Simbu has all the qualities to become No.1: GauthamPublished: November 6, 2015
Director Gautham Vasudev Menon, who recently vented out frustration that ‘Simbu doesn’t turn up for shoot’ of ‘Achcham Yenbadhu Madamaiyada’, has now heaped laurels on the actor, saying that he has all the qualities to become the top star of the industry.
“I don’t want him to be a No. 2 or No. 4, I want him to be the No. 1 hero in this industry, and I know he is capable of that,” the ace filmmaker said in an interview, adding: ” But these small niggling issues surrounding him are bogging him down, delaying his success. He should forget his issues and move on.”
Gautham also said the shoot of ‘AYM’ has resumed and plans are on to release in January. In Septemmber, speaking at the LV Prasad Academy’s ninth convocation day, Gautham said, “I am currently filming a film (‘Achcham Yenbadhu Madamaiyada’) in Tamil with a hero (Simbu) and I am not able find funding easily at all. So I had to do a Telugu film to fund the Tamil film.”
“It’s my 15th film and I have had some decent films down the line. Most of the time the hero doesn’t turn up also to the sets of the film for shoot,” he said.
“This is not going to go out on youtube right? Ok, I mean it, so I don’t care. He doesn’t turn up for shoot,” the director added.
