Simbu and Hansika Motwani’s affair and break up could be a personal matter for the pair. But for the producers, who have signed them to play lead roles, their split is the last thing they wanted.

The actors co-star in two movies – Vaalu and Vettai Mannan – which have both been delayed.

The duo’s break up doesn’t seem to be helping either. Many in the industry feel it could provide good publicity, but the real problem arises if it is found they won’t work together now that they are no longer an item.

Their reluctance to work together and lack of co-cooperation could have a severe effect on the film’s takings. The producers hope the pair can be professional and put their personal issues aside and complete the projects. –
