg when we were shooting in the late evening hours. They would say, `Hansika m’am, it’s nearing 9, gear up for your sleep’!“ The 22-year-old, who has a huge fan base in K’town, says that her fans were upset about the sad end her character Sathya meets in Singam 2. “But they were appreciative of my meaty role and performance. The best part is that I haven’t watched Singam 2 yet.

Whenever I am in Chennai, I am shooting from 9 am to 9 pm. There’s hardly any time to go to the theatre. I will be coming to the city early next week.
This time around I have decided that by hook or by crook I should find time to go to the theatre and watch the film.

She is currently busy with Biriyani with Karthi, Maan Karate with Sivakarthikeyan, Vaalu and Vettai Mannan with Simbu and a Telugu film with Vishnu.The buzz is that a leading filmmaker has cast her to play opposite a big star, but Hansika refused to comment. “I don’t like to talk about a film before signing it,“ she says in parting.

Hansika About Simbu – Anantha Vikadan (Tamil)

“சிம்புவும் நானும் பிரிஞ்சுட்டோம்!” – ஸீ யூ ஹன்சிகா
Anantha Vikadan Weekly Magazine (24.07.2013)

”நீங்களும் காதல்ல விழுந்திட்டீங்க போல… சிம்பு கூட லவ் எப்படிப் போகுது?’

”நான் ரெண்டு மாசத்துக்கு முன்னாடியே இந்தக் கேள்விக்கு ட்விட்டர்ல பதில் சொல்லிட்டேன். லவ் பத்தி யோசிக்கக் கூட எனக்கு நேரம் இல்லை. தமிழ், தெலுங்கு ரெண்டு ஃபீல்டுலேயும் சாப்பிடக்கூட நேரம் இல்லாம ஓடிட்டு இருக்கேன்!”

”சிம்பு கூட சண்டை போட்டு பிரேக் அப் ஆகிட்டதாவும் நியூஸ் வந்துச்சே?”
”ஓ… முதல்ல லவ். இப்போ சண்டையா? ரொம்ப நல்லது. அப்படியே நானும் சிம்புவும் பிரிஞ்சுட்டோம்னு பெருசா எழுதிடுங்க. இந்தக் கதைக்கு ஒரு டிராஜடி க்ளைமாக்ஸ் கிடைச்சிடும்.”

”நெருப்பு இல்லாமப் புகையுமா?”
”ஏன் ஐஸ் கட்டி புகையாதா சார்? முதல்ல பிரபு தேவா, அப்புறம் சித்தார்த், இப்போ சிம்பு… அடுத்தது யாரு சிவகார்த்திகேயனா? இவங்க பேரையெல்லாம் எனக்கு சரியா ஸ்பெல் பண் ணக்கூட தெரியாது. யெஸ், சிம்புகிட்ட ரெண்டு முறை ‘ஐ லவ் யூ’ சொல்லியிருக்கேன்தான். ஆனா, ரெண்டுமே கேமரா முன் னாடி மட்டும்தான். ஒண்ணு ‘வேட்டை மன்னன்’ படத்துக்காக. இன்னொண்ணு ‘வாலு’ படத்துக்காக. இப்போ போதுமா?”

”நீங்க மருமகளா வந்தா, ஏத்துக்கத் தயார்னு சிம்புவோட அப்பா டி.ஆர். சொல்லியிருக்காராமே?”
”அவர் என்ன சொல்லியிருக்கார்னா, அந்தப் பொண்ணு எங்க குடும்பத்துக்கு ஓ.கே-னு மட்டும்தான். மத்தபடி நானோ, சிம்புவோ ஏதும் சொன்னோமா? நானே இது பத்தி சிம்புகிட்ட பேசினதுகூட கிடையாது சார்.”

”சிம்பு உங்களுக்காக தி.நகர்ல ஒரு வீடு வாங்கியிருக்கிறதாக் கூட சொல்றாங்களே?”
(சிரிக்கிறார்) ”வீட்டுலேருந்து நேரா ஷூட்டிங்… ஷூட்டிங் முடிஞ்சதும் நேரா வீடு. இப்படித்தான் என் வாழ்க்கை போய்ட்டு இருக்கு. என்னைப் பத்தி ஏன் இப்படிக் கிளப்பிவிடறாங்கனு தெரியலை. போட்டி, பொறாமை இருந்தா… அதை நடிக்கிறதுல மட்டும் காமிக்கணும். என்னைப் பத்தி இப்படித் தப்பு தப்பாக் கிளப்பி விடறவங்களை அந்தக் கடவுள் நிச்சயம் பார்த்துப்பார். அவ்வளவுதான்!”

Str’s Spiritual Trysts


Looks like actor Silambarasan is in his spirituality zone more often nowadays. The actor, who tasted success as a child star and managed to give the same impetus to his career even as he graduated to adult roles, is now pursuing his spiritual quests. 

Simbu is said to have managed to take some time off from his busy schedule while shooting for his latest project lnga Enna Solludhu, to go on a pilgrimage to Haridwar.

 When asked about his sudden interest. Simbu said, “Yes, I am into spirituality and meditation; they help me mature. I am rediscovering myself and this self realisation would go a long way in shaping my inner self. I have been to Rishikesh and Haridwar to seek blessings and I am sure the breath of fresh air blended with spirituality will help me attain the goal I deserve. As far as I am concerned, spirituality is not restricted to visiting temples and holy places. It is the search of knowledge and that is true in my case as well.” 

Meanwhile. the actor has clarified that his much delayed projects Vaalu and Vettai Mannan will begin soon, following news on his micro-blogging page that said he had dropped both the projects.

I Don’t Want To Take The Blame

Simbu announced on his micro-blogging page that he has dropped both his upcoming films Vaalu and Vettai Mannan, which have been in the making for a long time. Chennai Times spoke to the actor on the issue, and he said, “There is a general opinion that I’m always responsible for any delay in my projects.

But, this time, I didn’t want to take the blame because it was the producer, who was responsible for the delay. Both the films are being produced by the same person (S S Chakravarthy) and he was busy with other commitments. I didn’t get any update from his production house about resuming the shoots of these projects for a very long time. So, I had to announce that I’m putting these films on hold, though I was very much keen on completing them.” 

    Following Simbu’s tweet, we hear that the producer had contacted him and the two have sorted out the issue. “I will be shooting for Vaalu shortly. We have just nine days of shoot left. Shooting for Vettai Mannan, which is 50 per cent complete, will commence soon after that,” Simbu added.

Heart copy STR

STR opens up to udhav naig on his upcoming films Vaalu and Vettai Mannan, his Love Anthem and being comfortable with his image.
In this day and age when celebrities hire PR firms to carefully carve out their image in the media, Silambarasan’s ‘headline-worthy’ answers, are still refreshing. I say this after spending 15 minutes interviewing him inside the cool comfort of the caravan in which Silambarasan, who prefers the tag ‘STR’ these days, calmly answers questions. What is that that makes people think he is a person who lacks respect for others? “I think the reason I am called arrogant is because I speak from my heart.”
The negative labels have been part of his journey in Kollywood, be it when he turned scriptwriter for Manmadhan at a young age or when he recently released a single titled Love Anthem for‘unity, love and humanity’. “When I wrote the script for Manmadhan I never thought age was an issue. I did it because I thought I could pull it off,” he says. The Love Anthem, however, garnered criticism on social networks and in certain sections of the press, he says. “Frankly, I was really surprised. They said I was doing it to compete with Dhanush who had released ‘Kolaveri’ at that time, while I was just trying to do an international track to spread the message of love. I couldn’t understand why people were comparing two different actors and personalities, in the first place!”
Does the constant bad press affect him? “When it happens over time it does begin to have its effects. I am no exception,” he says bluntly. There were encouraging signs of this negativity declining after his collaboration with filmmaker Gautam Vasudev Menon for Vinnaithaandi Varuvaaya. Silambarasan became a desirable lover boy overnight. “I can feel the way things have changed for the better,” smiles Simbu. “Films can change a lot of things.” The success of the film allowed him to rebrand himself as a modern and stylish hero. He followed it up with two un-Simbu-ish films such asVaanam (in which he shared screen space with other notable stars) and Poda Podi, which was slightly experimental, considering its primary target audience was the urban middle class.
His next couple of films, Vaalu and Vettai Mannan, which are being filmed at the moment, are what he calls “commercial films”. I ask him if he plays a college student, he says, “In Vaalu, I don’t play a college student but I fall in love with one, and Vettai Mannan is a gangster story that deals with themes of friendship and loyalty.” Does that mean Simbu is reverting to mass masala films? “I am a person who listens to my heart.”The actor also cites ‘listening to his heart’ as the reason he spontaneously decided to wish the students of Loyola College who protested against war crimes in Sri Lanka. “I didn’t call my friends or the press. I just went there without really thinking about the repercussions. I thought it was the right thing to do.” After making headlines by roping in international singer Akon, certain sections of the press said he would be collaborating with Rihanna. “I don’t know where these things come from! When I announced that I will rope in Akon for Love Anthem, everyone said it was impossible. Now, after I have made it happen, people are saying that I am going to work with Rihanna. I am looking to work with an international singer.
