With accordance to heavy snowfall in Canada, Silambarasan had shelved the film"s shooting and took on with Gautham Menon"s Vinnaithandi Varuvaaya. Much prior to this film"s release, he had plans about commencing his own directorial Valiban, which was supposed to be produced by SS Chakravarthy of Nic Arts.
On the spur moment, his plans were changed as SS Chakravarthy got himself involved in two projects (featuring his son Johnny of Renigunta in lead role) at the same time. With no options left, Simbhu has now decided to kick-start Poda Podi that will feature Sarath Kumar"s daughter Varalakshmi in female lead.
His closer sources have revealed that soon after completing this project, Simbhu will sing Mani Ratnam"s untitled film, which is set to be simultaneously made in Hindi and Tamil. The Hindi version featuring Vivek Oberoi in lead will have Mani Ratnam"s associate wielding the megaphone while the Mani himself will direct Silambarasan with Raj Kiran performing a prominent role.
After getting through vivid confusions over choosing his next project, Silambarasan has finally zeroed down on Poda Podi. Touted to be a breezy romantic entertainer, the film"s photo shoot was held before few months with Bollywood"s most happening photographer Daboo Ratnani clicking promotional pictures.
