Simbu, who has just wrapped up the shoot of Vaanam (remake of critically acclaimed Telugu film Vedam), has already begun his next flick Vettai Mannan, to be directed by debutant Nelson.
Unlike VTV, Vaanam and Podaa Podi (ongoing), Vettai Mannan will have lots of action with a strong comedy element. Interestingly, Nelson has worked with Simbu in Manmadhan and Vallavan. Vettai Mannan, an action-packed gangster story, is Simbu’s costliest film till date (30 to 40 crores).
Jai of Subramaniapuram fame will play an important role (as Simbu’s friend) in this film which will be shot in Chennai, United States and Mexico; Yuvan Shakar Raja will compose its music. Interestingly, Simbu will have three heroines in the film; there are reports the producer is trying to get a top Bollywood actress for the project.
