    Move over beer, bootleg and beedis. It’s time for espressos, smoothies and Starbucks. It’s no longer going to be Middle-aged desi boys speaking Bollywood Hindi on Oxford Street or Trafalgar Square.
    The southern star-in-transformation, Simbu aka STR (TR Silambarasan), and his debutant director, Vignesh Selva, are joining the club. They have just finished canning an uber-chic Tamil movie titled Podaa Podi in the British capital. It’s shot entirely in London and is billed as Simbu’s costliest film till date.

    [​IMG] According to the director, this is an Indian film that has been shot in London for the longest period — six months.

    The film has been in-the-making for a long time, which the director attributes to the consistency of season that the unique look and feel of the film demanded. The film traverses three phases of the life of a girl and a boy who come from different backgrounds. Simbu’s heroine in the film is a ravishing Varalaxmi Sarathkumar, an Anupam Kher-trained debutant, and daughter of Tamil actor Sarathkumar.
    According to the director, this is an Indian film that has been shot in London for the longest period — six months. The proof: a baby who features as a new-born in the movie was six months old by the time the director declared pack up.
    To capture the escapist landscape of London and some never-before-shot locales, Simbu and company roped in British cinematographer Duncan Telford. By the way, Simbu had also claimed he would rope in a Hollywood A-lister to act alongside him. No evidence of that, though.

    Read that even Sharath Kumar wants the same, that his daughter should get closer to Simbhu :)
