The teaser for Simbu's Vantha Rajavathaan Varuven was released on Saturday after a delay of one-and-a-half hours due to technical issues. Produced by Lyca, the film has been directed by Sundar C and has Megha Akash, Catherine Tresa, Yogi Babu, Ramya Krishna, Prabhu, and Motta Rajendran as part of the star cast. It's the remake of the 2013 Telugu film Attarintiki Daredi, starring Pawan Kalyan.
The teaser begins with Simbu's voice-over saying, "Those who have trusted in me have never been ruined, but those who haven't trusted in me have been ruined." The visuals then show the actor beating up a bunch of white men in a foreign country.
As was only to be expected, the teaser has some lines on love like "I'm there to unite everyone with their love, but who is there to unite me with my love?" Sentimental soup boy much?
Apart from "King", he's also referred to as "Badass with a broken heart", reminding one strongly of his last disastrous "romance" Anbanavan Asaradhavan Adangadhavan. The short teaser already includes some cringe moments, including a bit towards the end when Simbu is feeling up his co-star and the director apparently doesn't cut the scene. Haha‚Ä¶ Not.
Simbu's last release was Mani Ratnam's Chekka Chivantha Vaanam, a multi-starrer. The actor was in trouble with the Producers' Council after allegations surfaced that he'd behaved unprofessional on the sets of AAA and caused a loss to the makers. It was also reported that the Producers' Council had issued him a red card.
However, Simbu has been saying that all issues will be sorted out and that Vantha Rajavathaan Varuven will release for Pongal 2019. If that indeed happens, the film will compete with Rajinikanth's Petta and Ajith's Viswasam at the box-office.
