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.

Akhil’s Vaalu vs Simbu’s Vaalu – The inside story

Yesterday’s newspaper ads came out with the poster of a movie by the name Vaalu. We aren’t talking about the Simbu – Hansika starrer produced by NIC Arts, but another new movie which features Kalloori fame Akhil in the lead. 

 

We hear that the producers of this Akhil starrer hadn’t registered their title with the Producers Council and went ahead with the publicity ad without any clearance from the council. Now there is a stay on this team and they won’t be able to further carry any publicity material in the news dailies. They have to come up with an alternate title right away. 

 

NIC Arts have been retaining the title Vaalu over the past 4 years and they have been renewing their rights. Vijay Chander directs this Simbu starrer and the movie has been delayed quite a bit already, after being planned initially as a Diwali 2012 release.

Student’s power can bring a change: Simbu

Recently Silambarasan made his presence felt at the protest event against Srilanka, organised by city students.

Simbu, who turned up dressed in simple white casual shirt and khaki trouser, was immensely impressed with the efforts put by students to host such an eye-opening protest. He is of opinion that students, who are generally associated with strikes and fights, with this campaign proved that they are also capable of doing constructive activity. “I’m very happy to be part of this campaign organised by these students. I really appreciate to see these young people come together to support such a cause,” said Simbu.

Simbu stated that he supports only those events which he thoroughly believes in, and that’s the reason why he is there on the protest spot, “I have not come here as a celebrity or as an actor; but only to take part as a common man; as a Tamilian. My father, who kept my name as Silambarasan, had been part of several campaigns that supports Tamil causes.”

Noticing that there is a Telugu girl in the protest group, Simbu remarked that when she can support for a Tamil campaign, why we as a Tamilian can’t be a part of the protest.

STR also highlighted the power of students and how it can make a great difference in society. Going by the saying that drop by drop will make a huge ocean; he stated that no matter how small the efforts are, it will gradually grow over to make a big change.

Acknowledging the hardships face by Tamilians in Sri Lanka, the actor signed off saying that he strongly believes that they will surely get a good solution to solve their miseries.
