One of the most flamboyant stars in Tamil cinema, STR enjoys massive popularity and stands on a league of his own from the rest of the celebrities and personalities.

The actor tasted massive success last year in Mani Ratnam’s multi-starrer, Chekka Chivantha Vaanam, with the film going on to be declared a superhit after which Simbu was seen in the action comedy family drama, Vantha Rajavathaan Varuven, released sometime back.

Meanwhile, STR was announced to be part of Maanadu to be directed by Venkat Prabhu under Suresh Kamatchi’s V House Productions banner. As known already, the actor had left for London for a short break and will be returning back home soon to begin work on the upcoming film touted to be a political entertainer.

That said, a new image of Simbu is now doing the rounds across social networking forums showing the star spending time with friends and sporting a thick moustache with a stubble along with spectacles. Although the look STR is seen in the picture cannot be assumed to be the final look he will be seen in Maanadu, the actor no doubt appears to be quite charming. 

We will have to wait for his return and subsequently the film to roll into production to know as to plans that are in store, which we can expect sometime in the days ahead.
