Maanadu is one of the long-standing projects for Simbhu. Directed by Venkat Prabhu and produced by Suresh Kamatchi the project is under halt for several reasons and finally, the shooting was resumed in March this year before lockdown prevents further progress in the movie. Tamil Nadu government has been reluctant to permit shooting but has relaxed their stands and permitted shooting.
On hearing this news Simbhu has called Suresh Kamatchi asked to plan for shooting. If everything goes fine Simbhu’s Maanadu will be the first project to go floors after a lockdown in Tamil. Almost 28 days can be shot without the mass crowd and this enables the Maanadu producer to plan shooting accordingly.
