Silambarasan TR was recently felicitated with an honorary doctorate by Vels University for his distinguished excellence in the field of cinema. The multi-talented actor, who is acting in the upcoming action thriller Vendhu Thanindhathu Kaadu, has him reunited with blockbuster director Gautham Vasudev Menon and is being produced by Dr. Ishari K. Ganesh's Vels Film International banner. Ishari Ganesh, who is also the President of the Tamil Nadu Olympic Association, in an interview with Galatta, spoke about the release plans for STR's Vendhu Thanindhathu Kaadu and revealed that it has been decided to be brought to the big screens in April. He further stated that there are only 10 days of shoot remaining after which it will be a wrap for the production by the end of January. Ishari Ganesh added that three schedules have been completed in Mumbai and the final leg of filming will also be held there, which has been delayed to the COVID-19. 

Elaborating the release plans for Vendhu Thanindhathu Kaadu, Dr. Ishari Ganesh said, "We are planning to bring the film to the big screens by April 14 and will arrive at a final decision after reviewing the COVID situation. We will also look at the release lineup of other ventures at the time and arrive at a decision for VTK or else it would be equivalent to killing our own film. There are massive expectations for Vendhu Thanindhathu Kaadu and it has come out really well so far from the footage that we have seen." Ishari Ganesh's update on the film will no doubt come as a joyous news as the first look glimpse that was released last year went on to receive a stellar feedback, with the expectations since then skyrocketing. 

Vendhu Thanindhathu Kaadu marks the third-time collaboration for Silambarasan with Gautham Menon and A. R. Rahman after their Vinnaithaandi Varuvaayaa and Achcham Yenbadhu Madamaiyada. The film has Simbu paired opposite popular Telugu heroine Siddhi Idnani, who is making her Tamil cinema debut, with the cast also featuring veteran actress Radikaa Sarathkumar, Paava Kadhaigal fame Aangelina Abraham, Malayalam actor Neeraj Madhav among others in pivotal roles. Vendhu Thanindhathu Kaadu has a talented technical team on board as well among whom are Siddhartha Nuni handling the cinematography, Anthony taking care of the editing and Rajeevan for the art direction.
