Producer Suresh Kamatchi has revealed that he has dropped actor Simbu from upcoming Tamil political thriller Manaadu, which was originally announced nearly two years ago. Suresh added that he will now make the film with another actor in the lead.
In a statement, Suresh said he has dropped Simbu from the project because he’s tired of waiting for the film to take off. Nevertheless, he’s thanked Simbu for graciously accepting the offer in the first place.
Director Venkat Prabhu, who was to join hands with Simbu for the first time in Manaadu, took to Twitter to share a heartfelt post.
“It’s very unfortunate that I couldn’t work with my brother Simbu in #maanaadu. Everything is time bounded. Considering the amount of emotional and financial pressure that the producer is going through, I have to respect the decision taken by the producer. Thanks for all the love,” Prabhu tweeted.

Meanwhile, Hariharan gajendran, a die hard fan of STR and spokesperson of the actor said that they are trying to bring Simbu down by dropping the project. His tweet said “They have always wanted to bring him down and take away everything from him and failed. Now they are trying to manipulate and push his fans away from him so that they can try to bring him down. But we the #STR fans are emotional but not disloyal.”

However, this tweet was trolled by Simbu’s own fans. One of a fan said that no one is trying to bring Simbu down and asked him to stop rumouring. Check out some of their reactions here :

I’ve been a loyal STR for last 18 years. But today, this has been hands down disappointing and hurtful. Hope he realises the worth of his fans
