Silambarasan TR is now in a good momentum and is constantly shooting for his movies. After completing a month-long schedule for Susienthiran’s Eeswaran in Dindigul, STR travelled to Pondicherry for the new schedule of Venkat Prabhu’s Maanaadu. The shooting of Maanaadu is currently happening at the said place with the main cast and crew and the shoot has been planned as per the Covid-19 protocols. Now, exciting details regarding his next outing are revealed, and here is what you need to know. It is a known fact that STR is playing one of the leads (alongside Gautham Karthik) in the Tamil remake of Mufti, the Kannada film which starred Dr Shiva Rajkumar and Srimurali in the lead roles.

The Tamil remake was announced to be directed by Narthan, who helmed the original Kannada version and the makers completed one schedule. The pictures of STR’s makeover went viral on social media. However, after one schedule, the film never saw any progress due to several reasons. There were also rumours that producer KE Gnanavel Raja filed a complaint against STR at the Producers Council alleging that he is not cooperating for the shoot. However, after months of wait, the Tamil remake of Mufti is finally set to see some good development. Yes! It has now been revealed that the shooting of this film will resume after Simbu completes his ongoing Maanaadu schedule.

Director Narthan has walked out of the project due to his other commitments and Krishna of Sillunu Oru Kaadhal fame has been roped in to helm the film. Krishna will direct this remake and he is currently said to be busy planning the schedule. Producer KE Gnanavel Raja officially confirmed this news in his recent interview with Times Of India and it is going to be an interesting project to watch out for. The Tamil dialogues have been penned by Madhan Karky. STR and Gautham Karthik are sharing screen space for the first time and let us hope that this film turns out to be successful.

The fans have got huge expectations on this movie, considering the fact that STR plays an underworld don. More details regarding the rest of the cast and crew are awaited. Stay tuned to this space for more updates.
