Nelson Dilipkumar is a prominent filmmaker who created a name for himself after directing two hit movies titled 'Kolamavu Kokila' and 'Doctor' with Nayanthara and Sivakarthikeyan in the lead. The director is currently directing Thalapathy Vijay's upcoming movie 'Beast' and the highly anticipated 'Thalaivar 169' with Superstar Rajinikanth.

Nelson who worked as a director in TV channels for years, reportedly planned his Kollywood movie debut with actor Simbu. The film titled ‘Vettai Mannan’ was supposedly an action-thriller, but was shelved halfway due to budget constraints.

Since both director Nelson and actor Simbu are on top of their film career - Nelson with back to back successful movies and Simbu joining Bigg Boss Ultimate after Maanadu's success, it is speculated that the shelved movie might be revived as fans would eager to see the combination of Nelson and Simbu.
