The busy schedules of Simbu with Love Anthem seem to have let Vetrimaaran go for this decision. The shooting of Vada Chennai is all set to go on floors from March and the preproduction works are close on the heels of completion. Since Simbu is busy with Love Anthem and pending works of Poda Podi, the director will go for shooting that will include portions without Simbu.
Since it’s a film based on the Northern Chennai Crime Syndicate, there are some powerful characters that are equally powerful as Simbu. Right now, the director is busy finalizing the film’s lead heroine and replacement for Rana Daggubati, who walked out of the film due to creative difference of opinions.
