Silambarasan TR is riding the wave after the spectacular box office success of his Maanaadu last year, while also recently being felicitated with an honorary doctorate from Vels University for his distinguished excellence in the field of cinema. The flamboyant multi-talented star is currently attached to several films among which also includes the highly-anticipated Pathu Thala being directed by Sillunu Oru Kaadhal fame Obeli N Krishna under K. E. Gnanavelraja's Studio Green banner. Production on Pathu Thala had kicked off last year in various parts of Tamil Nadu, with the makers on Tuesday evening dropping the big update that National Award-winning editor Praveen K. L. has come on board the film, which will see Simbu playing the role of a gangster. 

Praveen K. L., who impressed everyone with his work in Maanaadu, is reuniting with STR once again and his inclusion is no doubt a big addition to Pathu Thala, which is an official Tamil remake of the critically-acclaimed Mufti in Kannada that featured Shiva Rajkumar and Sri Murali in the lead roles under Narthan's direction. Praveen K. L. has been elevating his game with every venture he has worked on and that was visible in Maanaadu as his editing proved to be one of the biggest strengths of the film, which revolved extensively around the concept of time-loop. It will be interesting to witness his magic once again in Pathu Thala, which also has Gautham Karthik and Priya Bhavani Shankar in the star cast. 

Pathu Thala will see Gautham Karthik as a cop, while Priya Bhavani Shankar is appearing as his love interest, with Asuran fame Teejay Arunasalam and Madras and Sarpatta Parambarai's Kalaiyarasan cast in pivotal roles. Academy Award-winning composer A. R. Rahman is scoring the music and background score for this Simbu-starrer once again after their Vinnaithaandi Varuvaayaa, Achcham Yenbadhu Madamaiyada, Chekka Chivantha Vaanam and the upcoming Vendhu Thanindhathu Kaadu
