Contrary to what was widely reported in the print and television media, Unit insiders of Simbu’s upcoming untitled film opposite ex-flame Nayanthara say (on condition of anonymity, though!) that the star appeared to be ‘very much comfortable’ in conversing and acting along with Nayanthara.
Simbu and Nayan split after a brief period of courtship a few years back. After their split, the couple has hardly spoken to each other. Nayan later found the love of her life in Prabhu Deva but at a time when she was about to get married to Prabhu Deva, tremors rocked their relationship and she then quit the industry apparently unable to bear the shock of losing Prabhu Deva.
Nayan made a successful comeback to Tamil films with last year’s back-to-back successful films such as Raja Rani and Arrambam. She has now been cast opposite Simbu by Pandiraj, director of the national award-winning film Pasanga, in an untitled film. Simbu and Nayan’s casting has upped the market value of the film for sure.
Speaking unofficially, Simbu said that he was ‘absolutely comfortable’ in working with Nayanthara. He, however, revealed that he felt hugely embarrassed whenever the whole crew members would stare at him when he uttered dialogues facing Nayanthara.
Simbu’s sister Ilakkiya is to get married next week. When queried about his marriage, Simbu quipped that he might even get married before the end of this year!
