Hansika Motwani’s 50th film has been titled Maha. She plays the main lead in this heroine-centric film. Wielding the megaphone for this venture will be UR Jameel, a debutant and former associate of director Lakshman, who has directed films such as Romeo Juliet and Bogan. Interestingly, Hansika played the leading lady in both these projects and apparently it was on the sets of Bogan that Jameel impressed the former with a one-liner story.

The latest is that actor Simbu will be seen doing a cameo in Maha and will be joining the shooting soon. He has reportedly given a 7-day callsheet and his scenes will be shot in Istanbul. Sources in the know say that the actor’s character is named Shoiab and that his portions will appear in the flashback.

Simbu and Hansika were last seen in the 2015 film Vaalu, which was helmed by Vijay Chander.

The stars were in relationship a few years ago. In 2013, both had announced on Twitter that they were in love and all set to get married. When their fans and the industry were eagerly awaiting the date of their wedding, news of their breakup hit shocking everyone. Sources in the know say they both decided to part ways due to irreconcilable differences.

Recently, the first look poster of Maha which had Hansika seated on a throne among sadhus and seen smoking a chillum created controversy. A case was slapped on her and director Jameel by a Pattali Makkal Katchi (PMK) functionary citing that the poster had hurt the sentiments of religious people.

The technical crew for Maha include Ghibran for music, Madhan Karky for lyrics and Laxman cranking the camera.

Hansika was last seen playing the lead opposite Vikram Prabhu in Thuppakki Munai last year. She also has Atharvaa’s 100 in the pipeline. Last year, she made her Malayalam debut in Mohanlal’s Villain, in which she played a character with grey shades.
