Simbu's hyped film Kettavan has almost shelved. The film was in the news from the time it was launched, as the story was said to be based on the real life love story of its hero Simbu and Nayantara. Gossip was doing rounds that the actress initiated legal action to stop the project. But later she said that she had no such idea. Recently there was confusion whether the heroine of Kettavan Lekha Washington was acting in the film or not?
Initially the actress has denied the news but later she had accepted that she had been dropped from the film. Simbu is still keeping his silence over the status of the film. The latest news about the film is that Simbu himself has now dropped all the chances of the film being completed soon. We have word that the new producer of the film is not ready to spend more money on the film. “The film will be shelved for the moment and maybe brought back next year."
When we confirmed this news with Simbu, he said, “Yes. What you have heard is true. The project will be put to rest and will be revived in March – April next year. My next project will be Silambattam, which will be launched on the 12th of November under the Lakshmi Movie Makers banner." The film will see cameraman Saravanan"s debut as director. Simbu is in talks with Shreya for her to play the lead role for a whopping amount.
