Simbu’s fight with depression before Maanaadu


Kollywood hero Silambarasan aka STR’s highly awaited political sci-fi thriller Maanaadu is releasing on November 25. Also starring Kalyani Priyadarshan and SJ Suryah in lead roles, Maanaadu is directed by Vikram Prabhu and produced by Suresh Kamatchi.

Maanaadu Telugu version is titled The Loop. Simbu landed in Hyderabad yesterday to promote The Loop. During a promotional interview with the Telugu film media, Simbu said that at one point, he went into depression as his career was at stake.

” I worked hard and reformed myself. I quit drinking and eating non-veg and reduced 27 kilos. I have been working quite hard on Maanaadu for the last 3 years. All the difficulties I had faced over the years came as a flash and that’s why I was moved to tears at Maanaadu’s pre-release event,” said Simbu.
