Silambarasan TR's Maanaadu which released on November 25 amidst huge expectations, has turned out to be a blockbuster hit at the box office. The film is performing exceedingly well with highly positive reviews from the critics and general audience. Having said that, the film's music director Yuvan Shankar Raja has now issued an official statement thanking the entire team of Maanaadu and the audience for making the film what it is now. Yuvan mentioned that Maanaadu is a film that stays very special to him, expressing his happiness about the success of the movie.

Yuvan's official statement read, "All praise to Almighty! With my heart brimming with praises to God, I would like to thank everyone responsible for the success of MAANAADU. Personally, this project has been very special for me and close to my heart. My erstwhile collaborations with Venkat Prabhu and Silambarasan TR have had myriad songs, but this is the first time our collaboration had a limited number of tracks. However, I am completely spellbound over the way, music lovers and audiences have noticed my efforts in BGM and appreciated them. I thank producer Suresh Kamatchi, director Venkat Prabhu, and Silambarasan for banking their trust in me.

I am feeling and proud of my friend-brother like Silambarasan for his soulful dedication towards this project. I am overwhelmed with emotions to see the positive reviews showering his efforts. SJ Suryah sir has exercised his complete energy into this film, thereby becoming a strong pillar. Every single artiste and technician have contributed their best in enriching the essence of Maanaadu. I would like to thank the critics, audiences, and fans for spreading the positive word about my music and the film. There’s a famous quote that says, “What you’re searching for is in search of you?” And I am glad that the entire team of Maanaadu has found ‘Unconditional Love and Acclaims’ from everyone".

Maanaadu is directed by Venkat Prabhu and produced by Suresh Kamatchi. SJ Suryah plays the antagonist in this time-loop based political drama.
