It's going to be a triple celebration this Deepavali for ardent movie fans as Simbu's 'Maanadu' will be releasing on Deepavali with Rajinikanth's 'Annaatthe'. Ajith's 'Valimai' is also speculated to release during Deepavali and fans are awaiting the official update.

Maanadu is an upcoming political thriller directed by Venkat Prabhu, featuring Simbu and Kalyani Priyadarshan in the lead role with SJ Suriya playing the antagonist.

Previously, the production of the movie got delayed as the moviemakers removed Simbu from the movie a year after the commencement of the pre-production works. The movie's producer Suresh Kamatchi cited Simbu's poor punctuality as the reason and revealed that the movie will go on floors with another actor in the lead role. Meanwhile, Simbu announced that he will work on another project titled 'Maghaa Maanadu'.

Later both the moviemaker and the actor have sorted their differences and re-launched the project which is all set to release on Deepavali this year. Check out Simbu's announcement here:
