The divergent posters raised questioned among the fans as they wondered if the actor would be playing a dual role.
In the eccentric poster, Simbu is seen in a praying stance with a bleeding head and a bullet wedged on his forehead.
The announcement poster is engrossing, as Simbu who seems to be playing a Muslim role is seen praying in the middle of a riot situation with cut-outs of leaders seen in a silhouette.
Produced by Suresh Kamatchi, Maanaadu has Kalyani Priyadarshan starring opposite Simbu.
After completing Suseenthiran's Eeswaran movie, Simbu has now joined the team and resumed shooting of Maanaadu. Directed by Venkat Prabhu.
