Actor-producer-director-playback singer Simbu, the mightily talented personality of K-Town who remains an enigma to most of his fans and well-wishes, is all set to make his debut as music director with an upcoming film titled as Sakka Podu Podu Raja. In a reversal of role, he has made his close friend and music director Yuvan Shankar Raja to sing a song in the film!
Simbu’s many songs in Yuvan Shankar Raja’s music – the most notable being the Loosu Pennae song from the super-hit film Vallavan – are quite popular; in reversing roles, Simbu ‘guided’ Yuvan in singing the song in his music for Sakka Podu Podu Raja while recording the song. It may be noted that Anirudh Ravichander has also sung a song in the film in Simbu’s music.
Directed by debutant director Sethuraman, the film stars comedian-turned-hero Santhanam in the lead opposite newcomer Vaibhavi Shandilya. VTV Ganesh is the film’s producer. The film has already generated huge excitement as Simbu’s fans are awaiting with eagerness to listen to his songs.
The ‘Kadhal Devadhai’ song, sung by Yuvan, has been penned by lyricist Vairamuthu. The film also gives a different dimension to Simbu’s personality and might help in resurrecting his image, which took a severe beating with his latest film Anbanavan Adangadhavan Asaradhavan which released a few months back!
