Silambarasan has slammed Bharath, who indirectly pointed his finger
at the former for getting less weightage for his role in
Vaanam. The Vinnaithandi Varuvaya star claims
that he was not responsible for limiting the Boys actor's
character in the recently released film.
Simbu says that he is not a producer to call the shots. He adds
that the actor requested editor Anthony to not chop the scenes of
other stars, including Bharath. In fact, a few scenes involving
Silambarasan and Santhanam were deleted from the final copy.
He further claims that the makers of the film know the market
and based on it, they sell their product. For an instance,
Mangaatha is a multi-starrer film but the movie is being
promoted like an Ajith Kumar's film. Likewise, Nanban has
ensemble cast but the movie bosses promote it like a Vijay's
product. The star value in the material is what the filmmakers
consider while promoting the film, Simbu concludes.
