Simbu is a popular Tamil actor, but in the last few years he has proved himself as a singer too, crooning several chart busters. He said he started singing even before he became an actor for pocket money. He knew it would help him make quick bucks, and, therefore, he was game for it. But he never anticipated that he would become so busy with singing that he has now reached a point where he is turning down songs because of lack of time.
