Silambarasan or Simbu has had a bad patch these past few years. In the past too, it was Gautam Menon who turned things around for STR with the blockbuster, Vinnaithandi Varuvaya in 2010. Simbu then went on to give hits like, Vaanam, Osthe, and Podaa Podi. In 2012, 2013 and 2014 Simbu had only one release per year. In 2015, Simbu was hit with the Beep song controversy and his image was damaged considerably. In the beginning of 2016, a single track called Thalli Pogathey from Acham Enbadhu Madamaiyada (AYM) released. It turned things again for Simbu as the teaser which released along with the song put Simbu in a new light. Once again, Gautam Menon turned things around for Simbu.
Just hours before AYM’s release, Simbu wrote a heartfelt letter and it is breaking the internet. Read his open letter here:
Why a letter now from me? That’s because I really wanted to express what I was feeling and experiencing, and write to you before the release of #AYM.. First of all I am very happy as to how the industry has been responding to AYM. I feel that in itself its first success.
