While STR and Adhik Ravichandran have conveyed their view over the issue of Anbanavan Asaradhavan Adangadhavan, producer Michael Rayappan has alleged STR of his unprofessional nature. In the press meet, Producer Michael Rayappan said, “Actor Simbu was responsible for the greatest tragedy in his life. As soon as he received the advance, Simbu took over the control of the entire movie. Right from the start of the shooting, Simbu created continuous problems for me and the director. Simbu compelled that the film should be released when it was only 35% complete! He also pledged that he would be responsible for whatever the outcome. He also insisted that the movie should be made in 2 parts. However, I could not even contact this actor who talked about acting in the 2nd part! Only actor Simbu should make good all my losses so far, I have incurred a loss of over Rs. 20 Crores on this film.’
Generally, leaving aside this movie, most of the film directors have indeed made complaints that Simbu is not punctual for the shooting schedules. It is an open-book fact that only those who had been punctual had scaled great heights in the film industry. So, the majority of the ‘Kollywood’ industry feel that it is a rather high time that actor Simbu mends his ways considering his future good!
