There's new life in Silambarasan TR and that has been quite evident over the past few months as the flamboyant star has been making his presence felt in a strong manner in the minds and hearts of fans. Simbu, who has begun preparations for his pilgrimage to Sabarimala, had been a part of an upcoming venture said to be a remake of the blockbuster Kannada film Mufti, which is being produced by K. E. Gnanavelraja's Studio Green, with the reputed banner now dropping the massive announcement that the title launch of the project will finally be taking place on December 24. 

Taking to their social media pages, Studio Green officially announced that their upcoming 20th venture also featuring Gautham Karthik alongside STR will be directed by Sillunu Oru Kaadhal fame Krishna. They wrote on Twitter, "We are glad & proud to have the trend setter of our ages  @SilambarasanTR_ and the Heart throbe  @Gautham_Karthik joining forces for our 20th project !!  "Sillunu oru kaadhal"s, Jillana director @nameis_krishna is the captain of this ship! #Studiogreen20 @kegvraja  Bless us!". It is to be noted that the film had begun production in early 2019 under Mufti fame Narthan's direction, who has since left the project. The original neo-noir action thriller film featured Kannada superstar Shiva Rajkumar playing the role of a gangster, with Srimurali as an undercover police officer. Although not much is known about the Tamil version, the title launch announcement poster hints at the film’s story set in Kanyakumari and the southern districts of Tamil Nadu. Check out Studio Green's announcement:
