According to sources, Simbu has roped in Tollywood's latest sensation Deeksha Seth as the female lead in his his next flick Vettai Mannan, to be directed by debutant Nelson. Deeksha has already signed Vikram's Vendhan, directed by Suseendaran.
Unlike VTV, Vaanam and Podaa Podi (ongoing), Vettai Mannan will have lots of action with a strong comedy element. Interestingly, Nelson has worked with Simbu in Manmadhan and Vallavan. Vettai Mannan, an action-packed gangster story, is Simbu's costliest film till date (30 to 40 crores). Reportedly the film will narrate the egoistic conflict between two men who work under a don.
Jai of Subramaniapuram fame will play an important role (as Simbu's friend) in this film which will be shot in Chennai, United States and Mexico; Yuvan Shankar Raja will compose its music.
