In the earlier stages of their career, Dhanush and Simbu were said to be rivals and reportedly had differences but they have buried their hatchet and have turned friends.

Dhanush recently admitted that he had minor differences with Simbu but has resolved it. "We both understood that the misunderstanding was primarily because of our lack of interactions in the past. So we spoke and understood that all the misunderstandings were based on lies we were forced to believe," Behindwoods quoted Dhanush as saying.

Interestingly, Simbu's upcoming Tamil film "Vaalu" has a dialogue that counters Dhanush's lines in "Padikkathavan." Actress Hansika Motwani utters the dialogue in "Vaalu" - "Oru sila pasangala paakka paakka dhaan pidikkum. Aana, unna maari pasangala paatha odane pidikkum ("Some guys are likeable only after you see them time and again, but guys like you are likeable instantly").

When questioned about this line, the "Mariyaan" actor said, "Simbu is a very handsome man and I agree with Hansika. Ladies can fall in love with him at the first sight, as she says. But, with me it takes some time."

You can call it a coincidence, Simbu (aka STR) and Hansika recently made their relationship public after denying the reports of their link up for months.

"Been hearing to many rumours abt my personal life, so jus wana clear.yes!I'm seeing Str:)n hence I wouldnt like 2talk abt my personal life," Hansika tweeted.

Later, Simbu also confirmed saying, "Yes I'm am with hansika and right now she is doing really good and marriage will b decided by our family ... Hope u will respect our privacy."
