It may be recalled that Silambarasan was offered to play the lead role in Ko. But the actor turned down the offer, as he did not like the script. Taking this as a topic for discussion, a few of his Facebook followers felt that the actor took a right decision by staying out of the project.
Simbu, who noticed those statements, intervened and urged the fans not to talk against any movie. He posted, “Doing a movie and not doing it is an actor's personal choice . I welcome ur comments and at the same time i don't want any 1 one to talk bad about other films in my page ... I am from the same industry and I respect cinema and want all movies to do well for our industry ...Vaanam is releasing on 29th and I promise my fans that the movie will not let them down ... thanks".
Vaanam is the story of five individuals, who belong to different professions, lifestyle etc. Their characters represent the Pancha Bootha (five elements) - Earth, Water, Fire, Air and Space. The movie, which is a remake of Telugu blockbuster Vedam, is directed by Krish and produced by VTV Ganesh.
