Silambarasan TR and director Gautham Vasudev Menon would be teaming up for the third time after the massive success of Vinnaithaandi Varuvaayaa and Achcham Yenbadhu Madamaiyada. The duo will be joining hands for a new film that will be bankrolled by Isari K Ganesh’s Vels Film International. The official announcement regarding the project was made last night (January 28) and it has created a sensational buzz on social media. The project has already excited the fans and people are now looking forward to it. We are yet to get clarity on if this will be a fresh script or the highly anticipated sequel to Vinnaithaandi Varuvaayaa. We will get a clear picture in the next few days.

Gautham Menon is currently busy with the post production works of his next film, Joshua: Imai Pol Kaakha that stars Puppy fame Varun and Raahei in the lead roles. Joshua is produced by Vels Film International and the production house had signed Gautham Menon on a three-film deal during the release of ENPT. As part of the deal, Simbu has now been signed as the lead for one of the films. A tweet from the official Twitter handle of Vels Film International read, “On this auspicious Day, #VelsFilmInternational Elated to announce a collaboration with dear @SilambarasanTR_ & director @menongautham for a film beginning very soon from a really brilliant script. More exciting details will follow. #PositiveVibes #SilambarasanTR47 @IshariKGanesh”.

STR also took to his Twitter page to share his happiness about collaborating with his good friend and director Gautham Menon for the third time. He tweeted, “Happy as always to team up with my brother @menongautham and a new beginning with @IshariKGanesh @VelsFilmIntl @AshKum19 #SilambarasanTR47 God bless”.

Director Gautham Menon, while talking about the film, said that the script is very special and it looks like we can expect some solid content from GVM and STR. “Some projects & scripts are destined to be special. This one feels like that. Thank you @IshariKGanesh sir for making this happen in your own special way! It’s like homecoming to work with my @SilambarasanTR_. The journey continues @VelsIntl #PositiveVibes #SilambarasanTR47”, Gautham Menon tweeted. Tentatively called as SilambarasanTR 47, this movie is expected to go on floors once both of them (Simbu and Gautham Menon) complete their respective current commitments. While GVM has Joshua and Dhruva Natchathiram to be completed, STR has Maanaadu and Pathu Thala to be wrapped.
