Silambarasan TR's Maanaadu was one of the biggest hits of last year and it emerged highly successful at the box office. The film was directed by Venkat Prabhu and his effective screenplay writing and top-class execution earned praises from the critics and the general audience. In a surprising turn of events, producer Suresh Kamatchi who bankrolled the film under the banner of V House Productions has revealed the official box office collection numbers and the update has garnered wide attention on social media.

The final lifetime collection of Maanaadu is rounded off at 117 crores and producer Suresh Kamatchi officially confirmed the same with a tweet that read, "Glad to announce that our #Maanaadu has collected 117Cr at Worldwide Box Office. It becomes this year's Mega Blockbuster. I thank @SilambarasanTR_ @vp_offl @iam_SJSuryah @thisisysr @kalyanipriyan @Cinemainmygenes @Richardmnathan @silvastunt @UmeshJKumar @johnmediamanagr." This indeed tells us that Maanaadu is Silambarasan TR's most successful and biggest blockbuster in his career and the star actor must definitely be elated about it.

The film featured SJ Suryah playing the key antagonist and his face off against Simbu was one of the major highlights of the film. Kalyani Priydarshan played the female lead in the film that had Karunakaran, Premgi Amaren, Daniel Annie Pope, Y Gee Mahendran, SA Chandrasekharan, and Vaigai Chandrasekhar in supporting roles. Silambarasan TR's next release in Tamil cinema will be Vendhu Thanindhathu Kaadu which is currently in the post production stages. Vendhu Thanindhathu Kaadu is directed by Gautham Vasudev Menon, marking his third successful collaboration with STR after Vinnaithaandi Varuvaayaa and Achcham Yenbadhu Madamaiyada.

Vendhu Thanindhathu Kaadu features Siddhi Idnani as the female lead and has music composed by A.R.Rahman. With VTK gearing up for its release in July or August, Silambarasan TR is expected to start shooting for his next, Corona Kumar, which is helmed by Gokul of Idharkkuthaane Aasaipattai Balakumara fame. STR also has Pathu Thala in his pipeline.
