Simbhu is over the moon, narrating his experience of working with director Gautham Vasudev Menon in Vinnai Thandi Varuvaya. Knowing the actor’s fondness for direction, how did he enjoy playing the role of an assistant director? Though his role was made easy in a well-etched character, he had to get the lines right to the director’s satisfaction.
Simbhu said the movie would be a milestone in his career, in a role which he hoped to bring out other facets of his personality. “There are characters where you simply live with that and this experience is something I would cherish for a long time,” said Simbhu.
The actor is convinced that an artiste should not restrict himself to a parameter. “The audience is sure to accept the star if the character so portrayed is convincing,” said Simbhu with an air of assurance.
And talking of his first love, Simbhu said his next directorial venture is Vaaliban, doubling up as an actor. All he has to do is wait till Vinnai Thandi Varuvayo sees the light of day.
