STR will be re-entering social media forums after a hiatus on October 22, coming Thursday at 9.09 AM. Silambarasan was quite an active personality on social media who used to regularly interact and share updates about his projects through his Twitter page. However, he decided to quit social media on August 14, 2017 citing that the place is filled with negativity and hatred. Simbu’s last tweet before quitting social media was, “In spite of negativism, positivity was my forte but today's social media !!! Negativity is too dominating, and I'm scared to be a part. Social media was necessary as a celebrity, but I prefer to follow my heart. So before I depart, just wanna say. Always choose love :) #HappylndependenceDay”.

Ever since then, Simbu has stayed out of social media and his project updates were regularly shared by his PR team. Following a break of 3 years, the VTV actor is now all set for a grand return to social media. His new social media accounts will be live on October 22 at 9.09 AM and we can expect the star hero to strike big with his first social media post. What made Simbu reconsider coming back to social media is something we will have to wait and see, but this news has come as a great surprise for the fans.

On the work front, Simbu is currently shooting for his untitled next with director Suseenthiran. Produced by Madhav Media, this rural action entertainer is being shot as a quickie in a single schedule and it features Bhoomi fame Nidhhi Agerwal as the female lead. The current musical sensation Thaman SS has been assigned to take care of the songs and background score of the film. It is said that Simbu has lost a few kilos for his character in the film and industry talk is that the fans will definitely be surprised by his look in the film. According to reports, the film’s first look is expected to be released on October 26 on account of Vijaya Dhasami festival.

Simbu also has Maanaadu which has got huge expectations among the fans. Produced by Suresh Kamatchi and directed by Venkat Prabhu, this political drama is planned to be shot on a grand scale. Yuvan Shankar Raja scores music for this film which is all set to resume shooting from November 2020. STR will also be seen in an extended cameo in Hansika Motwani’s 50th film, Maha, directed by UR Jameel. For now, check out the announcement regarding Simbu’s social media return below:
