“vetrimaran Wished Simbu To Play ‘anbu’ Character.” Says Dhanush Cinema News
Acting and producing under the banner of ‘Wunderbar Films’, Dhanush’s ‘Vada Chennai’ involves actors like Andrea Jeremiah, Aishwarya Rajesh, Director Ameer, Daniel Balaji, Samuthirakani and many more actors. Nearing to the release on October 17th, the team had a brief meeting with the press reporters today.
When Dhanush talked about how ‘Vada Chennai’ has been worked out, he has stated that, “It has been many years that Vetrimaaran has been making ready with ‘Vada Chennai’ script. Since 2013, Vetrimaaran has been trying hard to do this movie. At that same time we understood that ‘Vada Chennai’ was not right to be handled at that point of time. The reason behind that is there was not a demand and market for this story. ‘Vada Chennai’ has a vast story which requires ample of time and huge finance. So we have moved apart from that story for a while and started working on ‘Aadukalam’. Then we were having a break which was continued by concentrating in our individual works and movies.
After all this has happened, one day all of a sudden Vetrimaaran called me and said that he is planning to make STR to act in ‘Vada Chennai’. He wished STR to play the character, ‘Anbu’ which I have acted now and he wanted me to do the powerful ‘Kumar’ character in ‘Vada Chennai’. I disagreed to him telling that, “Sir, I have generosity. But I don’t have that much more generous character. Don’t mistake me.”
After that I was busy with other movies and then once again Vetrimaaran gave me a call and said, “Due to some unexpected reasons, we couldn’t start the shooting with STR. So we can start working for this movie. Do you agree for this movie?” I said ok immediately. But if people know about my acceptance for working in ‘Vada Chennai’ after STR’s exit from the script, it will be an unwanted controversy. So we have postponed the making of ‘Vada Chennai’ once again. Then he started to direct ‘Visaaranai’ and I was also working on other movies. After a short break, we have started working on ‘Vada Chennai’ again. Now the movie is getting set for the release. I don’t have any guilt to tell this.”
