Silambarasan TR is on cloud nine after the blockbuster success of his Vendhu Thanindhathu Kaadu and the actor will next be seen in the highly-anticipated Pathu Thala. Touted to be an intense gangster film, the upcoming venture is being directed by Sillunu Oru Kaadhal fame Obeli N. Krishna under blockbuster producer K. E.

With Pathu Thala already announced to open in cinemas on December 14, a new shooting spot photo of Simbu has now been released by director Krishna on social media on Saturday night. 

Sharing the picture, Obeli Krishna informed fans that the Pathu Thala song is an energetic number and will also show STR setting the dance floor on fire. The shooting for the film is currently taking place in Hyderabad and the picturization of the song has been carried out well into the night, reports say. This latest update from director Krishna has come at a time when there have been speculations on social media stating that the film’s release might get postponed to 2023. There is a massive buzz surrounding Pathu Thala as it has Simbu playing the role of a don, who goes by name of AGR, with the story set in locations in and around the Kanyakumari district. Check out the tweet below:

Pathu Thala is said to be a remake of the 2017 Kannada blockbuster, Mufti, which was directed by Narthan and featured superstar Shiva Rajkumar in the role of a dreaded gangster, while Sriimurali played the role of an undercover police officer. In the Tamil version, Gautham Karthik has been cast in the role of a cop, while the supporting cast includes filmmaker Gautham Vasudev Menon as the antagonist, Priya Bhavani Shankar as the female lead, followed by Kalaiyarasan, Asuran fame Teejay Arunasalam, poet Manushyaputhiran, Doctor star Reddin Kingsley, Malayalam actress Anu Sithara, and popular child artiste Manasvi Kottachi of Imaikkaa Nodigal and Maamanithan fame in pivotal roles. Silambarasan will be looking to hit it out of the park with Pathu Thala and make it a hat-trick after his Maanaadu (2021) and Vendhu Thanindhathu Kaadu this year turned out to be smash hit box office successes.
