Actor Simbu, who has been going through a rough patch on the professional front, is trying to redeem his career with interesting career choices. Currently busy wrapping up work on Mani Ratnam’s multi-starrer, Chekka Chivantha Vaanam, he’s expected to join hands with filmmaker Gautham Menon for the third time for the sequel to their highly successful Vinnaithaandi Varuvaaya.

It was a landmark film in director Gautham Menon and actors Simbu and Trisha's career.

In a recent video interview, Gautham has confirmed that he will rejoin hands with Simbu for the sequel. Not long ago, Gautham had said that he plans to make the sequel with R Madhavan. However, the plan didn’t materialize.

The latest update is that Anushka Shetty is likely to play Simbu’s love interest in this sequel. According to the latest industry grapevine, Gautham Menon has convinced Anushka to be part of Vinnaithaandi Varuvaaya 2 and the latter is expected to give her nod very soon. Gautham had signed Anushka for a multi-starrer project which never took off, and hence, has approached her with an offer to work in his next project. 

In an earlier interview to Film Companion, Menon had said that the sequel will follow events eight years after Vinnaithaandi Varuvaaya in its protagonist Karthik’s life. “This’ll be a story of four friends who meet and decide to go to the US for their fifth friend’s wedding. It’s not a Hangover type movie but it’ll be light-hearted. Maddy has agreed to come on board and he’ll be reprising Karthik’s role which was originally played by Simbu. We are in the process of finalising someone from Telugu soon,” Menon said.

However, the sequel most likely won’t happen this year as Simbu has signed four new projects. Simbu's next film is political thriller Maanadu with Venkat Prabhu. An official confirmation regarding the same is expected soon.
