She recently completed dubbing for the film, with the shooting having completed last month. A village drama directed by Ponram, Samantha plays a village girl in the film. She learnt Silambam for this film and will be seen swirling the stick for some of the action sequences.
Silambam has featured in other Tamil films such as Pattikada Pattanama, Periya Idathu Penn, Thevar Magan, Rickshawkaran, Maattukara Velan, Thanikattu Raja, and various other films.
After Varuthapadatha Valibar Sangam and Rajini Murugan, this film marks the third collaboration between Ponram and Sivakarthikeyan. The shooting began last year with major portions canned in Thenkasi. The film, said to be a rural entertainer, also stars Simran Bagga and comedian Soori. Cinematographer Balasubramaniem will crank the camera, with composer D Imman on board for music.
Apart from this, Samantha has Super Deluxe and the Tamil and Telugu remake of the Kannada film U-Turn in the pipeline.
